Explore the innovation of open source solutions available from IBM and see the power and flexibility of an open community development environment.
You get a hands-on demonstration of advanced editing techniques, including how to perform a recursive edit, mark and use rectangles of text, and handle complex selection techniques using the kill ring and the secondary selection.
Compare Apache Derby and Geronimo open source solutions with the IBM open source based commercial offerings of WebSphere Application Server Community Edition and IBM Cloudscape.
This tutorial introduces you to some of the essential concept of modes, shows you some of the powerful text manipulation functions available, and teaches you how to use the built-in search, replace, and spell check facilities of Emacs.
You can use Kerberos to verify the identities of users and principals over networks.
Learn to search your data easier and more naturally with XQuery 1.0.
Find your application problems early and spot light on code quality. This article will cover some of the various types of automated developer tests you can run with every source code change.
The open source Emacs editor (one of the powerhouses of UNIX computing) is a large, complex application that does everything from editing text to functioning as a complete development environment.
Managing processes is quite straightforward with tools like kill and nice, but what happens when you want to provide even finer management control over your processes?
Nearly thirty years of growth haven't exhausted the potential of the REstructured eXtended eXecutor (Rexx) language. The first of the widely used "scripting" languages continues to expand its capabilities and platform range, and it makes for a particularly good match with AIX.
It has been said that the database wars are over and the relational database won.
To protect your AIX system, you need to have a solid backup strategy, multiple backups, offsite storage of data, and a fully tested and proven plan of restoring data to your systems. Having a solid backup strategy decreases downtime.
Java 5 added a number of powerful language features: generics, enumerations, annotations, autoboxing, and the enhanced for loop. Even if you're stuck on JDK 1.4, you can still use generics. Use Java and theory to learn how.
