Get started with the Data Format Description Language
In this age of big data, the bulk of the data begging to be analyzed is not XML, but rather it is other structured and semi-structured formats, both text and binary. Until now, no open standard has been developed that is capable of describing a wide variety of such data formats. Learn about the Open Grid Forum (OGF) proposed recommendation for a powerful language that describes many different data formats, the Data Format Description Language (DFDL).

When your app crashes, you want to know absolutely everything!
If software engineering was like civil engineering, then mobile apps would be as rock solid as the average modern bridge. However, software engineering is a very different discipline - and a much younger one - than civil engineering. We have best practices and design patterns to help us write excellent software, but it is almost impossible to guarantee a piece of software will never crash. This is an even bigger challenge in today's mobile apps which, thanks to very short release cycles, do not enjoy as much quality assurance as do other kinds of software. In this article, you will understand how the automated crash reporting feature of IBM Mobile Quality Assurance can make your mobile app as strong as a bridge.

Increase throughput with z/OS Language Environment heap storage tuning method
The z/OS Language Environment (LE) component provides a common runtime environment for the IBM version of certain high-level languages. LE provides runtime options that can be customized according to the programs behaviors to achieve better execution performance. This paper puts forward an LE heap storage tuning method for IBM's InfoSphere Data Replication for DB2 for z/OS (Q Replication). The tuning reduces contentions of concurrent heap storage allocation requests among multiple threads of the Q Capture program and Q Apply program of Q Replication for z/OS while keeping the heap storage overall allocation to a minimum. After applying the heap tuning techniques outline in this paper, a notable 13% throughput performance was achieved for OLTP type workloads and CPU reduction was noticed for all workload types

Detecting bootable IBM Power server ISO images
Most ISO images use an ISO 9660 extension that allows the image to be bootable by the basic input/output system (BIOS). IBM Power Systems firmware, on the other hand, does not use such extension. This means that the detection of the bootability of images differ between computer architectures. In software such as hypervisors or even virtual machine (VM) managers, this detection can't consume too many resources and take too much time due to the number of the images they need to manipulate. This makes options like such as trying to boot the image by trial and error or even trying to mount the image in the file system not viable. This article describes a way to detect if an IBM Power server image is bootable by reading the ISO data stream directly, showing a working Python code that illustrates the concepts.

Start pushing: Enable push notification subscriptions in your native iOS mobile applications
Push notifications with IBM Worklight Foundation is a very powerful feature which makes it possible to reach client devices from a single common server code regardless of the vendor services (APNS or GCM). It also makes the entire process of communicating with the users and devices completely transparent to the developer. The purpose of this article is to enable developers to get up and running with Worklight push notifications as quickly as possible, as well as take the concept a step further with suggestions for ways it could be used in a more complex and realistic scenario. This article combines several important topics such as Worklight CLI, Worklight push notifications and Worklight adapter authentication, all used in tandem with a multi-view client application to join under one umbrella most of the pieces that are needed for a real push scenario. This tutorial describes a Worklight push notification scenario for an iOS native mobile application.
