Building a REST service with integrated web services server for IBM i: Part 2
Rapidly changing application environments require a flexible mechanism to exchange data between different application tiers. Representational State Transfer (REST) has gained widespread acceptance across the web as the interface of choice for mobile and interactive applications. You might already be using integrated web services server to expose ILE programs and service programs as SOAP-based web services. This series of articles introduces a powerful new feature of the integrated web services server – the ability to deploy ILE programs and services programs as RESTful web services. In this second part, you will learn how to deploy a simple application as a RESTful web service.

Data purge algorithm: Efficiently delete terabytes of data from DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
Big data introduces data storage and system performance challenges. Keeping your growing tables small and efficient improves system performance as the smaller tables and indices are accessed faster; all other things being equal, a small database performs better than a large one. While traditional data purge techniques work well for smaller databases, they fail as the database size scales up into a few terabytes. This tutorial will discuss an algorithm to efficiently delete terabytes of data from the DB2 database.

Add and detach data partitions from DB2 partitioned tables using InfoSphere DataStage
Table partitioning has benefits like the ability to roll-in (including data in a table) and roll-out (detaching data from a table) and improving query performances particularly in Data warehouse and decision support system environment. These activities are mostly performed manually by the DBAs but in a real-time DWH where there is continuous flow of data via ETL tools, too many manual interventions is unwanted and can impact the ETL running process. The article discusses how ETL process can be used for adding empty partitions to a partitioned table and also removing unwanted partitions from the table without any manual or DBA intervention he or she can gain from reading the content.

Centralize logs for IBM Bluemix apps using the ELK Stack
IBM Bluemix, IBM's next-generation cloud platform, enables developers to quickly build, deploy, and manage cloud applications. Due to its cloud nature, Bluemix does not automatically persist application log files. However, it does let developers drain their logs to external log management services. This feature, coupled with the components of the ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana), not only provide developers a centralized location for persistent logs, but also enables them to run analytics on and visualize the log data. This article is targeted for intermediate developers who are familiar with Bluemix and have a basic familiarity with Linux. It provides a brief background on the ELK Stack and then walks you through the process of installing and configuring the components.

Targeting your applications - what little endian and big endian IBM XL C/C++ compiler differences mean to you
The IBM® POWER8™ platform supports operating systems that use big endian or little endian byte ordering. Migrating programs written for a big endian operating system to a little endian operating system may require code changes to maintain program behaviour or results. There are differences that need to be considered with regards to vectors, storage association between items of different sizes, long doubles, complex numbers, and serialization. The application binary interface (ABI) implemented in IBM XL C/C++ for little endian Linux on Power Systems is different than the ABI implemented in the big endian distributions. New options and built-in functions have been added to help with porting. This article describes these differences, new options, and built-in functions and makes suggestions about code changes to port code to IBM XL C/C++ on POWER8.
