The IBM Software Development Kit (SDK) for PowerLinux is a free, Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The SDK integrates C/C++ source development with the Advance Toolchain, Post-Link Optimization, and classic Linux performance analysis tools, including OProfile and Valgrind. The IBM SDK for PowerLinux provides you with an all-in-one solution for developing software on PowerLinux platforms. This demo shows you how to access the SDK using a technique called X-Forwarding, which allows you to integrate the SDK interface to an interface running on your Linux desktop. It also shows you how to create a virtual desktop session on the POWER server and connect to it using either Linux or Microsoft® Windows® clients.
