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

Develop a store locator application using IBM DB2 pureXML and ASP.NET
In this connected and open world, where data flows freely, you can find a vast amount of useful information on the Web. In the past, if you wanted to find the location of the nearest store for your favorite retailer, you probably looked it up in the telephone directory, found the company's phone number, called them, and asked for directions to their nearest outlet. This method is a recipe for getting lost, wasting time, and a general frustration for the customer. Today, however, this has all changed. Now you simply open your Web browser and visit the company's Web site, where you can usually find a "Store Locator" feature that will help you find the store nearest to you, and conveniently plot it on a map to make it easier to find. In this tutorial, you will learn to develop such a feature using C# ASP.NET and an IBM DB2 database.
