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.

Converting COM request to web service request
Since its introduction, web service has become a standard mechanism for integration between applications. However, there are many applications written in languages that do not provide a strong support for web service - for example Visual C++ V6.0 or Visual Basic V6.0. One approach to enable these applications is to have an adaptor that can convert a request into a web service call. This tutorial describes how to develop this adaptor implemented as a DCOM server using C#. It basically receives a COM request and forward the request to a web service endpoint. It also provides steps on how to make a COM request in C++ and shows steps on how to implement a Java web service. In short, it demonstrates how web service interoperability on the .NET and JEE platform can be achieved. C# code is developed using Microsoft Visual Studio, while the web services is developed using Rational Application Developer V7.5 and deployed on the WebSphere Application Server V7.0 test environment.

Create an alerts system using XMPP, SMS, pureXML, and PHP
Thanks to the native XML support that pureXML offers IBM DB2 database developers, you can load XML data directly into your database, freeing up development time to add functionality to your application. Follow along in this tutorial to import an XML file with Euro foreign exchange rates into an IBM DB2 database and use special XQuery and SQL/XML functions to split this XML into separate database rows. You will also create a PHP script that pulls down new rates from the European Central Bank (ECB) Web site each day. Then you will extend the script to send update alerts to a Google Talk user using the XMPP protocol, and to a cell phone by SMS text message using the Clickatell SMS gateway service. Finally, you will create a PHP script that generates a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) graph of this data.

Create BlackBerry applications with open source tools, Part 1: Laying the groundwork
There is perhaps no bigger market-transformational technology than the cell phone. And within that classification of devices, perhaps none more recognizable than the BlackBerry from Research In Motion (RIM). Most people think it is just for business e-mail, but there is untapped potential in that addictive device. Despite being a popular platform, third-party applications are still needed for the BlackBerry platform. There is no better way to bring those applications to fruition than to enable the help from the open source community. Follow along as this tutorial lays the groundwork for an open source data-collection application, upon which an accessible and easy-to-use data-collection service is built.

Create GLA sensors and outputters
The Generic Log Adapter provides a way to read any log, monitor it for events, extract information from those events, and output the results. It provides an architecture that enables you to customize the components that provide these functions. An earlier tutorial showed you how to create a very basic component, an outputter that sends events to Standard.out. Now we'll show you how to create a sensor component that checks for events reported through e-mail and an outputter that sends an e-mail notification if it finds any.

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.
