|Generating online reports using JasperReports and WebSphere Studio
Until recently, you had two options for the common requirement to generate Web reports from business data in an enterprise repository -- design and write the code from scratch, or buy a commercial reporting product such as Crystal Reports. This article explores a third option: using WebSphere Studio with JasperReports, the open-source Java tool that uses XML templates to generate reports that can be saved as PDF or CSV, displayed in a browser, or sent to a printer. A sample Web application shows you how to create reports in HTML and PDF, using DB2 as the enterprise data repository and WebSphere Application Server to deploy the application.

|Identifying memory leaks with the WebSphere Studio Profiler and the JDK Heapdump utility
Java's automatic garbage collection makes it much easier to manage memory use in Java and J2EE applications, but it does not help manage references to objects. If object references are not removed when necessary, memory leaks can occur and cause critical performance problems. This article explains how the WebSphere Studio Profiler can help you solve memory leak problems, and how the IBM Heapdump and HeapRoots tools can help with problems that may be too complex for the WebSphere Studio Profiler. For each tool, the article describes the performance considerations and suitability for special tasks, then uses sample code to show you how to efficiently use the tools to debug Java memory leak problems in J2EE applications.

|IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal: <comment lines> from Reginaldo Barosa
The EGL language is similar to COBOL, but has elements that are reminiscent of Java syntax, and some concepts that might remind you of objects. That is why EGL, included with WebSphere Studio, is viewed as a path to adopting Java; the difficulty of moving a COBOL developer to the object oriented world and Java is well-known, and EGL helps the transition by being geared toward developers without Java skills.
