Comment lines: Software solution resiliency guidelines can help prevent bad behavior
Unit testing, system functional testing, performance testing, and the like have traditionally been the only kind of testing that is performed in some form or fashion when implementing a new or updated system. Unfortunately, often overlooked is resiliency testing. The result is that when resiliency issues surface, operations, administration, network, systems, and database personnel all scramble to find the root cause. This typically leads to a relatively lengthy project to ensure the solution becomes - and stays - resilient. This article offers guidelines you can follow to ensure the IT solution is more resilient to environmental changes.

Deliver an exceptional mobile web experience using WebSphere Portal and IBM Worklight, Part 7: Leveraging web content in a mobile app using Worklight
Building on Part 6 of this series on integrating IBM® WebSphere® Portal with IBM Worklight®, this article explains how you can leverage web content meta data and dynamic rules running inside of IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Web Content Manager in an IBM Worklight mobile application. By leveraging the rules defined in Web Content Manager, you have one central place where business users and marketers can define promotions, and other dynamic and personalized content. This retail store example shows how you can combine the native geo-location feature of a mobile device with Web Content Manager's dynamic personalization rules that offer content based on the current user's context, location, or history. This opens up the possibility of a whole new set of applications that can be implemented using Worklight and Web Content Manager together, while keeping the content, its meta data, and the rules stored in Web Content Manager.
