Improve web application security with jQuery Mobile
Many web developers consider security a low priority. Security is frequently relegated to the end of the software development life cycle, as little more than an afterthought. Sometimes, software security is neglected entirely, resulting in applications rife with common vulnerabilities. Because such bugs might manifest only under conditions present during an attack, they can be hard to detect prior to such events without knowledge of how the exploitation process works. Using a web application built with jQuery Mobile, PHP, and MySQL, this tutorial shows how many types of vulnerabilities occur along with common methods of exploitation and, most importantly, their respective countermeasures.

jQuery Mobile and JSON
jQuery powers many of the sites on the Internet today, providing dynamic user experience in the browser and helping to make traditional desktop applications increasingly rare. Now that browsers found on the major mobile platforms have caught up to desktop browser functionality, the jQuery team has introduced jQuery Mobile, or JQM. The mission of JQM is to bring a universal experience to all major mobile browsers, enabling rich content across the Internet, regardless of the viewing device. This tutorial examines fundamental design concepts around jQuery Mobile in the context of a sales force automation-oriented application. You create an intuitive and visually appealing mobile web application that interacts with an Internet-hosted website to store and manage sales opportunities.

Manipulate CSV data with Python and pureXML
IBM DB2 pureXML allows you to store XML data natively in a relational database management system, giving you the power and flexibility to report on this data without disturbing the advantages that its XML format offers. In this tutorial, you will learn how to connect to a DB2 database from the Python programming language, importing data about population from the United States Census Bureau. You will use Python to convert this CSV file into XML, before inserting this XML data natively into DB2. Finally, you will use Python to create a command-line application that produces some informative tables that you can access through a menu system.

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.

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.

Build a Support Knowledge Base using DB2 pureXML and PHP
Creating applications that use a hybrid of relational data and XML data is easy thanks to the pureXML feature of IBM DB2 database servers. In this tutorial, you use PHP to create a Web application that connects to an IBM DB2 Express-C database and stores some of its data in traditional relational database columns, and some of it in native XML columns. You also learn how to use SQL/XML queries to retrieve, insert, update, and delete data from this database. Beyond the hands-on, project-based training, the tutorial equips you with the skills and conceptual knowledge you need to develop your own hybrid applications.
