To call attention to popular articles on Bluemix available on IBM developerWorks, this weekly post will introduce three “best of” articles. This week’s entry focuses on tutorials and quick application building exercises using Android and J2EE.
If you’ve been following developerWorks, you’ve noticed that we’ve published tons of great tutorials, complete with sample apps and code, in recent months. In this article, Chris Rothemich, developerWorks Editor in Chief, gives you a rundown of some of the very best Bluemix tutorials of 2014.
By staying within Java EE standards, the “write once, run anywhere” promise of Java can remain intact across IBM Bluemix and on-premise virtual application patterns. In this tutorial, you’ll learn about the differences in database connectivity, how to use JNDI to keep your code portable, and a technique to automate Bluemix database initialization without coding the initialization into the application. With just a little extra effort, your application can remain independent of the platform on which it is deployed.
We recently released an update to all IBM Cloud Databases which allows you to enable public and/or private service endpoints for your database deployments. In this post, we’ll walk you through the setup.
IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS) is giving you more control over who can access your data. We have introduced a new capability allowing you to configure your buckets with trusted IP address(es) that will dictate access to the data in COS.
