Why going APE would improve software developmentBy:
Randall C. MascianaAbstract:
Tools should assist in creating and testing end-to-end component software, but we now expect developers to use tools to corral a multitude of resources from various disciplines, says the author. He proposes that we let "Autonomous Programming Experts (APEs)" return to developing end-to-end software.

Leveraging 3270 or 5250 data within Web-based mashup applicationsBy:
Learn how to extract 3270 or 5250 data using IBM® Rational® Host Access Transformation Services, which can then be formed into an Atom data feed. This data feed can be utilized by IBM Mashup Center to consolidate with other data sources to create a new situational application for business users. We present an example of extracting data from a 3270 financial application, creating an Atom feed, cataloging that feed, and using that data to create an information dashboard for a loan officer.
