Set up an agile team environment to build an Ionic app - This tutorial (authored by Chris Felix, Advisory IT Specialist at IBM, @chrisfelix82 on Twitter) shows how to manage team development of a mobile application through a DevOps-based approach. Specifically, you'll see how to develop a hybrid Cordova application with Ionic — but many of the techniques apply to any app, hybrid or native. I'll show you how to take an Ionic Framework-based Cordova app and apply team development, back-end services, and quality assurance management. To do this, you'll use IBM DevOps Services with Git integration and two IBM Bluemix services: the Mobile Cloud Data service and Mobile Quality Assurance (MQA) service.

This three-part tutorial walks you through building a multi-tier web application from scratch, using IBM® Rational® Application Developer, the Java Persistence API (JPA), Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), REST web services, and — for a rich Web 2.0 front end — the Dojo Toolkit. You'll end up with a fully functioning web application that displays data in a table that users can edit by double-clicking any cell.
Rapidly build a rich three-tier web app, Part 1: Build the database- The application architecture uses REST services to decouple the UI from the server, and it uses EJBs and JPA to provide a correctly tiered enterprise application. Some of these layers are unnecessary for the sample application, but the intent is to provide a well-architected example that can be scaled for a more challenging problem space. The high-level steps the tutorial follows are:
Rapidly build a rich three-tier web app, Part 2: Build the application tier- In part two of this three-part tutorial, learn how to use IBM Rational Application Developer and IBM Bluemix to rapidly build and host a multi-tier Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) app. Find out how you can save time in each stage: creating the data model and database, generating the data access code using the Java Persistence API (JPA), writing the Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) and web services, and using Dojo to create a rich web UI for viewing and modifying the data. When the application is complete, you'll deploy it to IBM Bluemix, the IBM Platform as a Service (PaaS).
Rapidly build a rich three-tier web app, Part 3: Create a rich web UI- In Part 1 you created a database on IBM Bluemix, connected to it from Rational Application Developer, and populated it with sample data. In Part 2, you created the application tier consisting of an EJB for managing the business logic and Java Persistence API (JPA) entities for interacting with the database. Here in Part 3 you'll expose the EJB methods as REST web services and build an editable Dojo data grid for viewing and modifying the data. Finally, you'll deploy the application to IBM Bluemix.

Ralph Schoon (Unleash The Labs, Leading Technical Sales Professional ) provides two great no-nonsense views into starting up with projects in IBM BlueMix on his external blog rsjazz.wordpress.com! With a deep expertise in the RTC / Jazz products, Ralph brings that skill into BlueMix and provides clear steps for using RTC and Eclipse to start developing Node.js applications for BlueMix.
Getting started with BlueMix - Ralph blogs about his experiences with BlueMix and provides some detailed information to help you get started as well: "Recently everyone has their heads in the clouds and I decided to have a peek to find out what it is all about. So I started looking into it. This post is a summary of my first experiences with the IBM BlueMix Cloud Computing offering and how I got started with developing my first applications for it..."
Using RTC to Work with DevOps Services and With Bluemix - Ralph blogs again with a deeper dive into BlueMix and Eclipse that builds upon the post above: "I recently had a look into Bluemix and how to use it with Eclipse to develop cloud applications. The blog post also mentions that there is an integration to DevOps Services that enables to use work items for planning. It also allows to use GIT or Jazz SCM to manage the source code. Recently I had a look into how that works and I would like to share here what I learned. This post assumes you have performed the first steps to setup your environment following the Getting started With Bluemix post already...."

In this 3-part series, Steven Wood (IBM Advisory Software Engineer) will show how to build an integration with Evernote. We start with the API and move on to building a standalone Node.js web application that allows users to browse their Evernote data. Then you will see how to adapt this web app into a DOORS Next Generation extension. I hope that this example will give you a taste of what can be achieved with DOORS Next client extensions and a sense of how easy it is to build and deploy your own extensions using Bluemix:
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 2- Rational DOORS Next Generation now lets you create client extensions. Extensions are complete web applications that run inside a dedicated area of the DOORS user interface, allowing users to embed custom web content. IBM Bluemix provides a powerful and easy-to-use platform for hosting web applications and extensions. In this tutorial, the second of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 3- This tutorial builds on Part 1 and Part 2. So far, we've built a simple web application that allows users to permit access to their Evernote accounts using OAuth and then displays their notebooks, lists notes in a notebook, and reads and displays note content. In this final part, we'll create a DOORS Next Generation Client extension with the application that will allow users to import their Evernote note content into DOORS requirements artifacts.
