Achieving high performance for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) applications
This article provides a detailed analysis about the new Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) built-in functions provided by IBM XL compilers. It explores the code that the compilers generate to demonstrate the performance gained by using the built-in functions. This is critical for high-performance AES applications, especially when many of them cannot be parallelized due to the nature of operation modes, such as chaining mode [for example, cipher block chaining (CBC) and propagating cipher block chaining (PCBC)] or feedback mode [cipher feedback (CFB) and output feedback (OFB)]. If you are a software engineer who is interested in achieving high performance for applications on IBM POWER8 processors, this article is for you.

When your app crashes, you want to know absolutely everything!
If software engineering was like civil engineering, then mobile apps would be as rock solid as the average modern bridge. However, software engineering is a very different discipline - and a much younger one - than civil engineering. We have best practices and design patterns to help us write excellent software, but it is almost impossible to guarantee a piece of software will never crash. This is an even bigger challenge in today's mobile apps which, thanks to very short release cycles, do not enjoy as much quality assurance as do other kinds of software. In this article, you will understand how the automated crash reporting feature of IBM Mobile Quality Assurance can make your mobile app as strong as a bridge.

Select a strategic toolset
Many organizations choose tools to automate aspects of the development and delivery process, based on a tactical, project-specific, need. This approach to tool selection is fraught with business challenges, such as the cost to maintain a disparate toolset; and technical challenges, such as the lack of integration between tools acquired in different parts of the organization. This article describes five key characteristics to consider when selecting a strategic toolset.

Rational Application Developer enhancements for WebSphere Optimized Local Adapters present new opportunities for end to end EIS integration
Enhancements to IBM Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software V9.0.1 added new capabilities for application integration between disparate enterprise environments, such as those made up of IBM WebSphere Application Server, CICS, IMS, and batch processing on z/OS, and environments that contain SAP, Oracle, Seibel, and other IBM WebSphere Adapter-supported enterprise information systems. Support for optimized local adapters is now included in Rational Application Developer, offering optimized bi-directional calling between WebSphere Application Server for z/OS and external address space applications on the same z/OS system. Combining optimized local adapters with the WebSphere Adapters support presents many new opportunities for real time interactions between applications and environments that were too complex to realistically handle in the past. This article presents one such scenario, in which a CICS application uses optimized local adapters and WebSphere Application Server for z/OS to communicate with applications running on SAP servers.

An introduction to service mapping: Integrating evolving web services in WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5
SOAs and web services evolve over time — new versions of services are deployed or brand new services must be integrated with existing clients. Typically, development effort must be expended to ensure that web service clients continue to work with the web service providers. IBM WebSphere Application Server V8.5.5 and IBM Rational Application Developer V9.0 introduce service mapping, a feature that enables you to remove the dependence of the service client on both the location and interface of the service provider via the interception, routing, and transformation of requests and responses between service clients and service providers. This article explains the concepts of service mapping and provides a working example, showing how multiple versions of a service provider can be called by the original service client via the development and use of service mapping technologies.

Stubs made easier with Rational Integration Tester
Integration testing can be challenging because although all components of an application must be tested not all components are necessarily available. With IBM Rational Integration Tester, a component of IBM Rational Test Workbench, you can create code-free, reusable, maintainable stubs, so testing can continue even if some components are missing. In addition, Rational Integration Tester provides comprehensive functional, regression, load, and integration testing to help reduce test cycle times and move integration testing earlier in the development lifecycle.
