Creating a high availability setup for Linux on Power
This article is about high availability or disaster recovery and fail-over for Linux on Power virtual machines (VMs) or logical partitions (LPARs). The solution works for all Linux distributions available for IBM POWER8 and later processor-based servers. Open source software used in this solution are: DRBD and heartbeat, which are available for all supported distributions. We have used Ubuntu v16.04, supported on IBM Power servers to explain and verify the solution.

Monitor network bandwidth usage and analyze network traffic in the IBM AIX server using ProbeVue
This article helps users to monitor network bandwidth and analyze network traffic in an IBM AIX server using ProbeVue. This provides users with a near real time view of what is happening in their network for a user-specified time interval or when a user specified event occurs. This takes very less time to diagnose certain network issues compared to traditional tools such as IPTRACE and TCPDUMP. This is because ProbeVue provides only the data requested by the user instead of providing the entire data, which requires a lot of time to analyze and diagnose a specific problem.

DB2 Advanced Copy Services: The scripted interface, Part 4: Implementation for DB2 ACS
IBM DB2 Advanced Copy Services (DB2 ACS) supports taking snapshots for backup purposes in DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows databases. You can use the DB2 ACS API through libraries implemented by your storage hardware vendors, or you can implement this API yourself. As of IBM DB2 10.5, a feature called Scripted Interface for DB2 Advanced Copy Services was introduced. It allows you to implement shell scripts instead of C libraries. These scripts can use the tools provided by the storage vendors to run the snapshot operations. The scripted interface can be used independently from your storage hardware. Additionally, DB2 supports storage hardware as soon as it becomes available. The feature supports all three architectures of DB2: enterprise server, multi-partitioned database using the database partitioning feature (DPF), and databases using pureScale. And it's supported on all UNIX and Linux platforms on which DB2 is certified. Part 4 of this "DB2 Advanced Copy Services: The scripted interface" series demonstrates the usage of the scripted interface together with IBM System Storage and IBM Storage Manager. The DB2 database in this example is used by an SAP NetWeaver system.

Automatically update a web page with dynamic elements
You may know how to hide and display optional JavaServer Faces (JSF) components by using JavaScript and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in standard JSF components. To do this, you would first need to identify all JSF components and write them into JSF pages. But, that is impossible to do when you are developing a Web page that contains dynamic elements that are unknown until run time. With this article, learn how you can clear old UI components while automatically updating the dynamic elements of a Web page, as well as how to use Java code to add new elements and put them into their proper spot on a Web page. You'll also learn how to bind different event handlers to different dynamic elements of a Web page, how to register a listener listening to changes of server-side data to invoke a page refresh, and how to use Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) techniques to refresh only the dynamic parts of the Web page.

Validating CSRF vulnerabilities reported by automated scanners
This tutorial covers how to manually validate cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities that can be reported by an automated security scanner, such as IBM AppScan. Most automated scanners, including IBM AppScan, do not accurately report CSRF vulnerabilities, as they are built on predefined rules and cannot completely determine the legitimacy of certain types of vulnerabilities like CSRF. To validate such issues, one needs to manually reproduce the vulnerability and decide whether it is indeed true or a false alarm. This tutorial is a step-by-step guide to reproduce and validate the reported CSRF vulnerabilities by using a custom-made flow chart and also provides guidance on using the open source tool "CSRF Tester" that provides a rich functionality to validate such vulnerabilities.

Java programming dynamics, Part 5: Transforming classes on-the-fly
After a short hiatus, Dennis Sosnoski is back with Part 5 of his Java programming dynamics series. Prveiously, you've seen how to write a program that transforms Java class files to change code behavior. In this installment, Dennis shows you how to combine transformation with the actual loading of classes using the Javassist framework, for flexible "just-in-time" aspect-oriented feature handling. This approach lets you decide what you want to change at runtime, and potentially make different modifications each time you run a program. Along the way you'll also get a deeper look at the general issues of classloading into the JVM.
