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.

Use dynamic required attributes to gather relevant data from users when a change request is entered, transitioned, or modified, outside of the Lifecycle Editor in Rational Change. This article also explains how the end user is affected by dynamic required attributes.

Use Rational Quality Manager to modularize test scripts
Using a sample scenario in a fictitious JKE banking application, this article shows how to develop keywords and workflows for the banking application.Keywords in Rational Quality Manager make it possible for you to modularize test scripts. A collection of keywords becomes a domain-specific framework you can use to put together high-level scenario flows. Keywords, if defined at the beginning of the project, form a domain-specific framework that makes it possible to focus on writing scenario flows to be tested, without having to worry about duplicating test steps .

Support for ISO C11 added to IBM XL C/C++ compilers
The new ISO C programming language standard provides several features to aid in programming productivity, debugging, and performance. IBM XL compilers are phasing in support for the new C standard so that you can take advantage of useful features, such as those that support complex type object initialization, static assertions, and function attributes for functions that do not return. These are now a part of the XL compilers for easier debugging and improved performance.

Improve the quality of your unit testing by integrating eclEmma and Rational Team Concert
This article describes how to set up eclEmma and IBM Rational Team Concert so that you can automatically check your code coverage when code is delivered to a stream. The delivery can then be prevented if the coverage is not sufficient. This process makes it possible for teams to ensure that their unit tests are being effective and that they have high levels of coverage. It also helps teams with existing code to incrementally improve the coverage and quality of the code.

Use IBM Rational Test Workbench 8.5.1 for localized testing
For a test that is recorded on a mobile device, the test script is generated in the default language of the application. Sometimes however, the language defined for the device running the test is different from the language of the test script. Learn how to localize strings in a test script and use IBM Rational Test Workbench to run a recorded test in the default language of the mobile device that is running the test.

Virtualize multiple behaviors in parallel with Rational Test Virtualization Server
This article helps users of IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server to configure their test environment to have multiple variants of a stub running simultaneously. These variants make it possible to run multiple test cases in parallel where there are multiple instances of the system under test available. Variants also make it possible for two components of a composite system to receive different responses from the same service interface.

Set up a Jazz Build Engine to run an Ant script: Part 2. Setup build scripts to perform preview build
Learn how to set up an IBM Rational Team Concert main build that performs an IBM Rational Developer for System z code review. Based on the result of the code review, the process either submits the build to compile, or stops and reports the code review errors. Apply the tested, documented sample described in this article to implement a similar solution on your own platform. The steps focus on the Rational Team Concert administrator who writes an Ant task to compile COBOL programs, depending on other previous tasks, such as quality control. Part 2 introduces the Ant-based build script, build.xml, that defines tasks for the build to run.

Memory management in Rational DOORS
This article shows how to use DXL APIs to effectively manage memory when you use DXL scripts in DOORS. With these APIs, you can monitor the memory used by DOORS. You can take action when the memory used by DOORS reaches the maximum threshold level. The APIs help to avoid loss of data due to an abrupt stop of the application.
