Innovative uses for WebSphere sMash, Part 1: Building a flexible, practical dashboard framework
When new technologies emerge -- programming languages and models in particular -- there typically follows a period where many useful "how to" articles appear to help developers get themselves started. As time passes, the guidance works its way deeper into the more advanced concepts, but it is not often that the implementation details behind an actual application of the technology is revealed. "Hello World" examples are fine for basic lessons, but as you reach the point of wanting to build something yourself, there is nothing like a real example to help provide the inspiration for that next killer application project. This article series presents three actual examples where IBM WebSphere sMash was selected and used to perform innovative and valuable tasks. These examples are all related to the operations of IBM's Green Innovation Data Center (GIDC) in Southbury, CT, USA, which has been set up both as a client briefing center and a living lab, where some of IBM's latest energy efficient hardware, software, and operational practices are being tested and developed. In Part 1, you'll see how WebSphere sMash was used to build a flexible framework for constructing data center dashboards.

Innovations within reach: Are we ready for enterprise OSGi?
Over the past year, there have been many heated debates over the readiness or otherwise of OSGi for enterprise applications. OSGi is a proven and tested technology, so in that sense it's been "ready" for a long time. What has been missing are specifications and implementations of tools and frameworks that are required for Java EE programmers to properly utilise OSGi enterprise features. The recent release of the OSGi Service Platform Enterprise Specification (4.2) and the announcement of the IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 Feature Pack for OSGi Applications and Java Persistence API (JPA) 2.0 changes this. Here is an overview of this new feature pack and the reasoning behind its development.

Customizing with WebSphere CloudBurst, Part 4: Extending virtual images in WebSphere CloudBurst
As an IBM WebSphere CloudBurst user, you create patterns and deploy them into a private cloud. These patterns are complete representations of IBM WebSphere Application Server environments and can include many different parts, such as a deployment manager, custom node, administrative agent, and more. Each of these parts maps to a unique virtual machine, and that virtual machine is created from a virtual image. Specifically, the virtual machine is created from an IBM WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition virtual image, which contains the operating system, WebSphere Application Server, and IBM HTTP Server, all pre-installed, pre-configured, and pre-tuned. However, this image does not contain other customizations or content that might be required for your specific environment. This article describes how easy it is to customize the WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition virtual image to meet your application environment’s specific needs.

Customizing with WebSphere CloudBurst, Part 2: Using WebSphere CloudBurst to customize a WebSphere middleware environment
At the heart of the IBM WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance are IBM WebSphere Application Server patterns. These patterns are pre-built, hardened configurations that are best practice representations of WebSphere middleware environments that are ready to be deployed to a private cloud. However, these shipped patterns will not meet the needs of every deployment. For that reason the WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance provides pattern customization capabilities that enable you to produce your own highly customized WebSphere middleware environments. Part 2 of this article series discusses how WebSphere CloudBurst lets you build custom WebSphere Application Server patterns that represent your unique topologies and configurations.
