IBM has published the following 10 technical articles, tutorials, and downloads, on its DeveloperWorks and AlphaWorks websites. They cover a range of interesting (though not necessarily embedded) technical topics. Some require free registration. Enjoy . . .

  • WebSphere Studio Device Developer for Linux

    IBM is offering a free download of the WebSphere Studio Device Developer for Linux. It provides an end-to-end solution connecting cellular phones, PDAs, and other pervasive devices to e-business. It Contains a production-ready Java Powered runtime environment, tested and certified to meet the following Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) specifications: CLDC, MIDP, CDC, and Foundation profile.

  • Creating Kparts componets for KDE

    Here are a couple of tutorials that shows developers how to use KParts components in a KDE application. In Creating Kparts componets Part 1 you will get an intro to the core KParts concepts of read-only and read-write parts and network transparency. You'll learn how to create a read-only component, and then modify it to be a read-write component. You'll also learn how to deploy the component so that Konqueror can use it. In Part 2 you will learn how to use the KDE Trader to locate the appropriate component, how to handle user interface merging, and how to embed multiple parts in the same window with the help of the Part Manager.

  • Solution Enabler

    Solution Enabler is a framework for creating and deploying solutions locally or to remote machines with different operating systems. The framework helps to simplify the creation and deployment of software solutions by capturing detailed knowledge of a solution package deployed through a common installer. A prime objective of Solution Enabler is to effectively encode information about configuration and customization into a solution package, thus minimizing the need for detailed knowledge of the solution components during deployment.

  • LPI certification 102 Part 2: Configuring and compiling the kernel

    Welcome to Configuring and compiling the Linux kernel, the second of four tutorials designed to prepare you for the Linux Professional Institute's 102 exam. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to compile the Linux kernel from sources. Along the way, we'll cover various important kernel configuration options and provide more in-depth information about PCI and USB support in the kernel.

  • LPI certification 102 (release 2) Part 3: Networking

    Welcome to Networking, the third of four tutorials designed to prepare you for the Linux Professional Institute's 102 exam. In this tutorial, we'll introduce you to TCP/IP and Ethernet Linux networking fundamentals, show you how to use the inetd and xinetd superservers, share important tips for securing your Linux systems, and show you how to set up and use a Linux print server.

  • Introduction to XML

    This newly revised tutorial discusses what XML is, why it was developed, and how it's shaping the future of electronic commerce. It also covers a variety of important XML programming interfaces and standards, and ends with two case studies showing how companies are using XML to solve business problems.

  • Start Here to learn about Grid computing

    Grid computing represents a big step in the world of computing. The technology is still fairly nascent, but here at the developerWorks Grid computing zone, we're publishing a steady stream of new articles, tutorials, resources, and tools. Many visitors interested in Grid computing are asking some very basic questions: What do we do with all of this stuff? Where do we start? How do the pieces fit together? What comes next? This page provides an overview for readers who want to learn about Grid computing but don't know where to start. It places the basics of Grid computing into their proper context and ties together relevant developerWorks articles, tutorials, and tips. It places information about Grid computing into an intuitive framework, tying the pieces together, and highlighting what's important.

  • Network programming with the Twisted framework, Part 4

    In this final installment of his series on Twisted, the author looks at specialized protocols and servers contained in the Twisted package, with a focus on secure connections. One thing the servers and clients in Parts 1, 2, and 3 had in common is that they operated completely in the clear, cryptographically speaking. Sometimes, however, you want to keep your connection free from prying eyes (or from tampering/spoofing).

  • Authenticating Linux users with IBM Directory Server

    This article describes how to use the IBM Directory Server to authenticate Linux users. The author explains step-by-step how to configure Directory Server, and Linux, to build a basic configuration to use Directory Server to authenticate Linux users.

  • Tivoli Redbooks Collection CD

    The Tivoli Developer Domain is offering a free Tivoli Redbook CD, a collection of 146 technical publications. The publications include actual experiences, sample code, typical scenarios. Topics covered can help you manage the security, storage and performance of your IT system with focus on TCP/IP, Linux, WebSphere, DB2 and Enterprise Storage.
