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

  • Embedded SQL Programming — This tutorial introduces you to embedded SQL programming and walks you through the basic steps of constructing an embedded SQL application. The tutorial also introduces you to the process used to convert one or more high-level programming language source code files containing embedded SQL into an executable application. This is the third in a series of seven tutorials that you can use to help prepare for the DB2 UDB V8.1 Family Application Development Certification (Exam 703).
  • Considerations of globalization solutions in J2ME — This article explores a solution for globalization applications in Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME). It describes this solution throughout the software development life cycle, including requirements analysis, design, implementation, testing, and deployment. You'll learn why globalization is important in J2ME applications, the guidelines for developing a globalization application, and how to implement these guidelines throughout the development cycle.
  • Tune Eclipse's startup performance with the Runtime Spy, Part 2 — This article describes how to find common programming mistakes that may lead to poor startup time and how to correct them. Included is a case study demonstrating how the Runtime Spy was used to improve the startup performance of IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer. The previous article, Part 1, introduces the Runtime Spy.
  • Model-driven development with the Eclipse — The Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) is an open source framework for developing model-driven applications. It creates Java code for graphically editing, manipulating, reading, and serializing data based on a model specified in XML Schema, UML, or annotated Java. This article will step you through the process of creating a model, generating code, using the generated applications, and customizing the editor.
  • Next-generation grids focus on app integration — The beauty of the grid is that it can draw on a wide range of heterogeneous hardware devices and operating systems. But what does it take to integrate and manage your applications across all these resources? This article explores the emerging tools and technologies that are making it work.
  • Six Strategies for Grid Application Enablement — This article, first in a technical series, defines six strategies for grid application enablement. It explains the characteristics of applications suitable for these strategies and the benefits to the organization that runs the application with that strategy.
  • The importance of being stateful — Any time you work with HTTP, you're esssentially working with a stateless protocol. You send in a request, you get back a response. The server doesn't know if a particular request is the first, twentieth, or five millionth request you've made. It certainly doesn't know if a particular request is somewhere in the middle of a long series of requests, all of which need to be handled in order. WS-Resource Framework proposes a different approach to get an update on IBM clustering technology, the industry and what customers are doing with clusters take a look at this interview with Dave Turek, Vice President, IBM's Deep Computing.
