You don't need to debug Java applications on just your local desktop. Learn how to spread around your debugging using different connection types that make up remote debugging. This article explains the features and examples that show how to set up remote application debugging.

The Eclipse Plug-in for Generating and Executing Test Cases for Database Objects enables users to automatically generate JUnit or SQLUnit test cases for database objects. By using defined code templates and parameter templates, the repetitive effort of handling the objects is significantly reduced. This tool contains a friendly user interface for test case generation, execution, and test result verification.

To build an available Linux server environment with IBM blades, first you need to set up a fault-tolerant environment between the blade and any external storage. This enables you to deliver redundancy and enable multipathing. In this article, learn how to integrate an x86-based IBM BladeCenter server and external IBM BladeCenter Boot Disk System SAS storage, as a critical prerequisite for a reliable Linux/blade server environment.

Guice is Google's open source dependency injection framework for Java development. It enables better testing and modularity by taking away the pain of writing your own factories. This article offers a tour of the most important Guice concepts that will leave you ready to Guice up your applications.

Many sophisticated machine learning algorithms cannot process large amounts of data on a single node, but Parallel Machine Learning Toolbox (PML) can do so by distributing the computations. This distribution speeds up computations and expedites training by weeks, days, or even hours in an easy, reliable way. PML can run on a wide array of architectures including single-node, small clusters, grids, and BlueGene.

This collection of how-to guides, demos, and articles will help you sharpen your skills around the range of implementation technologies needed during all phases of application development cycle.

Every day people rely on search engines to find specific content in the many terabytes of data that exist on the Internet, but have you ever wondered how this search is actually performed? One approach is Apache's Hadoop, which is a software framework that enables distributed manipulation of vast amounts of data. This article introduces the Hadoop framework and shows you why it's one of the most important Linux-based distributed computing frameworks.

Apart from its use as a powerful Web application development platform, in combination with the Rails framework Ruby is also a powerful scripting language. It has immense capabilities, owing to the availability of many built-in and external libraries, the power of which can be harnessed to solve a great deal of the scripting needs that surface in typical systems administrative work environments.

Context-Sensitive Spelling Checker (csSpell) is a spelling checker that examines words and their context to detect potential misspellings instead of using a spelling dictionary. csSpell can scan plain text files; files that contain non-text elements such as SGML, HTML, or XML tags; and even files that contain program code.
