In today's society, it's second nature to contact family, friends, and
colleagues via e-mail. E-mail has become so integral to our daily ritual that
we cannot stay away from it as we make use of personal digital assistants
(PDAs) and other pervasive devices to have it readily available. How do these
billions of digital messages get to users across the globe?
A client/server setup is required to participate in the exchange of e-mails.
It was just a few years ago that expensive server software packages were used
for the typical e-mail solution. Cheaper solutions have been plagued by a
lack of robustness and scalability. To the avail of shrinking corporate
budgets comes the Java Apache Mail Enterprise Server (known as Apache James).
Apache James is a free, open source, robust offering from the Apache Software
Foundation that aims to provide enterprises with a Java-based ... (more)
The phenomenon of globalization has unearthed a major question. With a huge
market of non-English speaking customers, how can we facilitate communication
to such a large subset of individuals without paying an arm and a leg for
translation? In this article, we'll introduce you to IBM WebSphere
Translation Server (WTS) for Multiplatforms v5.0. As you will see, WTS can
address the translation needs for an enterprise organization. This product
can deliver content to end users in their native languages. The delivery is
performed at a fraction of the cost of professional human transla... (more)
Having employees constantly connected to one's enterprise is vital to many
companies. This is one of the reasons Research in Motion's BlackBerry has
mustered a massive following (over three million users at the time of this
article's writing) in recent years. BlackBerry addiction has become pandemic.
In this article, you'll learn how to build, test, and deploy applications to
Blackberry devices using WebSphere Studio Developer.
WebSphere Studio Device Developer (hereafter called Device Developer)
provides you with an integrated development environment (IDE) in which you
can buil... (more)
By accessing the IBM WebSphere Application Server JNDI tree, WebSphere
Application Server Community Edition (IBM's free, lightweight J2EE
application server built on Apache Geronimo technology) can interact with and
reuse virtually any of the J2EE resources that are housed there.
It is not uncommon for enterprises to leverage different application server
flavors throughout their organization to accommodate a variety of business
objectives. A case in point might be a company that primarily runs IBM
WebSphere Application Server V6, but has a business need to run IBM's
cost-free We... (more)
The quest for increased application performance is a science in itself. IBM
WebSphere Application Server includes a powerful caching technology called
the dynamic cache service, which you can employ in your Web applications to
dramatically improve performance.
In this article, we'll use the dynamic cache service to increase the
performance of a simple Web application. We will then use Apache JMeter, an
open source load generator, to load-test our cached application in order to
measure the application performance gains achieved by leveraging the dynamic
As you wil... (more)
