The [System] Developer's Edge: 322 page pdf [24858]
Darryl Gove's Book Back in Circulation Once Again

"The System Developer's Edge: Selected Blog Posts and Articles" is available now as a pdf, reports Darryl Gove. The pdf differs from the earlier book in only two significant ways, Gove writes, the first being an absence of cover art and the second being a change in the title to include the word "system," indicating a focus on the hardware end of the stack. Some of the links in the pdf are no longer current, Gove cautions, just as a number of the products discussed may have been rebranded or come to end of life under Oracle.

Three-fold Focus in Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Beta Program [24422]
Improvements in Performance, Reliability, Developer Productivity

In its beta release of Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 the focus is on enhancements to performance, reliability and developer productivity, Oracle announces. In the area of accelerating performance, improvements, compiler and library optimizations for the newest Oracle Sun Enterprise Servers; acceleration of SPARC-based systems (incl. SPARC T4) that speed up application performance up to 3x over gcc, with up to a 40% boost over Sun Studio 12; and improvements in application performance of up to 1.5x over gcc and up to 20% faster than Sun Studio 12 for x-86-based systems figure prominently. Application observability has been improved by adding a new code analyzer that identifies common coding and memory access errors and by enabling application concurrency graphs and multi-process application profiling. Enhancements in the area of developer productivity include the capability of remote access from a Windows desktop in development of Oracle Solaris applications; the inclusion of Oracle Pro*C & OCI/OCCI Database development in Solaris Studio IDE; updated support for key open source runtime libraries, including BOOST and Apache C++; and the ability to build applications up to 20% faster than Studio 12.2 and up to 20% reduction in debug information size.

Oracle Secure Global Desktop Delivers Access to Development Environments [24218]
Oracle's Developers Worldwide Have the Access Required for their Work

As the Oracle white paper "Distributed Development Using Oracle Secure Global Desktop" explains, the Oracle Product Development IT Group (Oracle PDIT) employs Oracle Secure Global Desktop as a gateway to development environments used by Oracle’s software development teams working worldwide on Oracle Fusion, Oracle E-Business Suite, and various other Oracle applications. These software developers use Oracle Secure Global Desktop to access X Windows applications (xterm, fvwm, gnome) running on Solaris OS or Linux servers in the data center, giving them access to various graphical development tools such as Oracle JDeveloper, as well as systems running Microsoft Windows. Oracle PDIT has thousands of concurrent users spread across multiple Oracle Secure Global Desktop arrays around the globe. By this means, Oracle is able to provide its software development teams the access they require to their specific developer environments from any location, reliably and without performance degradation. In addition, administrators can centrally administer access to individual developer environments across multiple locations worldwide.
