JDK 7 Support in NetBeans IDE 7.0: A Quick Overview [24041]
Tutorial Shows How NetBeans Can Help in Writing Code Compatible with JDK 7 Language Spec

One of the most valuable features of NetBeans IDE 7.0 is its ability to automatically fix syntax, which it does -- along with much more -- when users enable support for such JDK 7 language features as diamond operator, string in switch, and multicatch. With these features enabled, NetBeans 7.0 can assist users to write code that is compatible with the JDK 7 language specification. In the blog from NetBeans.org entitled "JDK 7 Support in NetBeans IDE 7.0: A Quick Overview" readers will find a tutorial that shows step-by-step how to enable JDK 7 support in the IDE and illustrates how the IDE handles new language constructs.

Video: 'How to Build Better Applications with Oracle Solaris DTrace' [23986]
Jim Mauro and Brendan Gregg Talk from Oracle OpenWorld

In a two-part, roughly hour-long Oracle Solaris Video, Brendan Gregg, Principal Software Engineer, and Jim Mauro, Senior Principal Software Engineer, discuss "How to Build Better Applications with Oracle Solaris DTrace." The presenters cover the same material in a downloadable pdf slide presentation that approaches the subject from four aspects: What is DTrace?; Using DTrace; Application Analysis; and USDT Probes. Concluding supplemental example slides include code for Which ZFS file?; Running zfs.d; Measuring ZFS file write latency; Time-based user-mode profile; and User stack trace for mutex_trylock () call.

Discover and Uncover [23934]
Two Helpful Features Now Available in Oracle Studio Solaris 12.2

Oracle Solaris Studio 12.2 introduces two new features: Discover, which detects memory leaks, and Uncover, which measures code coverage in an application. These features are explained in brief in the "Compile My Code" blog. Discover, the post maintains, identifies the exact place where a memory-related problem exists in the source code, along with other capabilities. Uncover's ability to identify which areas of code are exercises in testing and which are not allows users to tailor test suites to test more of the code under scrutiny.

'Multicore Application Programming' [23929]
An Interview with the Author, Darryl Gove

Darryl Gove, author of "Multicore Application Programming" talks with InformIT writer Jim Mauro about programming with threads and concurrency, as well as the current state of multi-threaded application software, and the effectiveness of automatic parallelization technology. Gove concludes his comments with the observation that, "Multicore processors are a great opportunity for developers. They have placed parallel application development at a much more accessible price point than multiprocessor systems. The are also a more forgiving platform than multiprocessor systems." And, he notes, this is just the beginning of the exciting discovery of what can be done with multiple threads.

Overview of Oracle Solaris Studio Compilers & Tools [23918]
Get to Know the Components and Features

The "Compile My Code blog" contains a link to a pdf that provides an overview of Oracle Solaris Studio Compilers and Tools. Oracle Solaris Studio is the solution that provides everything required to develop C, C++, and Fortran applications to run in Oracle Solaris 10 on SPARC or x86 and x64 platforms, or in Oracle Linux on x86 and x64 platforms. The compilers and tools in Oracle Solaris Studio are engineered to make applications run optimally on Oracle Sun systems. The blog notes that Oracle Solaris Studio tools are designed to leverage the capabilities of multicore CPUs including the Sun SPARC T3, UltraSPARC T2, and UltraSPARC T2 Plus processors, and the Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors. The tools allow users to more easily create parallel and concurrent software applications for these platforms.
