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.

Turn Software Stacks into VM Images [23744]
You Can Now Leverage Oracle VM VirtualBox for Development

How do you like your stacks? With Java, database or SOA/BPM? All (and more soon) are available, according to a posting on the Oracle Technology Network by Justin Kestelyn, who writes that is now possible to turn software stacks into VM images that can then be run as a pre-built VM in VirtualBox. What's more, Kestelyn adds, this desktop virtualization tool is absolutely free.

Solaris Studio and Solaris 11 Express [23692]
Guaranteed Binary Compatibility with Studio + Solaris

Yet more from LISA10, this time a 28:11 video from Vijay Tatkar's blog that covers a discussion Tatkar and Don Kretsch had with OTN's Rick Ramsey on Solaris Studio. A significant part of the discussion centered on the unique Application Binary Compatibility Guarantee to be found in Studio + Solaris. Tatkar writes that " ... binaries built on several previous releases of Solaris (from Solaris 2.6 and up) and with Studio compilers, will continue to run on newer versions of Solaris," without, he adds, the introduction of incompatibilities.
