Partnering the PowerVM hypervisor with Power Virtualization Center (PowerVC), IBM's new enterprise virtualization management solution for Power Systems, is an assured way to bring tremendous value to your organization.

Written by Joe Cropper

IBM Power Systems have always provided huge "bang for the buck" through industry-leading hardware coupled with all of the features you would expect from an enterprise-grade hypervisor (i.e., PowerVM). Power Systems are generally managed via either the Integrated Virtualization Manager (IVM) or the Hardware Management Console (HMC). While both of these platform management solutions provide administrators with all the knobs and buttons to manage their systems (and will continue to do so), IBM recognizes the need for a simple, user-friendly solution that focuses on enterprise virtualization management to streamline your day-to-day virtualization management tasks and unleash the many strengths of IBM Power Systems. This is where PowerVC is called to duty!

TechTip: Impersonate Your Neighbor Using DB2 for i PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - Database

Learn how to override the current user profile handle with a different user profile in DB2.

Written by Michael Sansoterra

For most database-related applications, using adopted authority is the preferred way to temporarily grant users controlled access to sensitive data. But one limitation of the adopted authority model is that it doesn't override IFS permissions. A second limitation is that the adopted authority model doesn't allow an application to "impersonate" another user. To help with these issues, the DB2 for i statement SET SESSION AUTHORIZATION provides a way to overcome both of these limitations.

IBM is at it again, providing more new functionality with a Technology Refresh.

david shireyWritten by David Shirey

Yes, yes, it's true! The long-awaited, highly anticipated Technology Refresh 8 (TR8) to V7.1 has finally been released. Could I possibly be more excited?

RPG Academy: More on Procedures: The Dos and Don'ts and Other Interesting Things PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - RPG
Written by Rafael Victoria-Pereira   
Friday, 02 May 2014 00:00

The previous TechTip of this series introduced the concept of procedures, along with a simple example. This one will explain when you should (and shouldn't) create a procedure and reveal some pitfalls you need to avoid.

rafael victoria preiraWritten by Rafael Victória-Pereira

Let's start with a quick recap: procedures are "subroutines with parameters" that can exist outside the program that is calling them. For that to happen, the calling program needs to know how to use the procedure. This critical piece of information is supplied by a prototype definition (similar to the *Entry PList of a program). It's a good practice to use a separate source member to store the prototype definitions because they will be used in more than one program.

Java debuted in 1996—and while almost 20 years old, it's simply amazing how it continues to redefine itself and stay relevant. Still haven't tried it? No worries. Take a peek inside to see what Java can offer you!

Written by Joe Cropper
