HTML. However concerning with the actual term, Comet is different to Ajax's meaning outside IT circles as a household cleaner. But sudden name or not, Comet serves the purpose of an umbrella name for delivering data onto browsers as it becomes available on the serverside, a technique that will surely be of the same impact and go hand in hand with what we know today as Ajax.

MyEclipse Blue Edition: Low-Cost Tool Alternative for WebSphere

Genuitec announced the new release of a product, MyEclipse Blue Edition that targets IBM’s Rational Application Developer (RAD) and WebSphere development.

With ending support to WebSphere Application Developer (WSAD), all WebSphere users necessitates to upgrade their toolsuites to IBM RAD so that they can support the latest features in the WebSphere 6.1 server that is a transition having high cost in terms of time and hard
currency. Since many of these IBM shops are necessarily requiring changing their too

App Performance Management Scenario:

Changing Java Developer’s Role Developers are spending most of their time in maintaining existing applications, instead of actually developing new features. This changes the scenario of development that tends to be a
little more workmanlike than we'd like to admit sometimes.


This is not the new task as most of the developers rarely admit the new development, even in the new projects; new features are created as if they were being built in maintenance mode instead of being made out of whole cloth.

A lot of tools exist to impose the specific problems therefore most of the application management lifecycle are spending their time in finding specific problems.

Two processes avoid most of the maintenance work while the SSQ article mentions only one of them.

The first maintenance obstacle is testing – The whole application can be tested, as the application failures are the larger aspect of application maintenance.

The other maintenance obstacle is performance – performance is managed in a better way by assuming it as an attribute of the code throughout development, rather than deploying and testing the application and finding out after "completion" that it doesn't meet its performance requirements.

Agile development helps by forcing for more tests throughout the entire lifecycle; using Java application servers helps in isolating the performance issues as they provide a central node for monitoring, While there are many of the performance tools available for Java leverage the application server and its APIs in just this
fashion, by monitoring the boundaries between APIs.
