ACE Data Recovery Provides Another Option to Consider Virtual Machine Recovery

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - July 05, 2013) -  We live in a virtualized world. Companies like VMware, Oracle, Microsoft, Citrix, and Red Hat are spreading their seeds of virtualization everywhere. While virtual machines are helping Fortune 1000 companies and SMBs manage their businesses like never before, they are also creating new challenges for IT when it comes to business continuity/disaster data recovery. So, who invented virtualization? If you answered VMware you aren't even close. It was Big Blue. Those of us who got their starts coding mainframe applications in the late 70s and early 80s typically dealt with three IBM OS environments: MVS, DOS, and VM. Originally called CP/CMS (Control Program/Cambridge Monitor System), VM was invented by IBM at their Cambridge Scientific Center near Boston and was basically "freeware" to IBM customers.

Java vs C++ "Shootout" Revisited

Keith Lea writes of the benchmark, on his results page, "I was sick of hearing people say Java was slow, when I know it's pretty fast, so I took the benchmark code for C++ and Java from the now outdated Great Computer Language Shootout and ran the tests myself." Lea used G++ (GCC) 3.3.1 20030930 (with glibc 2.3.2-98) for the C++, with the -O2 flag (for both i386 and i686). He compiled the Java code normally with the Sun Java 1.4.2_01 compiler, and ran it with the Sun 1.4.2_01 JVM. He ran the tests on Red Hat Linux 9 / Fedora Test1 with the 2.4.20-20.9 kernel on a T30 laptop. The laptop "has a Pentium 4 mobile chip, 512MB of memory, a sort of slow disk," he notes. The results he got were that Java is significantly faster than optimized C++ in many cases. "They also show that no one should ever run the client JVM when given the choice," Lea adds. ("Everyone has the c... (more)

Configuring Eclipse for Remote Debugging a WebLogic Java Application

A J2EE application deployed in the WebLogic server may be debugged in the Eclipse IDE with the remote debugger provided by Eclipse. Without a debugger the error message has to be obtained from the application server error log to debug the application. With the remote debugger provided by Eclipse, exception breakpoints may be added to the application file to debug. When an application is run in WebLogic and the application generates an error, the application gets suspended and the Eclipse IDE Debug perspective displays the error. In this tutorial we will debug a WebLogic Application Server application in Eclipse. To debug an application deployed in the WebLogic Server from Eclipse, start the WebLogic Server in debug mode and configure a remote debugging configuration in Eclipse. Next, connect the Eclipse remote debugger to the WebLogic Server and debug applications r... (more)
