Simplifying Application Development for a Heterogeneous Environment

require multiple point tools, runtimes, separate development staff and duplicate, or worse, different processes–creating a lot of redundancy and support overhead, not to mention extra licensing costs,” Sabbah says. IBM also offers solutions that leverage EGL, an open business language for building new multiplatform applications or migrating older applications that are built on dated languages (with often expensive proprietary tools) to a modern Eclipse-based development environment. Sabbah says EGL speeds development and deployment of applications and services to most distributed and enterprise platforms–boosting productivity and skills flexibility. The bank could also leverage the optimized compilers for the zEnterprise System, which exploit new hardware instructions to realize increased application performance and throughput.

From Development to Delivery
Rational tooling can also simplify the delivery of these new services and applications across the various zEnterprise environments, as shown in Figure 2 (page 36). Cont inuing w it h t he bank example, without visibility into these applications and their supporting infrastructure, it would be a daunting task to effectively deliver and manage mission-critical business applications and

services. “This problem becomes even more acute with the accelerating rate of change in today’s application infrastructure,” he says. IBM service-management offerings feature Rational products for automating the build cycle during the development and test phases and Tivoli* technologies for careful software deployment onto production services, system and application monitoring and performance management. Specifically, Rational Software Architect’s Deployment Planning tooling can be used to build and maintain an accurate model of the target runtime environment for the application elements—including comparison of dependencies and capabilities among the multiple pieces of computing infrastructure—which will be used to host the multiple application elements. Sabbah says this information can be used to make appropriate changes to the computing infrastructure and to support the requirements of the multiplatform application when it’s deployed into the computing infrastructure. To publish and share best practices for application deployment, Rational Asset Manager can be used to maintain a set of deployment topologies. These topologies are usually tailored to the organization’s computing infrastructure and can be used across development and system-management teams to collaborate on capabilities and dependencies, he says.
