UAG customizations can be very intense and deeply technical, but what everyone wants is for everything to look its best, right? The fact is, a large portion of UAG customers perform at least some adjustments to the appearance, even if it is just changing the title of the portal page. Look and feel customizations are considered to be rather well documented, as opposed to some of the more advanced stuff you will see later on in the book, but the purpose of this chapter is not to repeat that official documentation. We will be guiding you through the actual process, of course, but also suggesting some creative thoughts to get the message across in ways that you may have never thought of.
In this article by Erez Ben-Ari and Rainier Amara , the authors of Mastering Microsoft Forefront UAG 2010 Customization,the following topics will be covered:
- Visual customization overview
- Customizing the login and admin pages

A man with the most powerful tools in hand is unarmed without the knowledge of their usage. Eclipse, GCC, Ant, Bash, Shell, Linux—any new Android programmer needs to deal with this technologic ecosystem. Depending on your background, some of these names may sound familiar to your ears. Indeed, that is a real strength; Android is based on open source bricks which have matured for years. Theses bricks are cemented by the Android Development Kits (SDK and NDK) and their set of new tools: Android Debug Bridge (ADB), Android Asset Packaging Tool (AAPT), Activity Manager (AM), ndk-build, and so on. So, since our development environment is set up, we can now get our hands dirty and start manipulating all these utilities to create, compile, and deploy projects which include native code.
In this article by Sylvain Ratabouil, author of Android NDK Beginner’s Guide we are going to do the following:
- Compile and deploy official sample applications from the Android NDK with Ant build tool and native code compiler ndk-build
- Learn in more detail about ADB, the Android Debug Bridge, to control a development device
- Discover additional tools like AM to manage activities and AAPT to package applications
- Create our first own hybrid multi-language project using Eclipse
- Interface Java to C/C++ through Java Native Interfaces (in short JNI)
By the end of this article, you should know how to start up a new Android native project on your own.Read Creating, Compiling, and Deploying Native Projects from the Android NDK in full
In this article wirtten by Marc Delisle, author of Mastering phpMyAdmin 3.4 for Effective MySQL Management, we will discus how a system administrator can use the phpMyAdmin server-management features for day-to-day user account maintenance, server verification, and server protection. The subject of how non-administrators can obtain server information from phpMyAdmin is also covered.
Server administration is mostly done via the Server view, which is accessed via the menu tabs available on phpMyAdmin's home page.Read Administrating the MySQL Server in full
In this article by David Overton, author of Microsoft Windows Intune 2.0: Quickstart Administration, we will examine the real-time nature of PC management as we explore the alerts that Windows Intune raises which require action on our part, exploring how we both monitor and respond to them.
We can have configure computers to minimize situations where alerts will be raised through good practices of updates, firewall, and anti-malware management. However, problems will still arise with users' computers, whether this is a request for assistance, a computer that will not boot, or some other warning picked up by Windows Intune. These need to be categorized and responded to in a timely manner. Some can be closed and filed depending on circumstances, while others require a visit to the computer itself with other tools to further diagnose and resolve.
In this article, we will discuss this in the following sections:
- General Windows Intune alerts
- Malware alerts
- Remote Assistance alerts

Devices such as the iPhone are also location-aware; its GPS receiver is able to determine its position anywhere in the world. Movement can be tracked, the current speed can be obtained, and even the direction the device is facing can be determined. In addition to mapping, location services are finding their way into all kinds of areas ranging from photography to messaging clients.
In this article written by Christopher Caleb, author of Flash iOS Apps Cookbook, we will cover the following recipes:

The MVC model helps us separate the business logic from the display and data. Now, we can build an application on Force.com . For an effective application, having correct data is as important as having efficient business logic. Force.com is suitable for data-driven and process-driven applications, hence the data operations are massive. Force.com provides us with some really nice and efficient tools to manage, manipulate, and clean massive data per iteration.
In this article by Siddhesh Kabe, author of Force.com Developer Certification Handbook (DEV 401), we will learn:
- How to import data using the data loader
- The standard data management operations
