Many of you as (Java) programmers generate business purpose code, like "confirming an order" or "find available products". At times, you may also want to connect to external systems and services, since your application in isolation alone will not provide you the required functionality. When the number of such connections increases, you would be generating more and more of "integration code", mixed along with your business code.
In this short article, Binildas A. Christudas introduces the Java Business Integration (JBI) specification and discusses how it is covered in his new book, Service Oriented Java Business IntegrationRead Service Oriented Java Business Integration - What's & Why's in full

This article by Jayaram Krishnaswamy describes how you may connect to SQL Server 2008 and display the retrieved data in a GridView Control on a web page. Trying to establish a connection to the SQL Server 2008 is not possible in Visual Studio 2008 as you will see soon in the tutorial. One way to get around this, as shown in this tutorial, is to create an ODBC connection to the SQL Server and then using the ODBC connection to retrieve the data.
Visual Studio 2008 Version: 9.0.21022.8 RTM, Microsoft Windows XP Professional Media Center Edition, and SQL Server 'Katmai' were used for this tutorial.Read Creating a Web Page for Displaying Data from SQL Server 2008 in full

When talking about tunneling, different definitions come to people's minds. Basically, tunneling is transmitting data that is encapsulated into a pipe, over a public network (for example, the Internet). However, there are different methods to tunnel data over a public network for different approaches. For example, when security is a concern, tunnel protocols with cryptography are more favorable. But when performance has higher priority, protocols with lower packet overheads will be chosen. FreeBSD 7 has a built-in support for a number of important tunneling protocols, although there are also many third-party applications in FreeBSD packages that support more tunneling protocols.
This article by Babak Farrokhi, introduces the manipulation of tunnel interfaces in the FreeBSD 7 operating system. Let's have a look into the following:
