Lotus Notes suffered in the browser wars, losing ground to open standards, Internet communication, and open databases. The program has rallied though, and remains a very popular groupware solution. If you're responsible, or would like to be responsible, for administering a Notes group or developing Notes applications, you'll benefit by earning one of IBM's Lotus Notes certifications. Lotus Notes Certification Exam Guide takes you through everything you can expect to see on the Lotus Notes Application Development I, Lotus Notes Application Development II, Lotus Notes System Administration I, and Lotus Notes System Administration II exams. In covering the @ functions, for example, this book explains each function's general syntax, then explai... Rest of this review on the detail page

Although Learning XML covers XML rather broadly, it nevertheless presents the key elements of the technology with enough detail to familiarize the reader with this crucial markup language. This guide is brief enough to tackle in a weekend. Author Erik T. Ray begins with an excellent summary of XML's history as an outgrowth of SGML and HTML. He outlines very clearly the elements of markup, demystifying concepts such as attributes, entities, and namespaces with numerous clear examples. To illustrate a real-world XML application, he gives the reader a look at a document written in DocBook--a publicly available XML document type for publishing technical writings--and explains the sections of the document step by step. A more simplified version ... Rest of this review on the detail page

This is the reference manual for the MacsBug Mac assembly language debugger, as well as a related utility for checking toolbox parameter passing, called Discipline. MacsBug will work on all 680XC family processors under MacOS and A/UX (with the exception of the Mac XL and those with 64K ROMs). This is for MacsBug version 6.2. The book is intended for an audience of developers, so it is interesting to note that the material starts at a very accessible, and even simplistic, level. Error handling and low level debugging are explained carefully, if not in great detail. A primer on assembly language is included. At the same time, readers are expected to be familiar enough with Mac internals so as to understand the significance of indivi... Rest of this review on the detail page

This is an introduction to quality enhancement methods and measurements. It is broadly based, but also gives depth to the discussion in many areas. Areas such as the definition of quality and statistical modelling, which may be new to software developers and managers, start from simple and clearly explained concepts. Chapters cover the definition of quality development and quality management models, measurement theory, software quality measures (metrics), quality identification tools, defect removal, the Rayleigh model and expectation of defects, exponential models for expectations, the use of Rayleigh and other models in management, complexity, and customer satisfaction measurement. There is very thorough bibliographic material at t... Rest of this review on the detail page
