Tools for high-efficiency Linux development in enterprise environments.
Linux developers have access to an extraordinary array of GNU and open source tools. Now, two leading Linux developers show how to choose the best tools for your specific needs, and integrate them into a complete development environment that maximizes your effectiveness in any project—no matter how large or complex. This book's example-rich coverage includes:
The Linux software development process: research, requirements, coding, debugging, deployment, maintenance, and beyond
Choosing and implementing editors, compilers, assemblers, debuggers, version control systems, utilities, and more
Using Linux Standard Base (LSB) to deliver applications that run reliably on a wide range of Linux systems
Comparing Java development options for Linux platforms
Using Linux in cross-platform and embedded development environments
Whatever your environment, The Linux Development Platform will help you find, choose, configure, and maintain the right tools—and use them to deliver outstanding Linux software.
The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the open source software you need to build and customize your own Linux development environment.
