Hi

A few more books had disappear. Disappear? How? IBM removed from the Redbooks site and I didn't have a backup of those books and I can not find it on the web anymore. (Not on the Wayback machine also)

Checking the EDM/2 the following OS/2 related RedBooks and links are no longer available:

1)SG24-5245-00
VisualAge for Java Enterprise Version 2 Team Support - Sep 1998
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/SG245245.html
I found a draft from March 1998, but I'm trying to find the one from Sep 1998.



2) SG24-5265-00
VisualAge for Java Enterprise Version 2: Data Access Beans - Servlets - CICS Connector
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/SG245265.html


If you find other Redbook from the "IBM OS/2 Warp Development Related Redbooks" wiki page that does not have a PDF/Download/View link, please write me back.

Regards

Hi

I still have the naive dream of some day completing this page with all the downloadable content of IBM OS/2 Courseware and change all the "x" to "checks".
https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/IBM_OS/2_Courseware#Communication_Courseware

If you have or find any of this content, please let me know. Remember that I ask IBM for formal permission, but I need to find the content  first.

Regards

Hi

I had also completed the formality to have IBM's republishing permission for:

IBM Solution Developer Support (IBM External Submission #29315):

    How to convert from 2.1 base video into 3.0 base video in order to take advantage of the monitor configuration feature of the 3.0 system icon
    Device Drivers for OS/2 2.x are compatible with OS/2 Warp V3 and do not require additional modifications.
    Driver Development Support Center's (DDSC) Cyber DUDE
    GRADD FAQ
    OS/2 keyboard translate table design
    Developing NDIS LAN device drivers FAQ
    How do I get started writing OS/2 device drivers
    OS/2 OO Books: A Roadmap
    Video Playback - No Audio Bug
    Some Watcom Compiler Tips from DUDE Users

DDK (IBM External Submission #29315):

    Introduction to DASD, SCSI and CD-ROM Programming Interfases
    Developer Guide for OS/2 for SMP Version 2.11
    OS/2 Resource Manager Architecture (1994)
    Device Driver FAQ
    OS/2 Hardware Compatibility List 1995
    OS/2 & LAN Systems Development Tools Guide
    New XGA Display Driver Entry Points
    New VGA Display Driver Entry Points
    Developer Connection DDK Transitional Questions and Answers
    NDIS Implementation Information for IBM LAN Systems - OS/2 Messaging and National Language Support
    INSTALLABLE FILE SYSTEMS FOR OS/2 VERSION 2.0
    Sample Code Chunks, From a Device Driver

Links to the material on this EDM/2 wiki page.

And also "The OS/2 Development Tools Guide - Spring 1993 (G326-0326-00)" (Permission #29210 )

I'm still looking for more IBM material (like couseware) to ask permission and make it public for everyone to read.
The work on EDM/2 is still going on, and moving forward to try to have all OS/2 development material consolidated there.

Regards

Hi

Just as a curious note, on this document ("IBM and Microsoft Software Newsletter. Statement of  Direction" / page 47) I found some other OS/2 education courses that IBM used to provide on 1989.

So, I included those on the IBM Courseware Wiki page, hopefully if someone find some of this, we can scan it and I can request IBM permission to republish it for all of us.

Regards

Hi again.

I still don't loose the faith to find the educations material  of the  IBM Courseware Wiki page, but for the moment I'm trying to find this documentation to ask IBM republishing permission:

-  SC26-4582-00: Common User Access: Advanced Interface Design Guide
-  SC26-4583-00: Common User Access: Basic Interface Design Guide (F29BDG00)
-  SC34-4289-00: Common User Access: Guide to User Interface Design
-  SC34-4290-00: Common User Access: Advanced Interface Design Reference
SC34-4399-00: Object-Oriented Interface Design (F29AL000)
-  IBM Corp.: Object-Oriented Interface Design: IBM Common User Access Guidelines - ISBN 1-56529-170-0

SC26-4583-00 and SC34-4399-00 used to be available online, but IBM took the bookmgr shelve site down. Wayback machine does not had those complete :_(

Hi Martin, very good work! My father used to obsessed with IBM documentations so if you are missing any other important documents I may take a look for you. He's keeping all of this stuff in his property in Cyprus so just PM me the ones you need and as soon as I go there I will check them for you.

Hi

Robert, I sent you an e-mail. If you find any material of this thread, please let me know and work out to ask permission and put it online.

I was able to find again SC26-4583-00 and SC34-4399-00. Both are linked in .BOO format. I'm asking for permission to republish those just in case.  Here are the links again: http://www.edm2.com/index.php/CUA

Hi Martin,
on Oct 22, 2017 you were looking for hard copies of Personal Systems Magazine.  Did you ever find those?  I have 9 random issues of that magazine from 1990, '91, '92, '93.  Also 2 issues of Personal Software from '94 and '95.

Hi Gordon, thanks.

I had found some magazine issues that are hosted on the Internet Archive:
- Personal Systems Magazine
- IBM Personal Software Magazine

There are some missing on the list, the ones that do not have links.

Can you please let me know which issues do you have, and check which one we don't have already digitized and online?
After that we can think what to do next.

Regards

OK, if I'm reading this right you already have all the Personal Systems mags I have.

I have two issues of Personal Software that don't seem to have links: 
Issue I, 1994
Issue 2, 1995
