The IBM Software Development Kit for PowerLinux provides you with four different development modes. The server development package allows you to use the IBM SDK for PowerLinux directly on the Power Systems server. With the IBM SDK for PowerLinux client for remote development package, you can start the IBM SDK for PowerLinux x86_64 client on a personal computer and use it to connect to a remote Power Systems server that has the IBM SDK for PowerLinux server-side agent installed to build, execute, debug, and analyze programs remotely. The client for remote development package also provides the IBM Advance Toolchain for PowerLinux cross compiler that can be used to develop and build your application for PowerLinux locally in the x86_64 machine.
