Learn About Portability

As more and more developers develop applications for Linux, a lot of questions about portability and application certification are raised: how can I build the most portable application for Linux? Is certification to the Linux Standard Base right for my application? How do I get started on the right path for me?

In this section, you will learn the answers to these questions and more, as you step through the process of creating a better Linux application.

  • LSB Introduction is a document that will explain the Linux Standard Base--what it is, and what it isn't. You will see how certification can work for you application. And, should you wish to defer certification, you can learn about the benefits and methods of creating portable apps that work across many Linux distributions.
     
  • Strategies for Application Portability outlines the key differences in methods and outcomes when deciding your cross-distribution strategy. Portability is easier than ever to achieve with the LDN's new tools, and certifying your application to the LSB just got a lot easier, too.
     
  • Matrix of Distributions/Components is a complete list of current interfaces across a variety of Linux distributions.
