"The AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications is designed to build
Linux applications that can take advantage of AIX's full range of
capabilities. It also gives users more flexibility in deploying a
mix of AIX and Linux applications for e-business solutions running
natively under either AIX or Linux."
"What this does is offer a familiar Linux development
environment to developers available under AIX, to do the full range
of application development and recompilation,'' said Tilak
Agerwala, vice president of AIX marketing and product management in
"Once developed and deployed, the Linux-based applications are
treated as native AIX applications, meaning they can access the
same scalability and performance that the 64-bit operating system
doles out to AIX applications, according to Agerwala."
