Synopses & Reviews
WSAD is a new generation server-side Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that targets development of the Java enterprise applications. From the moment of its introduction, WSAD became very popular and won several important awards in the past years. WSAD is tightly integrated with the WebSphere Application Server 4.0 (WAS) - the runtime environment, where the WSAD-developed applications run. This tight integration between the development and the runtime environments is very important for seamless future application deployment.
By being tightly integrated with WebSphere Application Server, the new tool has an important advantage over the older IBM's Java development tool - Visual Age for Java, which (in its latest release 4.0) still restricts development and testing to the obsolete release of WebSphere Application Server 3.5 (with necessary future conversion to WebSphere Application Server 4.0). In fact, according to IBM, Visual Age for Java 4.0 is the last supported release for this tool and it will be discontinued soon. WSAD is now considered an official tool for WebSphere-based J2EE development.
WebSphere Application Server (WAS) has become a dominant Java Application Server environment, controlling about 35% of the Java Application Server market. Thus, WSAD, as an official development tool for WebSphere Application Server, should be in great demand by the J2EE development community.
This title covers the latest release of the IBMUs J2EE 1.3 development tool, WebSphere Studio Application Developer (WSAD 5.0), providing a practical, step-by-step approach on how to use WSAD 5.0 for developing J2EE 1.3 distributed applications.
Covers integration of WSAD with WebSphere MQ (MQSeries), which allows the enterprise application to connect to a legacy datacritical information for any enterprise developer and not available elsewhere Teaches development of JMS Point-to-Point and Publish/Subscribe applications Provides in-depth discussion of pattern development, and includes tips and best practices
WebSphere Studio Application Developer 5.0: Practical J2EE Development covers the latest release of the IBM's J2EE 1.3 development tool, WebSphere Studio Application Developer (WSAD 5.0). The book provides a practical, step-by-step approach on how to use WSAD 5.0 for developing J2EE 1.3 distributed applications. Expert author Igor Livshin walks you through the detailed development process of working examples of J2EE 1.3 applications, including their deployment on the WebSphere Application Server (WAS 5.0).
