Can anyone please provide information if Eclipse IDE can be used for deployment of an application on WAS 4. Currently the mentioned application is developed using WSAD v 5. Is there any documents or reference which might help in integrating Eclipse with WAS 4. The application makes use of few ibm jar files like com.ibm.mq.jar, ibm_data_access_beans-7.0.13.jar. Are these compatible with Eclipse IDE


Regards,
Chaitra Prabhu

Actually, a bigger problem is probably going to be WAS 4. If I'm not mistaken, WAS currently is at version 7, and I don't think IBM supports anything earlier that WAS 6.

Eclipse is perfectly happy to help you develop apps for any J2EE server you want. As far as deploying and controlling them, I can't say. I normally don't use Eclipse for that part of the process.

I agree with Tim. You are on a really old version of WebSphere that hasn't been supported in many years.

Eclipse can be compatible with anything. You'll need to get the jars from an actual WebSphere install though. And they may have errors in them since you won't be using IBM's JDK.

For deploying, you would be creating an ear file anyway. Eclipse doesn't need to be your deployment tool. Make sure you are compiling with an old Java target though. I believe WAS 4 was Java 1.3.
