Hello --
I have a couple years experience working with Java. I've used JBuilder and Visual Cafe in the past, and most recently did everything from vi. I am now at a client which uses Websphere Studio Advanced v 3.5 and VisualAge for Java Enterprise version 3.5.3, with a Websphere app server. Since I am not familiar with these tools, I'm hoping you can help. I am trying to use the Websphere Test Environment (WTE) in VAJ and it is not succeeding. I am developing a site that I plan to use JSPs. For a prototype I just used dummy data and made all the pages as html pages. Here are my problems:
1) I have noticed if you change the name of the file in Studio it wipes out both the original file and the new file with the new name. I need to convert these html files into jsp files. I'd prefer to do the least amount of work (no copying code from html and pasting into a jsp page). Is it possible to just change the file extension on these files and then modify the code?
2) in WTE, I created a jsp. I thought in order to see it in WTE that I'd need to send the file to VAJ. I couldn't figure out how to send the file to VAJ -- is this possible? Since I had no luck here, I found that if I right-clicked on the file, I see a Preview with IE button. I tried this, and it takes me to IE at http://localhost:8080/theme/Login.jsp, which displays an error page:
Error 404
An error has occured while processing request:http://localhost:8080/theme/Login.jsp
Message: [jsp] reported an error
I thought that maybe I had some bad code in my jsp, so I tried the same thing with an html file which I verified was valid. Again, I received the same error:
Error 404
An error has occured while processing request:http://localhost:8080/theme/Loggedin.html
Message: File not found: //theme/Loggedin.html
What am I doing wrong or what should I try in order to get WTE to work from within Studio?? I'd like to do use Studio and VAJ together because they sound like a powerful combination. I'd really appreciate any tips on how I can get Studio and VAJ to work together like they're supposed to.
I'm full of tinier men! And a tiny ad:
