Hi All, I have developed some Servlets and JSP's using Tomcat Servlet Engine 5.0.16. I'm using Eclipse 3.0M IDE. Want to move on and learn more about the Bean world . Since I'm using Eclipse thinking of using Websphere Express for Bean development. My doubts 1) Does Websphere have built in Http Server or should I add Apache ? 2) Any detailed documentation online for the integration of Tomcat, Websphere and Apache (if needed)? Please advice. My head is spinning afte going through a lot of sites. Millions of suggestions. Would like to go systematic from ground so need the advise of all of you guys. Thanks in advance. PK
WAS usually comes with the IBM HTTP Server which is IBMs product wrapped around apache. When you say bean development I assume you are refering to EJBs. I do not think WAS express supports EJBs. Think you will need base edition for this. As far as integration to WAS from Tomcat just create a .ear file and install it. With eclipse I use the MyEclipse plug in for j2ee development at home and it does plently of cool stuff. At work I am using WSAD. Either way, .ear files are easy to create and then you just use the admin console or command line script to install the application. If you do not know how to create your stuff for WAS deployment you can use the AAT to migrate everything. Watch out what you are running as Tomcat will probably be using a more up to date java and j2ee versions that WAS. WAS is at 1.3 on both. Hope this helps.
