Hi Kyle, Does the book cover the deployment process as well? I've found sometimes that just because the application runs fine locally under WSAD it doesn't mean that it will run fine once deployed.

We cover it a bit, but that's not really the focus of the book. The focus of this book is on architecting, designing and developing solutions for WebSphere -- there is another book by Roland Barcia on deployment that is coming down the pike in the next few months...

Here's a redbook for the WAS V5 Management and Configuration including Deployment:

hi Kyle,
i am quite a greenhorn to the WebSphere world. i have heard that deploying in WAS becomes easy if the applications are developed in the Visual Age tool. have you touched anything regarding this in the book. Folks, ne help where i can get some documentation regarding the use of Visual Age?
Thanks and regards,
Prasen

Hi Prasenjit,

I do think deploying J2EE application via WebSphere is much more easier than that in VisualAge times, because the deployment in WSAD is quite powerful and nearly automated (if everything is well-configured).
I have started working with a J2EE project using WebSphere. At 1st, there are lots of problems because we feel that the GUI is very complicated, and many views can be used for the same purposes.
However, I do recommend that testing the applications using the Universial Testing Client, because it can simulate the test cases.
Nick.

hi Nick,
Actually in my last project I had used WAS. but what we did there - we developed the JSPs in JDeveloper of Oracle and then deployed the JSPs in WAS. god knows why we had done that, coz i didnt now nething about websphere then. but i was told that Oracle Jdev IDE was particularly very helpful in deploying the application Oracle App Server. So i was wondering whether there is an IDE which facilitate the development and deployment of J2EE appliactions in WAS and somebody had suggested Visual Age.
cheers,
Prasen

Hi Pransnjit,

So far as I know, the IDE VisualAge for Java (VAJ) project should be closed. The last version that I know is 3.x. After that, IBM released a new IDE, WebSphere Studio Application Developer (WSAD) to replace VAJ.
Thus, I dont think it is not easy to find VAJ on the market. So far, I feel no problems in using WSAD in the aspect of CVS, development, deployment and testing.
Nick.

Thanks a lot Nick. I'll try to have a look into the WSAD.
