Usability

Administrative procedures improve usability while maintaining a rich and flexible set of selectable configurations and prerequisites for tailored, open, and complete solutions.

WebSphere Application Server

WebSphere Application Server V3.5 Advanced Edition for AS/400 maintains the functions of the previous version, including:

  • Rich e-business application deployment environment with a comprehensive set of application services for transaction management, security, clustering, performance, availability, connectivity, and scalability
  • Leading-edge implementations of the most up-to-date Java-based technologies and APIs
  • Comprehensive connectivity support for interacting with relational databases, object databases, transaction processing systems, MQ-enabled applications, and hierarchical databases
  • Migration path to a more scalable and transactional environment from WebSphere Standard Edition for a complete Java-based Web application platform
  • Focus on medium- to high-level transactional environments used in conjunction with dynamic Web content generation and Web-initiated transactions
  • Performance and scaling attributes that support bean-managed and container-managed persistence for entity beans and session beans with transaction management and monitoring
  • Container management and persistent storage within a transactional environment for servlets and Enterprise JavaBean components
  • Rich XML parsing and configuration environment
  • Tivoli®-ready modules that can be managed by Tivoli-based tools
