    Description

    WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 is a cost-effective, easily approachable "on-ramp" to e-business. It offers fast and productive development, deployment, and management of dynamic Web sites. Designed for the first steps of e-business, WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 handles the creation of database application, allowing simple information updates, and basic Web-enabling packaged applications.

    Integrated Offering for New e-business Projects

    WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 combines the functions you need to get started in e-business into one integrated package. It includes a simplified configuration of WebSphere Application Server V5.0 and Eclipse technology-based development tools from WebSphere Studio. To meet your specific requirements, WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 offers the flexibility of a single installation, if installing both components on the same hardware, or a custom installation, if you want to install the development tools and application server components on separate machines.

    Simplified Application Server

    This subset of WebSphere Application Server V5 runs without change on the other configurations of WebSphere Application Server V5.

    Built from a J2EE 1.3-compatible base, WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 supports the latest Java standards:

    • XML tools, including Xerces and Xalan

    • Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)

    • JNDI

    WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 also includes JavaScript and Database Connection Pooling.

    The integrated design means that you can use the same familiar development tool interface for your administrative tasks including configuring a server instance, configuring an application, publishing an application to the server, and stopping and restarting the server or application. Wherever possible, you can use default settings so that configuration is not required.

    Powerful Development Tools

    WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 offers a robust, easy-to-use Eclipse technology-based development environment that allows developers to create, build, and maintain dynamic Web sites, applications, and Web services. The development tools offer the same development capabilities as WebSphere Studio Site Developer with the exception that they are restricted to deployment to WebSphere Application Server - Express.

    • Rapid Web design and authoring tooling, including HTML, JSP, and JavaScript

    • Visual Page Designer to create Web user interfaces

    • Struts builder to simplify creation of applications

    • Wizards to create Web interfaces to databases

    • Image editing and animation tools

    • Web services creation and consumption

    • Rich media tools to create graphic titles, logos, buttons, and photo frames with professional-looking touches with WebArt Designer

    • JSP debugging

    • Interface to version control systems

    • Simple deployment of applications to the application server

    Refer to Programming Announcement letter ZP02-0577 dated December 03, 2002 for more information about the development environment capabilities.

    Eclipse technology-based tools give developers freedom of choice in a multilanguage, multiplatform, multivendor supported environment. Developers who want the flexibility to choose the best technology can use tools built using open source code consistent with open standards.

    Easy to Install and Use

    WebSphere Application Server - Express, V5.0 is easy to use from end to end.

    Ease-of-use features include:

    • Fast and simple installation: An installation wizard walks you through five steps.

    • Code generation: Wizards, samples, and application templates help write or provide the code for you whenever possible.

    • Simplified development: A choice of programming models takes advantage of your existing skills. To offer a model that more closely parallels HTML and VisualBasic programming skills, Jakarta Tag Libraries are included and JavaScript support is enhanced.

    • Productive development: The development tool includes a list of valid alternatives for completing the current line of code to speed the development process.

    • Rapid application design: The Struts Builder offers a high-level view of an application, allowing you to map out the pages and actions within an application before writing any code.

    • Simplified testing: Automatic creation of the test server and dynamic debugging allows for easy verification that your applications will run correctly. The debugger enables you to detect and diagnose errors in your program running either locally or remotely. You control the execution of your program by setting breakpoints, suspending execution, stepping through your code, and examining the contents of variables. You can debug live server-side code as well as programs running locally on your workstation.

    • Simplified deployment: Assembling and deploying your application takes as little as one click.

    • Simplified administration:

      • Creating and configuring server instances

      • Configuring data sources and ports

      • Starting and stopping the server

      • Publishing an application to the server

      • Stopping and restarting the application

      Wherever possible, you can use the default settings so configuration is not required.

    • Additional ease of use features such as hover help, context sensitive help, dynamic tag help, error assistance and extensive documentation.

    Helpful Wizards

    Wizards walk you through the process of creating a new file. Each page of the wizard indicates the content and entries necessary to be entered and then the wizard generates the code for you based on your entries. Over 70 wizards are included.

    Quick Start Samples

    Samples can be used as an educational guide, a code repository, or a starting point for applications. The samples demonstrate a variety of development techniques from basic Model 1 design to the more scalable Model 2 (Model View Controller) method. Each sample comes with extensive documentation on how to use and customize the sample.

    • Custom home page - Features an employee-based home page with links to existing Web-based resources. Each employee can easily access current company information via subwindows, and can add or delete links or subwindows.

    • Customer self-service - Features a company Web site that permits customers to log in to a private, SSL-protected user account with an associated list of activity by that customer.

    • Document management - Features a password-protected site that allows users to log in and have read-only access to numerous documents.

    Usage Restriction

    Yes Applications developed with WebSphere Application Server - Express may only be deployed to a WebSphere Application Server - Express Remote (e.g. production as opposed to unit test environment) Server.

    The license to WebSphere Application Server - Express entitles you to use the Program under one or more of the following options, as specified in your Proof of Entitlement:

    Processor License Option: The Processor License Option authorizes you to provide applications on Internet, Intranet, or Extranet websites and may be installed on up to 4 processors on the same server. This option includes one developer license

    Intranet User License Option: The Intranet User License Option authorizes you to provide applications on Intranet websites only. For each Proof of Entitlement, under this option, you are authorized to have up to 20 Intranet users accessing the Remote Server. This license may be installed on one Operating System, on one server with up to 4 processors. This option includes one developer license.

    Developer License Option: The Developer License Option authorizes you to provide applications on Internet, Intranet, or Extranet websites, for unit test purposes only, meaning for testing by the developer of the application only. You would need to acquire a Proof of Entitlement from any one of the other options available for Program, to provide applications on the Internet, Intranet, or Extranet websites, or system test, with more than just the developer of the application doing the testing, or for production use.

    For all of the options above, you are allowed to install and use the development tools on a HOME/PORTABLE Computer. This means, it may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that it is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You are not allowed to do this with the Remote Server included in the program.
