Customers wishing to upgrade to unrestricted usage of either may do so. For more information refer to Software Announcement A99-1227, dated September 21, 1999.

Performance and Scalability

This version improves performance and scalability across the deployment environment by including:

  • Load balancing
  • Application partitioning
  • Workload management

Enterprise JavaBeans components enhance and add "container" deployment environment services for Servlets and EJB and Java Server Page (JSP) components. The improved transaction management has intelligence on the type of applications being executed and can deploy and execute across multiple applications and components accordingly, optimized for object management and performance.

Transaction Management

WebSphere's EJB server monitors and controls containers used within the server. Implemented are:

  • Enhanced Java transaction service support within the EJB server
  • Better interoperability
  • A major rewrite of the deployment environment

The two "engines", one for deploying Servlets and JavaBeans components and the other for deploying EJB components, are now merged into a single, robust server engine that provides improved:

  • Control
  • Performance
  • Flexibility
  • Serviceability

Persistent storage for transactional EJB components now includes support for Oracle which can be swapped in and used with or instead of the DB2 Universal Database server that is distributed as part of WebSphere Application Server Advanced Edition.

Deployment Management

The administrative client which helps easily deploy and manage Servlets and EJB, JSP and JavaBean components has been completely overhauled to focus on ease-of-use and greater flexibility and control in the execution and monitoring of these e-business applications.

Protocol and Application Adapter Support

Enhanced protocol and API support is integral to:

  • Dynamic content access
  • Generation
  • Presentation applications deployment

Integration of an enhanced Java-based Object Request Broker within the EJB server enhances:

  • Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (IIOP) support
  • True Remote Method Invocation (RMI) over IIOP support for improved object-oriented connections to:
    • CORBA-compliant objects
    • ORBs
    • Applications

Enhanced Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API support, included with WebSphere's Connection Manager component, supports more flexible and robust connectivity to remote relational database systems.

Security Management

Security controls and application access protection are significantly enhanced with V3. The secure access control lists can be established at a much more granular level than in the past. In addition to setting up security at the user and group levels, control and policies can be established for specific calls or methods within the applications themselves. Greater depth of control and protection is available within the server deployment environments. Related to management is the ability to leverage user information being held in directories. WebSphere Application Server V3.0, Advanced Edition now has first-class support for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)-based user registries including:

  • Lotus Domino
  • IBM SecureWay Directory Server
  • Netscape Directory Server

Site Analysis

A package of site usage and analysis tools is included with V3. Site analysis focuses on developing basic traffic measurement functions while allowing you to gauge traffic volume (hits, visits), to identify traffic sources (domains, subdomains, referrers) and to manage site integrity (link verification, site conformance). You can enhance and improve the Web site content and performance, making Web sites more:

  • Enticing
  • Informative
  • Financially beneficial

The new server can transform raw server log data into valuable information which is stored in the provided UDB DB2 database. The client provides administrative, visualizing and report generating functions. From the client, you can schedule analysis tasks to run at specific time and/or time intervals, as well as schedule generating and publishing of the results as static or dynamic HTML reports. The progress status is broadcasted to the interested clients and displayed as appropriate. After analysis, you can generate customized reports or view the data. immediately through the client. The system comes with many predefined ready-to-use report samples. General features include:

  • Detailed analysis of Web site content integrity, site performance, and usage statistics
  • Flexible client/server architecture supporting a team environment
  • A database used to provide scaleability and trending with historical data
  • Fully-customizable configuration to suit end-user environment
  • Remote administration and report capabilities via the client

In addition to the significant enhancements described above as part of V3, WebSphere Application Server contains the following features as part of its Web deployment environment:

  • Full support for Java across multiple operating platforms
  • Easy-to-use application deployment management and control support for dynamic Web content generation, including usage of Java Servlets, JSP and JavaBean components within a common runtime environment
  • A function-rich IBM HTTP server (based on technology from the Apache HTTP Server) with additional security enhancements, performance enhancements and machine translation features.
  • Services and support via both bean-managed and container-managed transaction persistence
  • Server capability for applications built to the Enterprise JavaBeans specification providing transaction management and monitoring
  • Tivoli-ready modules that can be managed by Tivoli-based tools
  • Enhanced administration for application deployment and server administration
  • XML Document Structure Services which enable e-business applications that interchange data via XML (eXtended Markup Language) to parse, generate, manipulate, and validate XML and XSL-based content
  • "On the fly" language translation of Web Pages from English into Simplified and Traditional Chinese and German
