Description

VisualAge Generator is IBM's VisualAge offering focused on bringing productivity to organizations. It is a powerful, integrated development workbench used by programmers to fully define, test, build, and deploy traditional as well as Web-ready enterprise level systems on a variety of platforms in record time.

With VisualAge Generator, applications are defined from a productive desktop environment, using easy to learn, powerful, high level specifications that are completely independent from the target run-time environment and hide the complexity of the system software infrastructure (transactional and DBMS APIs, Web server complexity, and communications protocols).

A powerful simulation and test environment enables the programmer to fully test the system without ever compiling or deploying to the final target system. This environment, built and integrated into the development workbench, allows rapid iteration between specification and verification. Once the application is fully verified, a code generation facility can be invoked to transform the high level environment-neutral specifications into native 3GL source code (Java, C++, or COBOL) optimized for the selected execution systems for compilation and deployment in production.

The solution combines the best of both worlds — all the productivity of an iterative desktop development environment with the scalability and the performance of a compiled and optimized 3GL production application.

To fully understand the power of VisualAge Generator, the rest of this description will review the following primary design points of this technology:

  • Provide the highest possible level of programmer productivity
  • Fulfill the demands of an enterprise environment
  • Enable rapid deployment of Web-enabled e-business solutions

Programmer Productivity

To address the first primary design point of programmer productivity, VisualAge Generator has been equipped with four core facilities:

  • Data model driven automatic code generation

    Industry research has shown the majority of the code written to implement business applications has nothing to do with the business problem, but it is necessary to establish the "mechanical" infrastructure of the system providing functions such as handling error conditions, and keeping track of positioning within an array of data.

    Using the VisualAge Generator Templates facility, developers can have the application infrastructure (framework) generated automatically by the system, reducing the coding requirements up to 80%* and allowing the creation of a fully functional database manipulation application in a matter of minutes.

    *
    This estimate is based on current customer results. Your experience may vary depending on the amount of layout customization and specific business logic code required.

    Programmers will build the bulk of their application by simply defining instances of the template's Information Model . This consists of choosing the data to be manipulated (tables, views, and columns), and selecting how it will be displayed. This set of intuitive, and seemingly simple specifications, allows VisualAge Generator Templates to generate automatically surprisingly comprehensive application code to:

    • Access and manipulate database (Create, Read, Update, Delete)
    • Present the data to the end user in different ways (Java or traditional GUI, JSP, or TUI)
    • Manage navigation among multiple windows and session state
    • Manage multiuser data access concurrency
    • Manage paging when data result set is larger than page size
    • Manage error conditions
    • Provide window and field level online help

    Once this application framework is generated, developers simply add the business logic using the standard VisualAge Generator specification facilities to complete the creation of the system.

  • Visual construction from components

    VisualAge Generator includes IBM's award winning visual, component-based construction architecture. This facility is much more than a User Interface (UI) layout builder. Programmers can build their own components and make them available for reuse, or they can take advantage of prebuilt, pretested components licensed by IBM or third parties, visually assembling them to meet their system specifications.

    Hundreds of reusable components are already available, and with the growth in popularity of JavaBean and Enterprise Java Bean component models, thousands more should become available, allowing IT shops to implement a "Buy and Integrate" application development strategy instead of the traditional "develop from scratch" approach.

  • High-level specification facility

    VisualAge Generator provides a simple and yet powerful specification language. This language includes a set of high-level and polymorphic constructs, such as I/O verbs, Unit of Work (UOW) management verbs, and Remote Procedure Call (RPC), and hides the complexity of the underlying target execution environment. The programmer, therefore, can focus on the business problem rather than on writing to complex APIs.

    An example of the power of the abstraction level of such specifications is the Web Transaction Rapid Development facility. Using a logical data structure definition and simple logical verbs, such as CONVERSE, traditional programmers can build and test without the need to learn and master complex Web technologies such as Java servlets and JSP components, fully functional multitiered e-business systems.

    Another example of the power of the abstraction level is the MQSeries rapid application development facility. Using simple and terse "sequential file" metaphors and a few high level verbs to read and write to message queues, saves large amounts of low level coding when implementing message-based business integration systems.

    Beyond the abstraction provided in the language, VisualAge Generator includes many aides to make the programming environment even more productive. These include powerful utilities such as language sensitive editors, wizards, and graphical assistants. Each is fully integrated and designed to speed the programming effort and help to prevent or eliminate errors.

  • Interactive Test Facility (ITF) integrated with the development facilities

    The most powerful feature of the development workbench is the ITF. This facility is tightly integrated with the specification environment, allowing programmers to easily specify, animate, and verify the application without leaving the development environment. This rapid iteration between specification and verification frees the developers from costly generation/compilation and deployment steps, and facilitates an evolutionary prototyping development approach.

Fulfilling the Enterprise Requirements

An "enterprise class" application development solution must be capable of fulfilling the following key requirements:

  • Provide a robust development workbench that can scale up to large development teams

    VisualAge Generator is equipped with integrated repository services that facilitate software configuration management and version control. In addition, it is possible to transfer VisualAge Generator source specifications between the integrated repository and external SCM tools to be managed along with other application development artifacts participating in the enterprise-wide problem and change tracking and development process management.

  • Deliver systems that can scale up to the highest transactional throughputs

    VisualAge Generator generates COBOL, C++, or Java source that can be compiled and run under the control of TXSeries™, CICS/ESA®, and IMS/TM transaction managers. This native support of the most proven TP monitors in the industry provides the transactional scalability required by the most demanding business-critical systems.

  • Produce systems that can run on a wide variety of platforms

    The code generated by VisualAge Generator can run on a variety of client and server platforms, including Windows 95/98, Windows 2000, Windows NT, Solaris, OS/2, AIX, HP/UX, SCO OpenServer, OS/390®, OS/400®, and other 390 systems such as VSE and VM.

  • Ease business integration, access to legacy data, and integration with existing legacy systems

    VisualAge Generator systems can easily take advantage of message and queuing technology through the powerful MQSeries rapid application development facilities providing rapid construction of business integration solutions. VisualAge Generator systems can reuse existing legacy programs through a simple CALL API, and can also be invoked by hand-crafted existing COBOL or other 3GL programs. In addition, VisualAge Generator programs can access not only the most popular relational DBMS, DB2®/UDB family, Oracle, and others, but can easily manipulate legacy file systems, such as VSAM, and non-relational IBM databases, such as IMS/DB and DL/I. This allows easy integration of new applications into existing IT infrastructures maximizing the protection of the previous investments.

  • Deliver enterprise IT assets to the Web

    As explained in more detail in a separate section of this description, VisualAge Generator provides the capability to develop end-to-end multitiered systems with Java servlet/JSP component dynamic HTML front-ends, transparently connected to transactional servers running on any of the supported server platforms and transactional systems mentioned earlier in this paper.

  • Be usable by traditionally skilled programmers

    Although VisualAge Generator in tightly integrated with a pure Object Oriented (OO) programming environment (Java or Smalltalk), the programmer can exploit these technologies without the need to learn OO programming, and simply use the procedural specifications. The power of the underlying OO technology, however, can be gradually unleashed as the developer becomes more familiar with the component architecture and begins to explore and exploit the additional facilities.

Delivering e-business Solutions

Developing e-business solutions is quickly becoming the next strategic direction as companies see the potential for cost saving, better customer service, and streamlined business processes. This will be possible only if the enormous value of the existing IT assets can be easily brought into a Web-centric world. But the Web is an unforgiving new market, where your competitor is just one click away. Building self-serve systems that do not provide adequate response and availability can be more damaging than not entering the market at all.

IBM is leveraging its experience in delivering highly available, scalable, and secure systems to equip this new world with the correct infrastructure and tools. The result is a set of products and architectures that will support the creation and deployment of end-to-end multitiered e-business systems. If we think of an e-business system as a logical three-tier solution, IBM WebSphere Application Server provides the run-time environment for tier-2, WebSphere Studio provides the tools for Web-site management and page composition, and the VisualAge products allow professional programmers to rapidly create transactional data servers and business logic. In this context, VisualAge Generator plays a central role for the development of new third-tier transactional servers, which must provide high performance and transaction volumes, and reach a variety of legacy platforms and data, automatically generating the code necessary to use their services in a servlet/JSP component dynamic HTML context. This is possible today through three facilities.

  • Web Transaction Rapid Application Development

    The Web Transaction rapid application development facility is an innovative and simple methodology that allows traditionally skilled programmers to develop, test, and deploy multitiered Web systems without having to deal with the complexities of tier-2, such as designing and developing servlets and JSP components that manage and contain data provided by tier-3 servers (mapping data between Java objects and flat data structures, understanding API for host connectivity, and so forth), and manage sessions and state. Using this approach, developers can specify their system at a logical level, and let VisualAge generate both tier-2 (Java and JSP component) and tier-3 (C++ or COBOL) code that implements those specifications.

  • Integration with VisualAge for Java

    The VisualAge Generator Developer workbench is seamlessly integrated with the award winning VisualAge for Java workbench to provide the most powerful e-business Integrated Development Environment (IDE) in the industry. Programmers can:

    • Develop and test Java clients (applications, applets, or servlets) using either Java or 4GL specifications, or a mix of both
    • Easily exchange data content between Java variables and VAGen data items
    • Cross invoke business logic implemented in the two languages
    • Animate both source definitions in a seamless interactive debugging environment

    Tier-3 server logic, specified in 4GL, can be defined and tested together and seamlessly with the client prior to the generation of C++ or COBOL for the target run time. A full, end-to-end, multitiered, Java-to-any-server solution can easily be developed, rapidly and without necessarily having to learn deep Java skills, in a iterative and dynamic environment that does not require lengthy run-time software setup.

  • Generation of Java Bean and Enterprise Java Bean Components

    This facility allows you to generate automatically, from VisualAge Generator server programs specifications, Java Bean and Enterprise JavaBean (EJB) components that can be used within any Java program (applet, application, or servlet) to connect to and exchange data with a VisualAge Generator server program. Generation of the EJB component makes it possible to reach tier-3 VisualAge Generator programs within an EJS (Enterprise Server for Java) run-time environment, such as that provided by WebSphere Application Server Enterprise Edition. The generated bean and the gateway program perform automatically all the data marshaling and conversion necessary to map Java to traditional back-end transactions.
