Description

VisualAge for Java, Professional Edition

Java developers can use this integrated development environment (IDE) to build Java applications, servlets, applets, and JavaBeans components.

  • The Servlet SmartGuide generates servlets, JSP files, and prototype HTML. The JSP Execution Monitor lets developers monitor the execution of the generated servlet and resolve problems.
  • The External Version Control bridge allows code to be shared with SCCI-based source control management (SCM) systems.
  • Solution maps allow developers to load and unload subsets of projects, packages, and classes from the IDE (config maps).
  • The IDE provides many views/browsers, including full class source view, package, project, and class browsers. The IDE also provides formatting, management of resources, a powerful debugger, and code assist.
  • WebSphere Test Environment inside the IDE gives you the ability to test code without having to deploy to an external application server.
