WebSphere Studio product suite is a comprehensive integrated set of tools for developing dynamic e-business applications that provides everything a developer needs from simple Web design to the most advanced Enterprise integration functions. Whatever your development skill-set or need is, the IBM WebSphere Studio suite can provide you with the tools you need to build your applications better and faster than before.
Application Developer Integration Edition contains a full version of WebSphere Studio Application Developer as well as providing first-class tool support for WebSphere Application Server Enterprise Edition including the WebSphere Application Server Enterprise Edition Unit Test Environment.
Application Developer Integration Edition is based on a number of open standards including JCA, J2EE, WSDL, XSD, and XSLT.
Application Developer Integration Edition provides an advanced Java development environment with the following capabilities:
Application Developer Integration Edition features full EJB 1.1 support, WAR/EAR deployment support, an updated EJB test client, and an enhanced unit test environment for J2EE.
You can create multiple projects with different unit test configurations and share the instances with other developers. Entity beans can be mapped to databases, and EJBs can be generated that tie into transaction processing systems. XML provides an extended format for deployment descriptors within EJB.
Application Developer Integration Edition provides the following leading-edge EJB development tools:
Relational Database Schemas, SQL Wizard, and SQL Query Builder
Application Developer Integration Edition allows you to create and manipulate the data design for your project in terms of relational database schemas. It lets you create, browse, or import database schemas. You can explore, import design, and query databases, working with either a local copy of an already deployed design, or creating an entirely new design to meet your requirements. The database tools provide a meta-data model that is used by all other tools that need relational database information. This includes connection information, so that tools that are unaware of each other can share connections.
The SQL wizard and SQL query builder provide a visual interface for creating and executing SQL statements. When you are satisfied with your statement, you can use the SQL to XML wizard to create an XML document, XSL, DTD, XSD, HTML files, and other related artifacts, then use the files to implement your query in other applications, for example, a servlet or JSP.
These database tools offer support for several databases, including DB2®, DB2 for 400, DB2 for 390, Oracle, Sybase, MySQL, Informix, and SQL Server.

Rational CCLT is also included with Application Developer. In addition, any Software Configuration Management (SCM) provider can create an adapter to integrate their SCM system to Application Developer.
Team Development Environment
The team development environment for Application Developer Integration Edition includes support for pluggable repositories and an optimistic concurrency model. The open support for external SCM repositories offers the following benefits:
In Application Developer Integration Edition, team developers do all of their work in their individual workbenches, and then periodically feed changes to a "team stream." This model allows individual developers to work on a team project, share their work with others as changes are made, and access the work of other developers as the project evolves. At any time, developers can update their workbenches by retrieving the changes that have been made to the team stream or by submitting changes to the team stream.
Visual XML Development Environment
Application Developer Integration Edition provides a comprehensive visual XML development environment. It:
With Application Developer Integration Edition, you can:
Web Services-Enabled Applications
Build and deploy Web services-enabled applications for your dynamic e-business across the broadest range of software and hardware platforms used by today's businesses. IBM's Web services development tools are based on open, cross-platform standards:
Application Developer Integration Edition facilitates the following Web services development tasks:
Professional Web Development Environment
The professional Web development environment is also included in Application Developer Integration Edition to provide the tools necessary to develop Web applications as defined in the Sun Microsystems Java Servlet specification. Web applications include:
Application Developer Integration Edition
This Web development environment brings all aspects of Web application development into a common interface. Within the integrated Web development environment, it is easy to collaboratively create, assemble, publish, deploy, and maintain dynamic, interactive Web applications.
The Web development environment includes the following features:
Service Oriented Environment
Application Developer Integration Edition is a service-oriented development environment that provides a set of tools and wizards that facilitate the development of "services," mapping between services, and visual composition of a service out of other services (a Service Flow).
The different parts of the tool and meta-data are coordinated using the service model, which consists of the Web Services Description Language (WSDL), binding extensions, and XML Schema. This can be used to describe any kind of service provider including a Java bean, an EJB, Web service, CICS service, and ERP service. The service model gives you the advantage of a consistent view of any service regardless of the implementation. The tool also supports the generation of service proxies, and service provider skeletons (Java or EJB).
Integrating your own connector with the service development tools of Application Developer Integration Edition requires the development of a JCA tool plug-in. The JCA tool plug-in is a J2EE Connector Architecture extension to make connectors pluggable into tool environments. IBM is actively working to integrate this capability into a future version of the J2EE Connector Architecture. Application Developer Integration Edition supports and fully documents how you can use the "JCA tool plug-in component" to integrate one of your own existing connectors with Application Developer Integration Edition.
Application Developer Integration Edition includes JCA Resource Adapters (development use only) for CICS ECI, CICS EPI, IMS and HOD 3270, and a 3270 tool that can "scrape" 3270 green screens and record a screen flow. The editor function allows you to easily support screen recognition, and it will generate WSDL and XSD.
Application Developer Integration Edition has all of the components required to create services that are both powerful and flexible including:
Service Perspective and Service View
The Service Perspective customizes the layout of the Application Developer Integration Edition workbench to facilitate the development of services. The perspective contains views of workbench resources and the menu shortcuts that you would typically use when you develop Services: the Service view, the J2EE view, the Java view and the server view. The Service view provides you with a hierarchical view of your service resources. The view presents the Service projects, the Service definitions, the Deployed services, the EJBs generated for these services and the Resource Adapters for which a JCA tool plug-in has been provided.
Service Provider Browser
The Service Provider Browser is a one-stop shop for creating service definitions from existing service providers. Supported providers are Java classes, Session EJBs (stateless), and JCA-accessible Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) for which a JCA tool plug-in has been provided.
Service Definition Tools
The Service Definition wizard helps create new service definitions (WSDL documents). The Service Definition Editor is a powerful, hierarchical WSDL editor. It provides source editing capability as well as a browser style design editor.
Service Flow Tools
The Service Flow wizard helps create new flows. The Service Flow Editor is a graphical composition tool that allows you to compose a service out of one or more other services. Since a flow is itself a service you can create a flow that has within itself other nested flows, to multiple levels.
XML Schema Tools
The XML Schema wizard and editor allow you to create and edit XML Schema definitions, which are used in WSDL to type parts of WSDL messages.
The Transformer tool is an editor for expressing mappings between WSDL messages and XML schemas, using XSLT. A Transformer is a service. Transformer services are used by service flows to customize existing services to map data that flows between the services invoked by the flow.
Service Deployment Tool
The Service Deployment tool allows you to deploy services into WebSphere. By default, deployed services are accessible via the EJB client-programming model. Additional inbound bindings (such as the SOAP binding) can be added to the service. Future versions of Application Developer Integration Edition may provide support for JMS bindings.
Service Proxy Wizard
The Service Proxy wizard allows you to create proxies for services. Proxies make interactions between applications and services simple by representing a service to an application. Java classes are supported in two different ways, Command and Stub. Proxies for Session EJBs can also be built using the Service Deployment tool.
Service Skeleton Wizard
The Service Skeleton wizard allows you to create implementation skeletons
from service definitions. The skeleton tool examines the WSDL and
generates an implementation skeleton from it. This tool can be used for
a top-down approach to creating a service that is, starting with the
service description and then creating the implementation. Currently,
Java classes and session EJBs (stateless) are supported.
