Description

Image WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries V4 is the next generation of WebSphere Development Tools for iSeries, V5R1. The program name is changed from WebSphere Development Tools for iSeries to WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries for two reasons:

  • To reinforce the connection to the iSeries host product, WebSphere Development Studio for iSeries
  • To signal the introduction of the WebSphere Studio Workbench (known as Eclipse in the Open Source version) and the WebSphere Studio family of products

WebSphere Studio Workbench

WebSphere Studio Workbench is a standards-based, cross-platform Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The Workbench infrastructure facilitates the seamless integration of all development tools, IBM and non-IBM. Tool providers can focus on delivering additional function instead of being concerned about the underlying infrastructure and integration with other tools.

Products that are coded to the WebSphere Studio Workbench will work together.

WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced

WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced is one of IBM's new development environments. This set of tools merges IBM's two industry-leading Java and Web development tools — VisualAge for Java and WebSphere Studio. As new development roles evolved, developers were required to learn multiple tools with unique user interfaces, unique access methods and unique extensions. The introduction of IBM's new tools provides a consistent user interface, a consistent set of access methods, and a comprehensive set of extensions.

IBM delivers development tools based on WebSphere Studio Workbench. Development Studio Client is one of these suites of tools. Many iSeries unique enhancements are included in Development Studio Client. Development partners in the iSeries Tools Network program are invited to integrate their tools to this new IDE. All the components of the new IDE will share the same look and feel. As a result, transition between the tools will capitalize on learned skills and techniques. All functions added to the base IDE by IBM or non-IBM tools will conform to the same standards. This helps to preserve the investment made by developers in learning these components.

Web Services

To support Web Services, IBM delivers tools to create distributed Internet-based applications that are the fundamental building blocks for dynamic e-business. In Development Studio Client, Web Services tools are provided to enable the creation of Web Services components from existing iSeries programs. Wizards can be used to:

  • Create a Java Bean by "wrappering" an iSeries program, and
  • Generate a Web Service from this Java Bean

This is an extremely easy and cost effective method of leveraging and extending iSeries programs into Web Services. These Web Services can then be sold over the Web or shared over a network between businesses.

IBM WebFacing Tool

The IBM WebFacing Tool, is the most exciting new tool introduced as part of WebSphere Development Tools for iSeries, V5R1. The IBM WebFacing Tool creates a Web interface to an existing 5250 application in a development time conversion process. The conversion process typically requires little or no change to the existing iSeries program. The resulting application continues to support a green screen and will also support the Web interface. The tool creates standard JavaServer Pages, Java beans and servlets, based on the display file Database Description Specifications (DDS).

These Java ServerPages (JSPs), Java beans and servlets should run in any application server that supports these Java components. The conversion process is simple and easy. A typical business application with hundred screens can be converted and published to the application server for test in just a few hours.

The IBM WebFacing Tool is substantially enhanced in this release. Some key enhancements are:

  • More DDS keywords support
  • WebSphere Application Server V4.0 support
  • Full national language support
  • Improved authentication
  • Integration to WebSphere Studio Workbench
  • Full support of the WebSphere Application Server Test environment.

The goal of the IBM WebFacing Tool is to help iSeries development shops Web-enable applications and to participate in the world of e-business. The IBM WebFacing Tool generates Web interfaces for some complex and sophisticated e-business applications.

CODE

In this release, the CODE functions of editing, syntax checking and program verification of RPG and COBOL programs are integrated into WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced. Over the next several releases additional CODE functions will migrate to Workbench, making the CODE capabilities another set of Web tools iSeries extensions to WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced. Developers will be able to move from host development to Java and Web development in a couple of clicks of the mouse, using the same IDE.

VisualAge RPG

The classic version of VisualAge RPG is shipped with Development Studio Client.

WebSphere Development Studio Client for IBM iSeries (Development Studio Client) is the follow-on product for WebSphere Development Tools for iSeries, V5R1. This new tool is built on the WebSphere Studio Workbench, and extends IBM's WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced (Site Developer Advanced) to include iSeries specific tools and features.

The key features of Development Studio Client are:

  • From Site Developer Advanced:
    • Web development tools (Studio follow-on)
    • Page Designer
    • Rich Media
    • Web Services development environment
    • Visual XML development environment

Product Positioning

WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries V4 (Development Studio Client), is a component of the iSeries tier-priced host product, WebSphere Development Studio for iSeries (WDS). WDS contains the host application development (AD) tools: ILE RPG, ILE COBOL, ILE C, ILE C++, and Application Development ToolSet (ADTS).

WDS provides entitlement to the new workstation components, Development Studio Client. In most shops, Development Studio Client is delivered in this manner. WDS is priced and packaged to make it pervasive in the iSeries marketplace.

The workstation tools are packaged into Development Studio Client for two reasons:

  • To provide access to these tools for consultants and analysts who may not have their own iSeries system.
  • To provide a convenient method to keep the iSeries AD products current. As new enhancements are made to the Eclipse-based workstation products, these enhancements will be integrated into a new release of Development Studio Client.

Development Studio Client contains tools for:

  • Web and Java development
    • Site Developer Advanced plus iSeries plug-ins
  • Traditional iSeries host application development
    • CODE
  • Client/server development
    • VisualAge RPG
  • Web-enabling 5250 applications
    • IBM WebFacing Tool

Web and Java Development

Development Studio Client is based on WebSphere Studio Site Developer Advanced. Site Developer Advanced is a hybrid based on the merging of capabilities from VisualAge for Java, Professional Edition, and WebSphere Studio, Standard Edition and integration with the new WebSphere Studio Workbench. Site Developer Advanced provides a comprehensive set of tools for Web and Java development. iSeries specific enhancements are added to these Web and Java developments tools as part of Development Studio Client. These enhancements make it easier to develop Web and Java applications for the iSeries server.

Development Studio Client satisfies the needs of most iSeries developers. However, the product does not provide support for applications requiring the use of EJBs or J2EE. For these functions, iSeries developers will need to use WebSphere Studio Application Developer.

Host Development

ADTS is the traditional method for developing and maintaining Server side iSeries applications. CODE is the follow-on to ADTS. It is a Windows-based workstation tool that offers many productivity advantages over ADTS. CODE can give developers a 15% to 30% productivity boost over using ADTS. This is due to edit process improvements associated with the program verifier and the error list window, the multi-language, multi-platform debugger, the "What You See Is What You Get" DDS designer and the context-sensitive help.

Client/Server Development with VisualAge RPG

VisualAge RPG allows developers to create client, client/server or applet based e-business applications with a rich, event-driven GUI using RPG. Effective intranet applications can be created with VisualAge RPG under the following conditions:

  • The client is kept as thin as possible by keeping most of the business logic on the server.
  • A high speed intranet connection is used.

Web-Enabling Applications — IBM WebFacing Tool Versus 5250 Intercept Products

The IBM WebFacing Tool offers significant advantages over the 5250 intercept tools in terms of standards, costs, and extendibility.

Standards

The IBM WebFacing Tool creates a Web interface to an existing 5250 application by generating standard Java components: JSPs, Java Beans, and servlets. The Web interface is created in a development-time conversion step. The data created by the 5250 application is passed to the Java beans and then to the JSPs at runtime. The WebSphere Application Server then ships the HTML to the browser. The Java components can be customized or extended, and should execute in any application server supporting the Java standards. Typically, 5250 intercept products interpret/decompose the 5250 datastream to create the Web interface, and are tied to a proprietary, chargeable runtime environments. Customization of the Web enabled application can be accomplished using WebSphere Development Studio Client tools.

Costs

There are no additional tooling or runtime charges associated with a Web-enabled application created with the IBM WebFacing Tool. The IBM WebFacing Tool creates standard Java components that should run in any application server. Many 5250 intercept tools have both a development time tool charge and a runtime/usage charge. An application that has been Web-enabled using the IBM WebFacing Tool can support both a 5250 and Web interface concurrently.

Extendibility

The IBM WebFacing Tool creates standard Java components, JSPs, servlets, and Java beans, that can be leveraged and extended with standard Java tooling. Using the IBM WebFacing Tool is often the first step in leveraging 5250 applications and extending them to an e-business environment. With intercept tools, a base e-business / web application is not created. The e-business interfaces are generated at run-time. This makes it difficult to customize the user interfaces.

When would you use a 5250 intercept product rather than the IBM WebFacing Tool? A 5250 intercept tool should be chosen if the workstation DDS source code (required by the IBM WebFacing Tool) is unavailable. If the DDS source code has used DDS keywords that were not supported by the IBM WebFacing Tool, then an intercept tool might prove a better choice.

Description Continued

Development Studio Client Four Major Functional Objectives

  1. Develop/maintain iSeries applications using the Remote System Explorer
  2. Develop Web GUIs for iSeries legacy applications using IBM WebFacing Tool and the other Web tools
  3. Develop client applications for iSeries using the Java tools
  4. Work with other integrated Site Developer Advanced tools.

Develop iSeries Legacy Applications using the Remote System Explorer

  • Using Remote System Tools
    • The new Remote System Explorer provides a variety of remote system tools. These tools are accessed through the System perspective.
  • Managing System Connections
    • Create and manage connections to multiple iSeries systems. This feature also allows multiple server connections to the same system, each with its own independent job environment.
    • Within each connection, Subsystems define particular functionality. Filters are used within each Subsystem to filter and view only the requested objects. By default, three subsystems are provided, each containing predefined filters. These are the Job, File, and Command Subsystems.
  • Managing Native Objects
    • The File Subsystem provides easy access to remote objects. Filters can be created to provide a customized view of libraries, objects, and members.
    • Object manipulation is made quick and easy through the new environment. Selecting an object at anytime allows for object manipulation via pop-up menus. It provides useful actions such as Edit, Compile for ILE RPG source members, Rename, Delete, and displaying/changing certain Properties of any native objects.
  • Executing and Organizing Remote Commands
    • The Command Subsystem provides the ability to execute remote commands. It is possible to create individual command sets and/or expand predefined filters to execute remote commands on the remote system. When a filter is expanded and the command is executed, the messages are displayed.
    • By selecting the Command Subsystem itself, it is possible to open a 5250 session using the related Connection.
  • Managing Jobs
    • The Job Subsystem provides features that allow the organization and monitoring of particular groups of jobs on the iSeries system. There is one filter provided, but it is possible to create new ones which subset lists based on the criteria specified. Expanding a filter provides a tree-like view of the selected jobs.
  • Editing Host Applications
    • As stated above, by selecting a source member object in the File Subsystem perspective, an Edit option is provided.
  • Developing in a Team Environment
    • Site Developer Advanced provides team support across all projects: Remote Systems, Java, Web, XML, etc. Site Developer Advanced also provide team support using the Concurrent Versions System (CVS), an open source version control system available from http://www.cvshome.org/
  • Using Classic tools
    • The classic CODE/400 and VisualAge RPG tools can still be invoked. Through a tightly integrated communication design, the new remote systems framework is capable of launching the classic tools seamlessly, providing features such as CODE editing, CODE/400 program generation, CODE designer, and the Distributed Debugger.

Develop Web GUIs for iSeries Legacy Applications using IBM WebFacing Tools and the Web Tools

  • IBM WebFacing Tool
    • Use the IBM WebFacing Tool to quickly convert legacy application's UI components like DDS, help, and message files into Web GUI components.
  • Develop and Maintain Web GUIs — Use the Web tools iSeries extensions to develop and maintain Web GUIs to iSeries applications.
  • Testing and Deploying Web Applications
    • Use the Server tools to test web applications in the locally or remotely installed run-time environments.
  • Developing Web Services
    • Use the Web Services Client wizard to create the Java client access and to test an existing deployed Web service. Use the Web Services wizard to create, deploy, and test Web services based on artifacts such as Java beans, Web sites, and DADX files. The Web Services wizard supports the generation of the Java bean proxy, and a sample application that enables the user to test the Web service. Web service can then be published to the UDDI Business Registry. The IBM UDDI Explorer assists in discovering and publishing your Web service descriptions.

Develop Client Applications for iSeries Using the Java Tools

  • Use iSeries extensions for Java tools to develop Java applications or applets with interfaces to iSeries legacy applications. These iSeries extensions include several beans and wizards to help accessing legacy programs.

Work with Other Integrated Site Developer Advanced Tools

  • Site Developer Advanced provides a wide variety of tools and views to assist many development needs.
