Description

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer V5 consists of a common workbench and integrated set of tools that support end-to-end, model-based application development, runtime-testing, and rapid deployment of e-business applications.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer supports a broad range of developers with added flexibility and the ability to integrate with existing applications:

  • Create Web applications by melding diverse employee skills sets and extending existing systems
  • Take advantage of proven run-time environments while helping reduce your deployment risks

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer offers integrated development environments (IDE) with advanced, easy-to-use tools and features to help developers rapidly design, code, and deploy complex applications.

Visual Builder: Provides a visual component construction environment based on Struts, an open source implementation of the MVC component architecture; helps construct MVC-based Web applications with a visual assembly tool; provides quick access to resource-appropriate editors and wizards; separates team responsibilities for greater productivity and focus.

EGL Support: Provides EGL support to create full-function Java and COBOL applications that deliver enterprise data to browsers; implements business logic; facilitates code preparation and deployment with automated procedures.

Java Development: Helps create Java code; enables incremental compilation and provides a common local and remote debugger benefit; includes Java source file tools to search, compare, and merge code and refactoring tools to help reorganize Java applications.

z/OS Development: Provides an interactive, workstation-based environment that provides quick access to z/OS (formerly S/390®) datasets; creates ASM, COBOL, or PL/I code; creates IBM CICS system-based code, IBM IMS, and Structured Query Language (SQL) statements.

Web Development: Helps develop creative and data-rich Web-based applications; provides a visual layout tool to help you write JavaServer Pages (JSP) and HTML, and also a wizard to develop servlet code; lets you creates Web applications from database queries and beans; includes graphic-design software for producing static and animated output; supports J2EE coding and deployment.

Analysis and Performance Profiling: Collects and presents Java run-time data in graphical and non-graphical views; helps detect application performance issues early in the development cycle and improve overall system efficiency.

J2EE 1.3 Platform Support: Features full Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), Version 2.0 support, Web Archive (WAR), and Enterprise Application Archive (EAR) deployment support; updated EJB test client and an enhanced unit-test environment create multiple projects with different unit-test configurations.

Testing and Deployment: Allows cross-platform interactive testing, debugging, and deployment of JSP, servlets, EJB, and HTML files on local and remote Web application servers and also CICS, IMS/DC, and batch debugging of COBOL, PL/I, and Assembler applications.

Web Services Deployment: Helps build and deploy Web services-enabled applications across a broad range of platforms; offers tools to ensure conformance to standards such as UDDI for Java, Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), and Web Services Description Language (WSDL).

Relational Database: Helps create and manipulate project data design as relational database (RDB) schemas; writes queries against local and remote data.

XML Development: Offers ability to create, view, edit, and validate document-type definitions (DTD) and XML schemas, transform XML documents into text, HTML, or other XML document types; integrates relational databases and XML.

Simplifies the Development Process: Creating high-performance, content-rich Web applications requires the strategic investment and careful management of resources and skills. To help shorten the development cycle and leverage resources, enterprise developers rely heavily on component technologies. Using components allows teams to reuse proven and reliable capabilities, instead of duplicating their development efforts.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer combines visual construction of complex Web systems with Struts-based MVC component architecture. MVC architecture creates components and simplifies the development process by allowing key aspects of Web applications to be isolated and maintained independently. The MVC pattern contains three main elements:

  • Model — Houses the core of the application functions
  • View — Gathers and submits information of user-interface elements
  • Controller — Manages the execution flow of the application

Widely used by J2EE experts, this architecture allows developers to define, reuse, and debug application flows, actions, and patterns. WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer supports HTML and JSP components incorporated in the view, servlet processing for the controller, and EJB, COBOL, PL/I, and EGL component processing in the supported WebSphere and z/OS environments. You can quickly change environments as your business needs change. Developers with varied skills sets can easily maintain Web applications and help save future development costs.

To help support the Struts framework, WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer includes a visual builder that maps out applications to facilitate a faster understanding of the flow, structure, and components of Struts-based Web applications. Developers have quick access to resource-appropriate editors and wizards and can separate team responsibilities to help improve productivity and focus.

Extends WebSphere Studio Workbench Technology: WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer is built on WebSphere Studio Workbench technology, so your developers share a common view of applications and resources stored in a common repository. This collaboration can facilitate management and communications, reduce the requirements for manual integration, and ultimately shorten the development process. A universal tool platform, WebSphere Studio Workbench enables you to integrate complementary development tools that can interoperate with other products built on WebSphere Studio Workbench.

Bridges the Skills Gap with Enterprise Generation Language: Some application developers are more experienced in middle-tier, Java-based programming models. Others have little Web expertise and focus instead on the business environment, while some developers are more familiar with traditional transactional environments like CICS. A high-level programming language like EGL is needed that allows developers from diverse technical backgrounds to quickly write full-function applications, which can ultimately result in Web-oriented Java applications and also traditional COBOL applications. Supported by WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer, EGL is a fourth-generation programming language that can speed the development of applications in either Web or traditional transactional environments.

EGL allows developers to implement business logic through a simple procedural language that hides the technological details of databases accessed through SQL, messages sent or received with MQSeries®, or environmentally specific commands executed in CICS.

Its automated procedures help facilitate code preparation and deployment. With the capability to extract difficult development processes — like I/O handling, message handling, and error handling — EGL support gives developers the ability to quickly create applications that can potentially run as Java applications in either the middle-tier or the Enterprise Information System (EIS) tier (such as CICS systems) of a Web application. Developers can write code in one target platform and easily convert applications for use on another platform. This means developers can code for current platform requirements without worrying about future migration.

Enhances Development Capability with Leading-Edge Tools: You have existing applications that you want to keep and important data residing in legacy systems. Enterprise application programmers need advanced tools to build Web applications with business logic that preserve investments and reduce development time. With WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer, you can:

  • Define JSPs and servlets and map entity beans to databases
  • Generate EJB tools to access transaction processing systems to better leverage your investments and help lower the cost of retooling, integrating, and updating existing applications

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer offers a fully supported EJB, Version 2.0 development environment to create and test applications for rapid deployment to your application servers. With a unit-test environment, WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer integrates tightly with the WebSphere software family and enables easy deployment to WebSphere Application Server.

A robust query engine supports deployed code by creating SQL strings to be generated into persister classes. WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer also provides tools to create, edit, and validate EAR files and editors to format deployment descriptors.

Provide a Robust XML Toolset: WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer provides wizards and tools to help you rapidly develop Web services in distributed and z/OS environments. Web services are standards-based, e-business applications — accessed through XML — that you can use individually or combine to perform complex transactions with minimal programming. Web services give global businesses a common language with shared definitions to discover each other's resources, connect dynamically, and enable conducting transactions in realtime with minimal human input.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer includes a comprehensive XML toolset to help you build DTDs, XML schemas, and files and integrate relational data with Web services. When integrated with the Enterprise COBOL compiler, WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer allows you to quickly and easily transform and combine CICS system-based COBOL code into XML-based applications to redeploy as Web services. The Web services you create with WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer conform to UDDI, SOAP, and WSDL standards.

Test and Debug During Runtime on Local or Remote Servers: Testing Web applications is just as complex and crucial as building them. With the WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer unit-test environment, you can configure local or remote servers to perform cross-platform interactive testing and debugging live in WebSphere, CICS, and IMS transactional environments. The testing and debugging process begins early in application development, with breakpoint and monitor-testing capability available in the visual assembly environment. This capability ensures that each aspect of the flow and the associated connections perform as required.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer includes a validation framework to identify errors on the fly — so programmers can help save time and money by immediately selecting and correcting errors. Troubleshooting options include traditional debugging, distributed code profiling, and unit-testing. It enables you to edit, test, check syntax, and compile locally. Then recompile the source, build a load module, and test and debug on a remote z/OS system.

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Subscription and Technical Support, is now included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support for the products announced in this letter is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement. This fee service enhances customer productivity by providing voice and/or electronic access into the IBM support organizations.

IBM includes Software Maintenance with each program acquired during the coverage period. The coverage period means the period commencing on the date you acquire the program up to the first or second anniversary date, depending on whether you acquired coverage for one or two anniversaries. The coverage period for Software Maintenance acquired in the two months preceding an anniversary date will be extended to the next applicable anniversary date.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your routine, short-duration installation and usage (how-to) questions, and code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at:

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for the design and development of applications, your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment, or failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.
