Description

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer V5.1.1 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, traditional, and mixed workload 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 skill sets and extending existing systems.
  • Develop and integrate CICS and IMS transactional applications and Batch applications.
  • Take advantage of proven run-time environments, leveraging service oriented architectures and Web services, while helping reduce your deployment risks.

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

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer is built on Eclipse-based technology, so that developers can share a common view of applications and resources stored in a common repository. Employing the common services of an integrated development infrastructure helps facilitate better management and communications while reducing the requirements for manual integration. Eclipse technology also enables integration to complementary development tools that interoperate with other WebSphere Studio and Eclipse-based products. WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer extends the base Eclipse platform to provide end-to-end support for J2EE and Web services development, and is optimized for WebSphere Application Server, CICS, IMS, and DB2® deployment. Plug-ins are available to seamlessly integrate Enterprise Developer with IBM and third-party tools, and to support non-IBM application servers.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer includes a Web Diagram Editor that maps applications to help developers quickly recognize the flow, structure, and components of Web applications. The Web Diagram Editor provides a Struts-based automated design and construction environment that helps enable quick development of Web application architecture and the underlying code that implements that architecture. Java Server Pages (JSPs) implementing the visual parts of an application, beans implementing data access, and usage and actions implementing the business process in an application, including their relationships, are painted on a palette with available wizards that enable the entry of required information and properties.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer also contains tools for building the underlying business processing and infrastructure for Web applications. These tools support the popular, open-source Struts runtime, and include a visual construction environment that allows the developer to quickly link views with business logic implemented in a number of different technologies, such as Java, Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs), Web Services, COBOL, and PL/I. This capability allows many different skill sets to contribute to the construction of sophisticated Web, traditional, and mixed workload applications.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer combines visual construction of complex Web systems with the open Struts-based model-view-controller (MVC) component architecture. It embraces this architecture, which facilitates rapid change and component reuse with a model-based development paradigm, to provide the rapid construction of well structured e-business systems delivered to WebSphere. In addition, it integrates development tools for traditional transactional environments (CICS and IMS) and languages (COBOL and PL/I).

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, sometimes called services, allows teams to reuse proven and reliable capabilities, instead of duplicating their development efforts.

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer employs MVC architecture to create components and simplify 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 component processing in the supported WebSphere and z/OS environments. You can quickly change and integrate environments as your business needs change. Developers with varied skill sets can easily maintain Web applications and help save future development costs.

To help support the Struts framework, WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer includes a Web Diagram Editor 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 that 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.

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 EJBs and access transaction processing systems to better leverage your investments while you help lower the cost of retooling, integrating, and updating existing applications

WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer offers a fully supported EJB, V2.0 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 Structured Query Language (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.

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 Application Server, CICS, IMS, and DB2 transactional environments, and z/OS batch environments. The testing and debugging process begins early in application development, with breakpoint and monitor-testing capability available in the workstation-based development 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 in mixed-workload environments, distributed code profiling, and unit testing in Java/J2EE environments. 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.

Prerequisites for included complementary offerings

Also included in the WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer media package are a number of complementary product offerings. For a list of the included offerings, refer to Complementary product offerings in the Description section. Refer to the separate complementary product offerings' announcement letters, listed in the Description section, for software requirements for those complementary products.

Compatibility: The WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer V5 Enterprise Generation Language (EGL) language support has been removed from this release of WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer.

EGL in WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer V5.0 supported the creation of full-function Java and COBOL applications that deliver enterprise data to browsers; implements business logic; facilitates code preparation and deployment with automated procedures.

IBM plans to again add EGL Language Support, with significant extensions, to WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer later in 2004. These extensions will provide additional new application development capabilities for both Web and traditional text applications as well as enable migration and execution of existing VisualAge Generator V4.5 applications for selected platforms and data sources.

As an aid to the overall migration process, there will be a conversion utility provided to move existing application source code, including Web transaction, text-based, and Batch, from VisualAge Generator V4.5 to the new EGL syntax and eclipse-based projects.

Existing customers of VisualAge Generator V4.5 should continue to use this technology until the EGL language support is available. Customers using older versions of VisualAge Generator or Cross System Product should consider migrating all development to VisualAge Generator V4.5, or only the source code as a first step in utilizing the VisualAge Generator to EGL conversion utility. Contact your IBM representative for more information regarding available resources and other items that would help in making these choices.

Previews provide insight into IBM plans and direction. Availability, prices, ordering information, and terms and conditions will be provided when the program is announced. IBM's plans and intent are subject to change without notice.
