Description

Overview

When WebSphere Developer for System z is used with the IBM Software Development Platform, developers can extend its processing to meet a broad range of requirements addressing SOA applications and integrated life cycle management directly from WebSphere Developer for System z.

Key capabilities of WebSphere Developer for System z help you perform:

Web development

  • Integrate your existing z/OS business applications with interoperable Web services and SOA.
  • Utilize easy-to-use wizards and tools to bring many aspects of Web development (HTML, JSP, JSF, and servlets) into a common interface. This enables developers with diverse technical backgrounds, and even those unfamiliar with Java, to build rich, data-driven applications.
    • Visually map and construct Web applications using Model-View-Controller design with Java Server Faces and Struts
    • Quickly build rich Web user interfaces and Web forms with reusable drag-and-drop Java Server Faces (JSF) components and generate code for event handling, user input validations, and data binding
    • Easily build rich-function Web pages in a visual or source editing mode using the advanced-function HTML and JSP editor
  • Connect your Web applications to relational databases, Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) components, and Web services using simple point-and-click tools that support Service Data Objects, an emerging industry standard for accessing heterogeneous data.
  • Accelerate portal, SOA, and J2EE using Rational® Application Developer tools and wizards.
  • Leverage existing skills and shorten the Java learning curve with drag-and-drop user interface (UI) components and point-and-click database connectivity.
  • Improve code quality with automated tools for applying J2EE coding standard reviews, component and Web Service unit testing, and multitier runtime analysis.
  • Visualize and graphically edit code through the UML Visual Editor for Java and EJB.

CICS, IMS, DB2, Batch, and UNIX System Services development

  • Improve the productivity of your developers with development and maintenance tools for z/OS (COBOL, PL/I, C, C++, Java, High-Level Assembler) applications and Microsoft Windows (COBOL, PL/I) applications, as well as access to AIX® file systems, z/OS and UNIX System Services file systems, submitting z/OS jobs, monitoring z/OS Job execution queues, and debugging artifacts after access
  • Speed coding by using the visual configurable editor and statement assisted creation, and verify syntax of COBOL, PL/I, C, C++, High-Level Assembler, and Java languages
  • Provide open access by developing, testing, and deploying Web Services to WebSphere, CICS, and IMS environments

Integrated life-cycle development

  • Collaborate and share assets across the team using built-in IBM Rational ClearCase® LT version control or IBM SCLM Toolkit
  • Adapt and extend your development environment with Eclipse-based plug-ins to match your needs
  • Quickly build and deploy interactive reports using drag-and-drop UI components and Crystal Reports

Enterprise Service Tools deploying to CICS Service Flow Feature

Enterprise Service Tools

Enterprise Service Tools is an integrated perspective that assists a CICS developer in the following tasks:

  • Creating a CICS Web service that uses a new or existing CICS application as its application component
  • Creating a IMS SOAP Gateway Web service that uses a new or existing IMS application as its application component
  • Creating a Web service that is not runtime-specific from a new or existing application
  • Using the System z Database Application Generator to create a COBOL CICS application that accesses a z/OS DB2 database
  • Developing a comprehensive Web service that collects and processes data from multiple sources, including CICS nonterminal applications, CICS terminal applications, and Web services

Enterprise Service Tools combines capabilities that were formerly available in the XML Services for the Enterprise plug-in and in the Service Flow Modeler plug-in. Enterprise Service Tools features an enhanced user interface that increases usability and simplifies the overall service flow development process.

CICS Service Flow Feature

The Enterprise Service Tools provide six types of projects that allow you to transform an existing CICS application to a Web service or to integrate an existing CICS application into a Web service. The service flow specific project can also be driven by MQ Messages and CICS Transaction Gateway.

The service flow project view is one of the six project views provided in Enterprise Service Tools. It allows you to develop a comprehensive Web service that collects and processes data from multiple sources, such as programs, screens, databases, and Web service invocable processing.

The CICS Service Flow Feature must be installed to run the Service Flow project. The CICS Service Flow Feature requires CICS Transaction Server (CICS TS) V3.1.

The CICS Service Flow feature provides components that extend CICS TS by providing adapters that exploit CICS interfaces to invoke the CICS terminal-oriented transactions and COMMAREA programs required by the Web service generated from the service flow project.

In support of the latest capabilities of the Service Flow Modeler in WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0, the CICS Service Flow Feature is enhanced as follows:

  • Integration with Web services and MQ environments is more easily enabled by providing for the use of CICS TS channels and containers as input and output interfaces to a service flow.
  • Support for invoking Web services as part of a service flow is introduced
  • Additional management and configuration capability have been introduced together with improved tracing.

The CICS Service Flow Runtime delivers adapters for access to existing CICS transaction and application interfaces using non-invasive techniques, so that the CICS application assets orchestrated by the service flow do not have to be altered to support the CICS business service flow. This helps enable the fast reuse of existing assets while helping to minimize the risk of the new implementation. If required, the CICS business service can persist state data related to the business service between multiple invocations of the CICS application interfaces.

Where there is a requirement to integrate information from non-CICS applications into the CICS business service, the Service Flow Runtime delivers a Web services adapter and a WebSphere MQ adapter that enable the CICS business service flow to access any application supporting these interfaces, wherever the application may reside in the enterprise solution architecture.

The base capabilities provided by CICS TS to access CICS application interfaces extend to capabilities such as:

  • Web services
  • Link3270 Bridge
  • Distributed Program Link (DPL)
  • WebSphere MQ Adapter
  • Front End Programming Interface (FEPI)

The CICS Service Flow Runtime exploits these capabilities when generating the CICS business service function to provide the implementation needed to reuse the existing CICS applications as components in the CICS business service flow.

For more information on the CICS Service Flow Feature, refer to 205-303

Statement of direction

Enterprise Generation Language

To increase the flexibility of IBM's Software Development Platform, IBM is introducing a new modular approach to packaging selected components. The first step in this modularization is to decouple the Enterprise Generation Language (EGL) development environment from the Eclipse-based Software Development Platform products in which it has been hosted (for example, Rational Application Developer, WebSphere Developer for System z) and to make it available as an EGL extension, a separately orderable and installable product feature. WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 therefore does not contain any EGL development tools.

IBM is currently updating and enhancing the EGL development tools and plans to make them available in early 2007 maintaining full upward compatibility with previous versions of EGL.

WebSphere Developer for zSeries V6 customers who currently use EGL should continue to develop EGL applications using WebSphere Developer for zSeries V6 until the equivalent EGL functionality becomes available as a product extension to WebSphere Developer for System z V7.0 and the other Software Development Platform products. These customers will be entitled to obtain the EGL Extension product.

VisualAge® Generator Customers should consider converting their applications to EGL and migrating to WebSphere Developer for zSeries V6 or Rational Application Developer V6. These converted applications will be upwardly compatible to the EGL Extension product, when available.

All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice.
