Description
Bottom rule

IBM Rational Developer for i for SOA Construction V8.0 delivers tools for web development and for creating, maintaining and enhancing existing RPG and COBOL applications. Rational Developer for i for SOA Constructions contains two products:

  • IBM Rational Business Developer V8.0.1
  • IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software - RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i V8.0

The combination of IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software and IBM Rational Business Developer enables developers to create web applications and web services that leverage existing IBM i applications all with a programming language (EGL) that are easy for RPG and COBOL developers to learn.

IBM Rational Business Developer

IBM Rational Business Developer delivers the latest tools and technology to support the definition, testing, and debugging of EGL applications and services. It also delivers a generation engine that transforms the EGL source into Java™, JavaScript™, or COBOL code optimized for deployment to a broad variety of application hosting environments, including Java Enterprise Edition servers (such as WebSphere®, Apache Tomcat, and IBM i Integrated Application Server) and IBM i.

EGL, an open source business language, is ideal for business-oriented development teams who value ease of learning and high productivity, but need to quickly deliver modern applications and services. EGL supports the needs of business application developers by delivering the tools and capabilities to develop and deploy applications and services to a wide variety of platforms and operating environments using a single programming language.

EGL hides the details of the target execution platforms and associated middleware, freeing developers to focus on the business problem rather than on the underlying implementation technologies. Developers who have little or no experience with Java and web technologies can use EGL to create enterprise-class services and applications quickly and easily.

IBM Rational Business Developer provides a comprehensive and powerful development environment for the EGL language. IBM Rational Business Developer provides the tools to develop, test, debug, build, and deploy EGL applications. These tools work seamlessly with other Eclipse-based tools, like Rational Developer for Power®, to provide a seamless development experience for all types of application development.

IBM Rational Business Developer addresses the full spectrum of modern business application scenarios, including development of:

  • Business services: The language includes the built-in notion of "service," allowing you to create and invoke services in a simple and straightforward way.
  • Web applications: Tight integration of EGL with the Java Server Faces (JSF) framework and JSF tooling enables programmers to create web applications in a simple and productive way, without the need to know either Java or the details of the JSF framework.
  • Rich Internet applications: With EGL Rich UI, organizations have the tools to build rich, responsive Web-based applications that access web services.
  • Portlets: EGL JSF web applications can also be deployed to WebSphere Portal Server, and EGL provides built-in functions to interface with the portal framework, including support for inter-portlet communications.
  • Reports: EGL provides integration with BIRT, an open source reporting engine, allowing you to create professional reports.
  • Batch systems: The language includes the built-in notion of "batch program," which can be generated to run without end-user interaction; for example, to produce reports or to batch database loads and updates.

With IBM Rational Business Developer, business developers can now develop rich, modern Web 2.0-style applications. The industry-wide adoption of Web 2.0 is changing the way people use and exchange information and how businesses operate on the web today. With Web 2.0, business can deliver external and internal solutions by modernizing and extending existing assets in innovative ways, while harvesting services dispersed across the Internet.

To deal with the challenges of building these rich, browser-based applications, Web 2.0 technologies are based on simpler programming models. Those techniques accelerate time to market by improving the consumption of existing enterprise assets. Web 2.0 is all about using the Internet creatively, as a platform to foster innovation, speed, and simplicity.

For more information on IBM Rational Business Developer V8.0.1, refer to Software Announcement 210-404, dated October 26, 2010.

IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software V8.0 - RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i

The RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i feature of IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software provides a rich set of integrated development tools for organizations creating, maintaining, and enhancing RPG, COBOL, CL, ad DDS based applications on IBM i. The RPG and COBOL Development Tools for i includes:

  • An Eclipse-based development environment with integrated search, edit, analysis, build, and debug capabilities
  • Access to remote libraries, objects, members, IFS files, and jobs
  • Rich source editing support with content assist, outline view, color tokenizing, quick navigation, syntax checking, and much more
  • Visual editors for DDS display file and printer file source members
  • Integrated support for launching remote compiles and integrating compile error feedback
  • Debugging support with real-time monitoring of field changes
  • Analysis tools that can visualize procedure, subroutine, and program calls, and ILE bindings

Combined, IBM Rational Business Developer and IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software, allow you to modernize existing RPG and COBOL applications to enable them for SOA. For example, you can use the analysis, edit, and debug capability in IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software to separate your business logic into reusable procedures. The web services wizard can be then be used to turn these procedures into web services enabling the RPG and COBOL business logic to be used by EGL and other languages and runtime platforms.

For more information on IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software V8.0, refer to Software Announcement 210-360, dated October 7, 2010.

IBM Rational Team Concert™ Integration

IBM Rational Developer for Power Systems Software and Rational Business Developer provide integration with IBM Rational Team Concert; a collaborative life cycle management solution that offers integrated team collaboration, work items, source control, build, dashboards, and reporting. IBM Rational Team Concert also has built-in planning and process support that can help teams using Agile or traditional development processes.

Many applications today are comprised of multiple program languages and platforms; such as a web frontend written in one programming language and business logic in RPG or COBOL. IBM Rational Team Concert allows all development teams, regardless of development platform or programming language to use a single application lifecycle management solution for tracking work items, planning, source control, and builds. With all teams using IBM Rational Team Concert it becomes easier to track dependencies, plan, and get a clearer picture of the overall status of projects or changes that span multiple teams.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
