Using a software configuration management (SCM) system is an integral part of any development project. Source code is your most valuable resource and must be protected. However, with the large number of products available from many different vendors, it's essential that you choose an SCM system that will work with your favorite development tools. The External Version Control tool in VisualAge for Java, version 3.5, allows you to interact with several external SCM systems from within the integrated development environment (IDE). Once you've used the tool to associate a project in VisualAge for Java with a group of files in the SCM system, you can add and remove classes from the SCM system, as well as check classes in and out. In Part 1 of this article (JDJ, Vol. 6, issue 3) we discussed several aspects of this tool, including: Using the team server instead of the Ex... (more)

Developing Web Applications Using VisualAge for Java and WebSphere Studio Part 2

In the September Java Developer's Journal (Vol. 5, issue 9) we discussed the tools available in VisualAge for Java and WebSphere Studio for building and debugging Web applications. This month we demonstrate how to use these tools to build a simple Web site that allows users to access their bank accounts using an Enterprise JavaBean. We'll build on the EJB created in the June JDJ article "Building Enterprise Beans with VisualAge for Java" (Vol. 5, issue 6). The Tutorial In that article you learned how to create an EJB bean (i.e., how to build part of the server-side piece of the W... (more)

Developing Web Applications Using VisualAge for Java and WebSphere Studio Part 1

Your team has been assigned to build an end-to-end Web application. As a Java programmer, you need to focus on the code, to ensure that it can successfully call the required data. Your graphic and Web designers need to focus on the actual presentation to the user, to determine how best to display the information. To ease the server-side programming process, it makes sense to build the application using a role-based approach: Business logic: Determines the content generated Presentation style and content: Determines how the information is presented Whether you're a Java programme...

Advanced Source Control In VisualAge For Java

For software developers source code is more than just files on a disk - it's the result of hours of thought and work and must be protected. If you look at the number of software tools available to help developers track and store their source code, you'll see that code protection is a key part of any serious software development effort. A software configuration management (SCM) tool is as important as a compiler or debugger, but as any experienced developer can tell you, getting your favorite tools to work together isn't always easy - especially when they're from different compan...
