RE: Error in creating Dynamic Web Project

There are a number of things that get fixed when you create a new
workspace.  I have learned that is the first thing to try to see if I
mucked something up in my current workspace. The PCML wizard is another
one of the things that pukes on me before I created a new workspace.  I
will try to remember the others and post them here.

I just figured it couldn't hurt to try and create a new workspace being
that will reset all configuration files and such (from what I
understand).

I was going to ask just that question, Aaron!  How in the world does
this fix the problem???  What prompted you to try it??

RE: JSF and App Servers

WDSC by default puts all the JARs required by the web module into the
WEB-INF/lib directory (one of the mixed benefits of J2EE is that
everything gets encapsulated and can stand on its own).  You can
identify any non-standard (or not-standard-yet) classes because the
packages wil start with com.ibm.

As I read different groups implementation of JSF (IBM, Sun, etc) I am
finding that they all have their own custom JSP tag lib for the JSF
components.

My question is specifically this.  What do I need to watch out for if I
develop my JSF in WDSc using jsf-ibm.jar and deploy that to Tomcat 5?
Note that I am not using WDO which I have heard is IBM specific (for
now).

Thanks in advance,
Aaron Bartell

Source compare - WDSC 5.1.0.3


I am trying to do a source compare between  2 LPARs, it appears to do
nothing after selecting the sources to compare. Is there any additional
setup or am I missing something. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

RE: JSF and App Servers

>(one of the mixed benefits of J2EE is that everything gets encapsulated
and can stand on its own)

Glad you brought this up, because I have been wondering about it for
some time.  In the RPG world we can bind a component (say service
program) by reference and as long as the bound component is on the
machine and in the current library list, it can then be used by the
consuming app.  How would one do this in Java?

What are the packaging practices others use for doing J2EE development?
Does a whole application get put into an EAR or does each component have
it's own EAR file (one could describe component as a business logic
class or a jsp page)? Is it possible to share an object across EAR's
without that object being duplicated?

I can definitely see the benefits to having and EAR file that is
independent from anything else, but that also creates a maintenance
nightmare if you have a lot of reusable code.

Thoughts?

Error on startup of the test server

I am trying to look at the webfacing tool.  I took the lab at COMMOM and everything went well.  I am following the
lab steps for one of our own applications but cannot start the test server.  I have no idea what I am doing
wrong so I am asking for some help.  Below is the entire output from the console when I tried to start the
server, any help would be appreciated.  By the way, I only have 512 of RAM.  I have asked for a RAM upgrade but
not gotten it yet.

Thanks in advance.

Java Studio Creator by Sun

Just wondering if anybody else has used Java Studio Creator for JSF
which is a product very similar to WDSc? (less features, but better in
certain areas)

I have used it and found Java Studio Creator's equivalent to Free Layout
Mode in WDSc to be seemingly better because of the way it approaches the
absolute positioning of UI components.  It uses style sheets and such to
position components on the screen vs a whole slew of tables, rows, and
cells.  This makes the development of dragging and dropping UI
components on a window much like developing a thick client app (very
nice and easy to place components).

WDSc development team, just wondering if this is a possiblity in future
versions of WDSc? Dragging and dropping in Free Layout mode in WDSc
isn't this smooth.

Comments?

Re: JSF and App Servers

Aaron,

Bring this up on the Ignite list and watch Cancilla blow a gasket!  We
get our 520 with WAS-E in a week or so; I'm already worrying about
this one.  From what I've been told, it sounds like web assets (like
images and such) can't really be reused easily.  You stick them in the
EAR, and that's where they live.

My question (sort of in the same vein) is should I have different
EAR's for the different "applications" on my site (shipment tracking,
transit time lookup, rate quote), or should all of my interactive apps
be in one EAR?

RE: JSF and App Servers

We split static resources out of each web module and store them on the
web server (where they belong!!) and change the relative url's in our
JSPs to absolute url's (this is soft-configured by a library).  We also
take redundant JARs out of each web module and either store them in the
EAR project (which puts them on the application classloader classpath)
or reference them as Shared Libraries (which also puts them on the
application classloader classpath).  

As far as packaging goes, I prefer to keep coupled items in the same EAR
and split everything else out.

RE: Error on startup of the test server

Ron,

Thanks for responding Ron.  We currently have no Websphere Express servers running on the i5.  My
understanding is that they are not required when using the local test servers for webfacing.  Another
member of my team is still using WDSc 5.1.0 and can start a local Webphere Express 5.0 server on his laptop
within WDSc.  When I try start a local Websphere Express 5.1 sever using WDSc 5.1.2 I can't.

Does 5.1.2 require the remote server to be active when 5.1.0 did not?
