The ability to connect components is the first step in modernizing your application portfolio. In this IBM Redbooks publication, we look at a real-world example of creating and connecting a Web application to Enterprise business logic using the Struts-based model-view-controller (MVC) framework and associated tooling within WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer that makes this a snap.
To address the needs of large enterprises, a model-based paradigm for building applications in a Struts-based MVC framework is being delivered in the Enterprise Developer. It provides a visual construction and assembly-based environment supporting the implementation of enterprise-level applications and including support for the multiple developer roles and technologies required by those applications. Examples of the technologies supported include HTML, Java, servlet, EJB, COBOL, EGL, PL/I, and connectors.
EGL is a high-level language that supports the development of applications in either WebSphere (Java) or traditional transactional environments (CICS). EGL's focus is to allow developers of various backgrounds to be able to write mission-critical business processes for the Internet, which can be leveraged from Struts-based Web applications.
This book introduces a sample application that encompasses Enterprise Developer concepts and best practices.
