This IBM Redbooks publication explains how VisualAge Generator V4 can be used to implement Web-based transaction systems that access enterprise server platforms. The implementation process includes Web Transaction program development, generation of JavaBeans, JSPs, and programs for the selected target runtime environment, and configuration of the runtime system.
In Part 1 we describe how VisualAge Generator uses the Web Transaction programming model to implement Web-based systems. The inner workings of the generated JSPs and JavaBeans and the VisualAge Generator GatewayServlet are fully described and contrasted with hand-crafted JSP and servlet systems.
The exercises in Part 2 allow you to develop an advanced understanding of how Web Transactions work, supported system structure options, state management implementation options, and how VisualAge Generator Templates can be used to rapidly implement fully functional Web Transaction systems.
In Part 3 you learn how to customize the generated JSPs, provide support for cascading style sheets (CSS) in a Web Transaction system, and integrate HTML-based Web sites and the generated JSPs for Web Transactions. An integrated approach for the use of WebSphere Studio and the WebSphere Test Environment provided by VisualAge for Java is also defined.
Part 4 provides you with a step-by-step guide to the process of installing, configuring, building, and running a Web Transaction system using the IBM WebSphere Application Server platform on Windows NT and Web Transactions running on Windows NT, TX Series (Windows NT) and CICS/ESA.
After reading the book you will fully understand how to use VisualAge Generator to build and implement an IBM WebSphere Application Server-based system that accesses enterprise transactions and data.
