Develop web applications
Learn about selecting tools for developing web applications. Design a web application and the required components.
There are two basic approaches to selecting tools for developing web applications:
- We can use one of the available integrated development environments (IDEs). IDE tools automatically generate significant parts of the servlet and JSP code, and Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) files. They also contain integrated tools for packaging and testing the web application components.
- If you decide to develop web components without an IDE, you need at least an ASCII text editor. We can also use tools available in the Java SE Development Kit 6 and in this product to assemble, test, and deploy the Web application components.
The following steps support the second approach, development without an IDE.
- If necessary, migrate any pre-existing code to the required version of the servlet and JSP specification.
- Write and compile the components of the web application. To access classes that were extended, compile your code using the -classpath option on the javac compiler. This option allows you to reference the j2ee.jar file in the product directory:
To compile that same servlet on the Windows NT version of WebSphere Network Deployment, specify:javac -classpath D:\Program Files\WebSphere\DeploymentManager\dev\JavaEE\j2ee.jar MyServlet.java
- Optionally disable JSP runtime compilation, if necessary.
