Overview

IBM Rational Application Developer is a very important tool for developers, but it is also a complex product. An Introduction to IBM Rational Application Developer, A Guided Tour is designed to jumpstart the learning process with its focus on interactive hands-on learning through a wide variety of useful, practical, end-to-end tutorials.

Hands-on exercises and in-depth explanations form chapter "modules" within the book, thereby providing a complete step-by-step guide to each specific topic while allowing readers to pick and choose which tutorials they want (or need) to study without necessarily going in chapter order. And, because of its modular structure, each tutorial's sample code is independent of any earlier tutorials, freeing readers to skip from tutorial to tutorial, based on their specific knowledge requirements. Because of this design, this book continues to be a useful reference as a reader's "need to know" increases.

Using this book's method, readers quickly learn IBM Rational Application Developer—regardless of their previous level of experience or inexperience. For beginners, there are tutorials that teach how to create Web, EJB, JMS, and Web Services applications using Rational Application Developer. For the more advanced readers, there are tutorials on security, publishing, testing, team development, profiling, and logging. Written to appeal to as broad an audience as possible, the tutorials run on common databases, including IBM Cloudscape, IBM DB2® Universal Database, Microsoft® SQL Server, Sybase® Enterprise Systems, and Oracle® Database.

    powerful development of Java applications under WebSphere

    The RAD is a powerful way to develop Java applications for use in WebSphere. The authors presuppose prior knowledge of Java on your part. So that when they give examples of Java code, they do not have to go into a detailed explanation of the elementary syntax within these. In the J2EE world, matters have grown to the extent that there is now a huge amount of classes and applications that one can learn. A formidable commitment. What the text shows is how to do many of these tasks under RAD for WebSphere. From a simple developing of a standalone Java application to doing servlet and Java Server Pages web development. RAD has an easy user interface, with convenient helper capabilities that reduces some of the tedious burden. Like being able to quickly compile and run a program that consists of several classes. If you have already used Eclipse, the good news is that RAD derives from Eclipse 3. And RAD supports what is still the latest version of J2EE - 1.4. (Version 1.5 has not yet been officially released.) The book also explains more advanced Java topics. As in Web Services, a potentially promising new field. It turns out to be pretty easy to build and publish a Web Service with RAD. Takes a lot of the mystique out of what it means to write your own Web Service. This alone can be a big plus for the book, to some of you. Database interactions are also a practical part of many websites. I fully expected that the text would only deal with hooking to DB2. This is an IBM Press book, after all, and the authors hail from IBM. But surprisingly and commendably, the book shows how to connect to 5 databases - DB2, Cloudscape (which is from IBM), Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase and Oracle. A pragmatic recognition that not everyone uses DB2. The various database examples may also help you develop database analysis code that is as independent of the specific database as possible.
