Setting Up Your Development Environment

This section shows how to prepare your Windows NT environment before you start developing your CORBA application using VisualAge for Java. The CICS ORB classes and the JCICS APIs are shipped with VisualAge for Java 3.0 Enterprise Edition as additional features. If you are working with Version 2.0, you need to copy the required packages from the CD-ROM that accompanies this book, set up the CICS IDL environment, and configure the ET/390 environment, as explained here:

Downloading the required packages from CICS Transaction Server

To develop a JCICS IIOP application on the workstation, you need, at a minimum, the CICS ORB and IDL compiler. If your application uses JCICS classes, you need the JCICS package as well. CICS TS for OS/390 Version 1.3 provides these packages and utilities in the HFS directory called $CICS_HOME/classes during CICS installation. FTP them to your workstation in binary format. They are also on the CD-ROM that accompanies this book in the directory that is called \cicsadp\CORBA Server\CICS classes. The three jar files supplied with CICS are:

dfjcics.jar

The JCICS API classes, required for compilation of Java server programs that uses JCICS to access CICS services.

dfjcorb.jar

The CICS ORB classes, required to build the IIOP server application. This also contains the GenericFactory utility that is used to help build your client program.

dfjcidl.jar

The CICS IDL compiler to be used in building the IIOP server application.
