As described in Designing the Web Server Components in Chapter 8, there are three web server components in the overall design of the web application:

The Account Details form

A final stage is incorporating the CORBA client into the KanDoItServlet (See Incorporating the CORBA Client).

We decided to use IBM’s WebSphere Studio product to create these components as it was a product that drew together the development and the deployment of servlets, JavaBeans, and JSP pages. WebSphere Studio is a visual layout tool for creating and maintaining dynamic web pages using JSPs, full HTML, and JavaScript. It uses wizards to help you generate database-driven pages.

It would be possible to use other tools, such as VisualAge for Java, or generate the code manually, using your favorite editor. In this chapter, we walk you through the process of creating the code using WebSphere Studio, as well as looking at the code itself.

The overall design of the web component, as shown in Figure 8-1, shows how the web server components fit together. The best sequence for creating these components is:

  • AccountBean

  • KanDoItServlet ...
