Tell us what you do!

Hello there,

the forum gives us a little overview on where you are stuck in the new version of WebAS. But what we really would like to know is what do you do with it once youre through and what would you like to do with it, that you cannot do yet?

Don't get me wrong: The feature set is complete at this time, but we may be able to deliver descripoins how to do things....

Regards,

Benny

    Benny,

    I am a java programmer. I am most interested in you J3EE engine. I have been using it as of late, because the company I am working for just recently purchased the WebAS 6.20 suite.

    What I would like to see in the furture is ease of use and development. What I'm refering too is the need for deploying applications. I am use to the Weblogic and Tomcat environment and have gotten spoiled by the structure by which they run applications. I do not need to create a jar, I do not need to create a .ear, I just create an application using the structure in which the .ear would be setup and the server runs the application without packaging. The web.xml is picked up from the WEB-INF directory that the hosts directory is setup to use. I can specify a for every virtual host. With this I can also specify env variables for each virtual host.

    If your J2ee Engine does this already, I would love to know how.

    Hello Benny

    What do you mean by "the new version of WebAS" ?

    And maybe you can start with telling us what you expect us to do with "it".

    Best regards

    • Hello Thomas,

      well, the newest you can get is the preview version on SDN, which is the Java Engine only as you most surely and (in your case) reluctantly have noticed. Sorry for refering to "WebAS" by meaning only parts of it...

      Motivation of this question is that we have to provide content for SDN and therefore it would be nice to get your comments into what direction we should invest our time. Now please, I know your opinion about the Java part already, so you don't have to repeat it.

      Famous Dirk (PM of ABAP) already takes care that the ABAP world is not forgotten in SDN and initiated already some additional action for you.

      Regards 😉

      Benny
