  • WDSC: Step by Step carries on the Step by Step series tradition of providing an easy-to-understand yet thorough introduction to today's most important technologies. In this book, you will discover the incredibly powerful WebSphere Development Studio Client (WDSC). Whether you intend to program only in RPG or plan to someday add Java and Web development to your RPG skill set, IBM has made it clear that WDSC is the tool you will be using.

    But WDSC isn't just a replacement for SEU; it charts a new path for development based on IBM's open-source Eclipse IDE. More than just an editor, WDSC is also a design studio, a compiler, an integration aid, and a test platform. It supports not only standard languages such as RPG and COBOL but also Java, HTML, JavaServer Pages, and Cascading Style Sheets.

    The sheer scope of features available in WDSC makes learning it overwhelming for many programmers. This book demystifies WDSC, making it accessible and far easier to learn.

    By design, WDSC: Step by Step walks a programmer through a working, integrated example while highlighting those features used on a day-to-day basis. You will learn all the key features of WDSC, including building a Web site, adding dynamic content, attaching it to an i5/iSeries program, and finally deploying it to a WebSphere Application Server.

    Not merely a WDSC reference, this book acts as an extended library session in which readers learn by doing and master enough techniques to continue learning on their own. No prior knowledge of Java, HTML, or Eclipse is required!

    From the Foreword by Jon Paris:

    "So if you are setting out to discover the joys of WDSC, where do you start? The answer is right here in your hands. Joe has produced an excellent step-by-step guide that will lead you through the major tool components needed to design and maintain tomorrow's iSeries applications."
