Developing Java and Web Services Applications on Rational Application Developer V6

How to Use Rational Application Developer 6

Free form: You can also use WRD to reduce the complexity of application construction. In this scenario, instead of providing a fully-constructed J2EE application, you place in a directory the individual parts of the application, such as Java Source files that represent Servlets or EJBs, static resources, XML files, and so on. You then configure WRD to construct a J2EE compliant application and deploy that application on a target server. Free form is ideal for initial prototyping of applications or development of library code. However, use caution when using free form development for enterprise applications. Developers can quickly lose control of their build and deployment process. Here is an example of using free form:

  • Configure the WRD workspace:
  1. export WORKSPACE=D:/WRDWorkSpace
  2. $WAS_HOME/bin//wrd-config -project "MyProject" -style "freeform" -runtime "was60" -runtimePath "D:/WebSphere_60/AppServer" -monitor
  • Start the WRD daemon: $WAS_HOME/bin/wrd -monitor
  • Create a Java Servlet or EJB class in the directory using any editor.
For more information on WRD, see the WebSphere V6 Information Center.

Here is an example of the code. These were the only artifacts developed.

HelloServlet.java


package com.wrdtest;

import java.io.*;

import javax.naming.InitialContext;

import javax.servlet.http.*;
import javax.servlet.*;

public class HelloServlet extends HttpServlet {

public void doGet (HttpServletRequest req,
HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException, IOException {

PrintWriter out = res.getWriter();
try {
InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();
HelloHome helloHome = (HelloHome)ctx.lookup("ejb/Hello");
HelloRemote hello = helloHome.create();
out.println("Hello, world!");
out.println(hello.getMessage());
out.close();

} catch (Exception e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace(out);
out.close();
}

}
MyService.java

package com.wrdtest;

/**
* @author Admin
*
*@ejb.session name="Hello" type="Stateless"
*jndi-name="ejb/Hello"
*local-jndi-name="ejb/Hello"
*/
public class MyService {

/**
*
* @param symbol
* @return
* @throws StockException
*
* @ejb.interface-method view-type="both"
* @ejb.transaction type="Required"
*
*
*
*/
public String getMessage()
{
return "Hello EJB";
}

}
Question: I am working with RAD and WebSphere 6.0. I want to deploy an EAR file with log4j, but an error appears during deployment. What is wrong? The log4j.xml is in the ear file.

Answer: I assume you are packaging the log4j.jar at the EAR level. It seems you are trying to load your logging configuration directly from the file system. I usually tell people to load the log4j configuration file as a classpath resource. This way, you can put it in a WebSphere Application Server shared library or package it in the EAR. You can use something like:

ClassLoader.getSystemResourceAsStream()

Or, you can load a system property with the location of the configuration file.
