Author: Craig Pelkie


WebFacing Now! Tomcat Edition (WCAT)
Author: Craig Pelkie

Choose from two big editions:  WAS-Express Edition and Tomcat Edition available

We'll show you how to do it right.
No software to buy, no recoding, no Java, no HTML,
no JavaScript, no CGI or complicated APIs

Look what you just did!

WebFacing Now! takes you step-by-step through the installation and configuration process. It covers converting DDS screens into WebFacing code in either the WebSphere Test Environment or the Tomcat Test Environment on your PC.

You'll then see how to configure, start and test either WSApp Server-Express or Tomcat on your iSeries and bring up your new web apps served from your iSeries in your PC browser. Your users will stand up and applaud!

What you need on your iSeries:

For WebFacing Now! WAS-Express Edition:
• OS/400 V5R1M0 or OS/400 V5R2M0 and WebSphere Application Server-Express version 5.0 or 5.1 (Licensed Program Product 5722-IWE v5.0 or 5722-E51 v5.1)

For WebFacing Now! Tomcat Edition: 
• OS/400 V5R1M0, OS/400 V5R2M0 or OS/400 V5R3M0 and Tomcat 3.2.4 (shipped as part of Licensed Program Product 5722-DG1, IBM HTTP Server)

For both the WAS-Express and Tomcat Editions you need one of the following IBM development tools for your PC:
• WDSC for iSeries, version 5.0
• WDSC Advanced Edition for iSeries, version 5.0
• WDSC for iSeries, version 5.1
• WDSC Advanced Edition for iSeries, version 5.1


Use WebSphere
or Tomcat!

Includes step-by-step instruction and a CD-ROM with complete RPG and DDS source code for the examples

Note: WDSCi 5.0 or WDSCi 5.1 are shipped with the IBM Licensed Program Product, 5722-WDS WebSphere Development ToolSet. If you have the RPG or COBOL compiler installed on your iSeries, you should also have a copy of the PC tools.

What you will do:

  • Install WDSCi on your PC - complete instructions to install and configure the toolset you'll use for WebFacing
  • Convert DDS screens to WebFacing applications - a step-by-step guide to using the WebFacing tool in WDSCi to convert the sample DDS screens
  • WAS-Express Edition: Configure WebSphere Application Server-Express on the iSeries - a "how-to" guide to configure WAS-E to run your WebFacing application.
  • Tomcat Edition: Configure an HTTP Server (powered by Apache) and Tomcat on the iSeries - a "how-to" guide to configure Tomcat on the iSeries to run your WebFacing application.
  • Export and run your WebFacing application - how to copy (export) your WebFacing code from your PC to WAS-E (WAS-Express Edition) or from your PC to Tomcat (Tomcat Edition), and how to get your WebFacing application up and running on the iSeries.

Upon completion you'll be able to:

  • Work with WDSCi on your PC to create WebFacing applications
  • WAS-Express Edition: Configure and work with WebSphere Application Server-Express on your iSeries
  • Tomcat Edition: Configure and work with the HTTP server and Tomcat on your iSeries
  • Create WebFacing applications using your programs and DDS display files
  • Work with WDSCi and the IFS to export your WebFacing applications from the PC to your iSeries
  • Run your programs as WebFacing applications in your PC browser
WebFacing Now! includes a CD-ROM with complete RPG and DDS source code for the examples.
