Hello Michael, We have been using VA for Java Enterprise edition for some time now along with Websphere Application Server to serve up servlets and JSPs. We tried the trial version of Websphere Studio, but did not go with it. What is your knowledge of Java? That will be your biggest learning curve if you are not a proficient Java programmer yet. Your use of the toolbox will vary depending on if you use JDBC/SQL or the toolbox data access classes to access data on your AS/400. I am not familiar with the JSP/servlet development and debugging tools in Websphere Studio or VA for Java professional, but VA for Java Enterprise 3.0 has a great environment for developing JSP/servlets. This may be available in professional, I am not sure. You do NOT want to do any development or testing directly on the AS/400. It's way too slow compared to VA for Java on a PC. Also, you will need a fairly significant AS/400 to serve up your JSP/servlets in a reasonably efficient manner. If java isn't your thing yet, I would start there. Get some simple servlets, without database access, working inside your VA for Java environment, then build from there. Actually, I could write a book on your subject matter but just don't have the time right now. However, if you have any specific or general questions I would be glad to answer them.
