Each developer will have a copy of the source code and supporting jar files
on their own PCs for doing development.

You will want to have a central location for all of the developers to check
their code out and check their code back in. If there's only one developer
it makes it much simpler. You have to decide what you want to do for change
management therefore.

As far as the IFS , it can be used like a folder but if you're using change
management (CVS, SVN, etc) you're going to want a NFS based folder
structure with a mapped drive. I haven't used the IFS like that in a long
time. I find just putting it on a PC or network a whole lot simpler.

Kristen,

What do you mean by an Integration machine?
Would this be an existing iSeries LPAR, or possibly a different LPAR, and
why?
Any reasons not to simply store the java source in a folder on the IFS?

Paul

Subject: Re: Java appliaction management

I am an independent consultant Senior Java programmer analyst who
specializes in iSeries integration.

My answers are below.

1) What coding tool do most use? Either Eclipse or Rational Application
Developer on a PC.
2) Can RDI be used, if so which version/flavor? I don't use RDI but some
may, importing the Java tools.
3) Where does one store their Java source? Java source should be stored
on the PC that you were developing on. Once you start testing you will copy
your Java source along with other developer's source depending on how many
developers are are into an integration machine. Often there will be a check
in and check out using github or SVN which is integrated with the
development environment.
4) Any special tools used for Java deployment? Personally I don't use any
special tools, but it depends on what you are deploying and to where. If
it's a web application then you would make a WAR file using a tool within
the development environment. For cron jobs you would either create a jar
file or sometimes I copy the whole compiled class directory on to the
target machine.

We currently do not use any cm package.
