Developing Web Applications using Java Studio Creator
(Page 1 of 5 )

A downloadable zip file is available for this article.

The entire solution (source code) for this article is available as a free download (in the form of a zip).  All the applications in this series have been developed using Sun Java Studio Creator 2 (Update 1) on Windows Server 2003 standard edition. I used Sun Java System Application Server 8.1, which gets installed along with Java Studio Creator to deploy and test web applications. I didn't really test any of the code in any other tools/IDEs/servers/editions/versions. If you have any problems, please feel free to post in the discussion area.

Sun Java Studio Creator: a cute IDE for developing web-based Java applications

I already introduced several Java tools (or IDEs) in my first article available at http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/Java/Developing-Java-Applications-using-NetBeans/.  If you are new to Java and want to select any tool, I suggest you go through the first two sections of that article.  One of the tools not discussed in that article is "Eclipse," another top IDE for Java. 

I already contributed several articles related to developing applications (including database applications) using NetBeans IDE on this same web site (and plan to contribute more). In this series, I would like to consider Sun Java Studio Creator as the primary IDE for developing web applications. Java Studio Creator is a build on NetBeans 4.x and includes the latest features of Java such as JSF (Java Server Faces), access to any database, streamlined IDE based application model, and more. When we install the tools, it automatically installs JDK (Java Development Kit), Sun Java System Application Server 8.1 Platform Edition and a sample database. The most amazing point is that the applications can be developed with no knowledge of configuration or deployment.

If you have any external JSF components, you can simply configure them using drag-and-drop. Apart from all of the above, it also includes Query Editor, CSS Editor, Web Services Development and even the astonishing JSP/EJB. One important issue to keep in mind is that it can be used only for web application (or portlet) development using technologies such as JSP, EJB and so on. Those who are familiar with VS.NET (and have a little background in Java web development) can start working with this IDE in almost no time.

As this series concentrates on developing web applications using Java, I would like to use Sun Java Studio Creator.  You can download it for free from http://developers.sun.com/prodtech/devtools/index.html.
