Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
I’ve posted a new course which covers some of the changes in Java EE 6 and WebSphere 8.0. WA2084 What’s New in WebSphere 8.0 and Java EE 6 will be a one day lecture-only class covering the following: Changes in Java EE 6 Changes in JSF 2.0 Overview of Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) What’s

Install Download and extract the ZIP file somewhere, say C:\Program Files\JES. Open the file bin/ntservice.bat using Notepad. Set the JES_HOME_DIR variable to the root of the install folder.
Rational Application Developer (RAD) 7.5 supports only up to Struts 1.3. I do not anticipate IBM to support Struts 2.0 any time soon. Adding Struts 2.0 to a web project is not rocket science but it can take up a bit of time. You need to assemble the right JAR files and create struts.xml in
