This article offered a technical introduction to working with WebSphere Application Server Community Edition V2.0, DB2 Express-C, and Eclipse with a sample database application development exercise. The exercise provided hands-on experience with:
- Installing and setting up the Community Edition, DB2 Express-C, and Eclipse environments.
- Creating database artifacts required for the application.
- Developing a sample database application in Eclipse.
- Deploying the sample database application on Community Edition.
See the Resources section for a deeper understanding of these products, and experiment further by deploying the sample applications available from the Community Edition download page, and with your own test applications.
