Pinned topic Preserving a developers web session

‏2013-11-14T11:44:23Z |

One of the nice things about Websphere Developer Studio Client (for iSeries) was that when any of the java code changed, the developers web session was preserved, this meant that they could make an enhancement and see the effect without having to go through the web app's sign on process. ie, they weren't kicked out and have to log on again.

Has this mechanism been preserved - at the moment it appears not, but is it there but needs to be switched on? 

Many Thanks,

Matthew Jackson, Head of Technical Research, Riva Financial Systems.

    Can you clarify on which product are you trying comparing to?  Do you mean WDT, RAD or some other product? Also, what is the server that you are using, is it the full profile, liberty profile of WebSphere Application Server or some other servers?

    The product is called IBM Websphere Development Studio Client for iSeries,

    The url on its About page is

     

    http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/developer

    Its relativly old (2007) but it provides RPG development as well as Websphere java tools all in one box.  

    A quick look and the closest equivalent I can see is http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/dev-enterprise  

    What I think it makes it a bit different is that it actually has the WAS 6.1 server embedded into the IDE, ie when you deploy your application it doesn't go to the usual profiles/server1/applications folder, instead it goes somewhere else and maybe that's how it does the preserving session trick.

    Have you tried running the server in debug mode (and turn off automatic publishing within the tool if applicable)?
