As a proof of concept, I have been working with the Java Server Faces (JSF) application provided in Rational Application Developer (RAD) v8.0.x. I have gotten to the point of creating JPA Entities.
As such, I have found this bug in Rational Application Developer v9.0.1 or an error in the RedBook JSF Example presented in the Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software V8 Programming Guide Vol. 3.
When I create the JPA entities as outlined by the RAD Programming Guide, no Transaction Entity created. I have tried to report this for some time now. However, I may be getting close to being able to describe what I am seeing. I have tried this with both DB2 Express-C and a trial version of DB2 Express.
It may be a shame that IBM put so much money in creating RAD for its simplification for the developer. However, most developers seem to be more knowledgeable that I am. Once I get something to work with the Wizards, I generally begin to understand more the technical aspects of what is actually being accomplished by the physical code.
As I was creating this topic, I decided to copy the Transaction Entity from the RedBook code into the project that I am attempting to recreate by following the RedBook to create the JSF project step by step.
So now the question that I am asking is "Why doesn't RAD v9.0 allowing me to create the Transaction Entity?".
If anyone knows why, please let me know I will be truly grateful.
