Improved application development, Part 4: Building a Web client

Part 4 of the Improved Application Development series, which covers a development from end-to-end using Rational tools is now available. Written by Nate Schutta, it concentrates on extending the application to work on the web, using the powerful features of the Rational environment to make the developed as quick and easy as possible. Here’s the intro blurb:

In this tutorial, you’ll return to the Auction application that you developed in Part 2. You’ll add functionality to what you developed previously and connect to your entity beans via a Web-based front end. You’ll take advantage of leading-edge technologies like JavaServer Faces (JSF) and Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) to create a dynamic Web project — and, thanks to IBM Rational Application Developer’s powerful Web design features, you’ll hardly have to touch the keyboard.
