Java Frameworks Integration
My Java workspace (Part 2)
As web container, I use the most well known Tomcat, it is well integrated
in Eclipse. Other can be used also such as Jetty, Resin... As I use Spring I never had the need to use an Application Server
such as JBoss, JRun, WebLogic, WebSphere... or the functionality related to them.
I never used EJB Container except
for my own learning study. An EJB container manages EJBs and provides an easy way to access them via RMI. As my applications
are based on Spring, WebServices, Hibernate, I don't need to use EJB.
I use SVN (SubVersion) as versioning system,
it is easy to install and it is integrated with a lot of other product. A plugin exists for Eclipse.
tracking tools, I suggest to use JIRA. JIRA and SVN are integrated, you can track a defect and link this defect with a version of
your code in SVN just by adding a comment while you check-in your code.
To build my application or any package
of my application, I use Maven. Maven helps you to manage your dependencies and their version. It also helps you to deploy your package
in a sharable repository and then each developers can retreive a given package version from this repository.
