Suggestions about how to work
Posted on 2004-04-29
I would like to know how you hava set up your work enviornment.
We are a small company that usually works with ASP, but are now to start a project in JSP/J2EE.
I have a server running and have done some coding to get a feel for how things are to be put together. To just spell it out, I am a bit confused.
I used to work as a java coder, so I am familiar with the language, but not with jsp and the concepts of deploying the applications on the server.
For my small tests I've used emacs to code and then 'deploytool' to get the code to the server. Now this seems like a very painfull process to do for every small change in a jsp page. I've noticed that it is possible to alter the files directly in the server hierarcy also.
So, how do you guys work with the project files: updating the war for every change or manipulate the files where the server uses them or some other method. What kind of editors are good. I took a look at JBuilder, but it's kind of expensive... Is it good for this?
Thanks for stopping by,
