Access data from applications


WebSphere Application Server provides several options for accessing Enterprise Information System (EIS) backend databases.

Programming steps include:

  1. Develop data access applications

    Develop your application to access data using the various ways available through the WAS. You can access data through APIs, container-managed persistence beans, bean-managed persistence beans, session beans, or Web components.

  2. Assemble data access applications using the Assembly Toolkit.

    Assemble your application by creating and mapping resource references.

  3. Deploy data access applications

    Ensure that the appropriate database objects are available. Create or configure any databases or tables required, set necessary configuration parameters to handle expected load, and configure any necessary JDBC providers and data source objects for servlets, enterprise beans, and client applications to use.
