EJB design: J2EE Beginner Help!

  1. J2EE Beginner Help! (2 messages)

    I am facing these problems please help:
    --------------------------------------
    NOTE: This is concerning Weblogic 6.0 or higher and Windows Operating System
    --------------------------------------
    Our company was into Java based web application designs and development. Recently most of us are laid off due to change in technology i.e shifting to ERP and software re-engineering in J2EE Technology. Help me with these doubts:

    1. What editor or IDE or tools can be used to develop ejb programs. Are these tools used in real life projects of companies?

    2. What is the standard project designing tools used for UML designing?

    3. What are the testing tools usually used in any EJB or J2EE Development?

    4. Can IBM visual Studio be used for development of programs for weblogic App Server?

    Also please email me in gainingam@yahoo.com

    Probably the most popular are (not in any particular order):
      Free/OpenSource:
        Eclipse
        NetBeans
      Commercial:
        Sun ONE Studio (formerly known as Forte for Java)
        IBM WebSphere Application Developer Studio
        Borland JBuilder
        IntelliJ IDEA

    All of these IDEs are used in real-world projects and all of them have some kind of support/wizards for EJB development.

    I would say Rational Rose and TogetherSoft ControlCenter. Both cost a lot of $$$.

    JUnit is used frequently for unit testing. There are also some open source projects for testing code running inside a web/ejb container, such as JUnitEE or Cactus. Tools like Mercury TestDirector can be used to manage testing on a bigger scale.

    Yes you can, but you won't be able to use those high-priced features that you paid for.
