With this book you will:*Discover how easy it is to visually build applications that run as JavaServer Faces Web applications, Java applets, or Java applications*Quickly become comfortable using Rational Application Developer features such as visual editors, the debugger, and test facilities*Learn to build advanced application features, such as adding Ajax behaviour to JavaServer Faces Web applications to make Web pages more interactive and usable, working with relational databases, and using XML data in Java applicationsThe authors explain Java programming concepts hand-in-hand with Rational Application Developer. You'll find detailed, step-by-step instructions with lots of screen captures to make it easy to follow along. Each chapter develops at least one complete, stand-alone application, applet, or servlet, with sample code and solution files provided on CD-ROM (included). And, while most books teach how to use either a development tool or a particular programming language, this book combines learning the language with using the tool. Exercises are included at the end of each chapter to reinforce the concepts.
