Subject Is there a way to reverse engineer a WAR file for a struts app?
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2002 23:34:20 GMT
I have a WAR file for my struts app that I created from the JRE command
line with the 'jar' command. I then created an EAR file with the
Application Assembly tool in Websphere Application Server 4.0, then
deployed to WAS 4.0. My struts app was developed with Visual Age for Java
4.0 and tested with Tomcat. I now want to test with WAS 4.0 running on
Win2K, then once that works, will deploy to WAS 4.x on ZOS. While testing
with WAS 4.0 I got null pointer exceptions in areas of the code that worked
fine with Tomcat. So now it looks like I need a debugger to test with WAS
so I can step through the code and find out why the null pointer
exceptions. For this purpose, I installed Websphere Studio 4.0 with the
debugging tool. The question is does anyone know if I can turn my WAR file
into an application on Studio? In other words is there a way to 'reverse
engineer' a WAR file into an application that can be debugged?
The option of using Websphere Application Server from within VAJ is always
there I suppose, but that's WAS 3.5.3 and I specifically want to use WAS
Thanks in advance.
