Hi I am working as J2EE Developer and working with JBoss app server since last 3 yrs.I am going to place in project which uses WebSphere and client want to interview me on J2EE and WebSphere skills for that I have 2 weeks time.
I want to know from you guys as a J2EE Developer which are Webspehre skills are required.
I am developing EJBs using MyEclispe and able to deploy my application to WebSphere with MyEclipse.Is it sufficient for a Developer ?
I think as Admin its expected to configure/fine tune WAS.Do I need to learn any thing else as a Developer ??
IBM has the development tools known as RAD (Rapid Application Developer) or RSA (Rapid Software Architect, which are basically an extension of eclipse with integrated Websphere Application Server and other bells and whistles like EJB support, etc. http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/r/rad/
Having said, lack of Websphere experience should not be the detrmining factor at the interview. It should be based on your JEE knowledge, skills, and experience. Once you know a particular application server, you can learn another one relatively quickly. Some organizations, do have a separate middleware team that is responsible for configuring and deploying to application servers.
