EGL for Web Applications

Enterprise Generation Language (EGL) is a development environment and programming language that lets you write full-function web applications. The complexity of Java and J2EE are hidden so that the focus lies on the business problem rather than on software technologies. After coding the EGL program, a generation step leads to the creation of Java sources and classes, ready for deployment to a J2EE compliant server.

This course is available for one-company, on-site presentations.


On successful completion of this course you will be able to:

  • use the Enterprise Generation Language (EGL) development environment of IBM's WebSphere Studio for web applications
  • use the different definition elements of EGL by means of practical exercises
  • structure and debug these applications efficiently
  • prepare applications for the deployment process.

Who Should Attend

Application programmers who are going to develop web-based applications using EGL.


Participants should have a basic knowledge of Servlets and JavaServer Pages (see course J2EE: distributed Java - servlets and JSP). An understanding of relational DBMS concepts will also be helpful.
