Product Description: Get your RPG or COBOL applications on the Web in Under One Day! Get WebFacing up and running, using Tomcat on your iSeries. There is no software to buy, no recoding, no Java, no HTML, no JavaScript, and no CGI or complicated APIs. Many iSeries shops want to get started with WebFacing, but don't have a version of WebSphere Application Server (WAS) on their iSeries. Fortunately, there is a no-charge alternative to WAS that ships with OS/400: the Tomcat server. Tomcat is provided as part of the IBM HTTP Server for iSeries Licensed Program Product. Using Tomcat, you can run the servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP) that are generated from WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries when you create a WebFacing application. WebFacing Now! Tomcat Edition takes you step-by-step through the installation and configuration process. It covers converting DDS screens into WebFacing code in the Tomcat Test Environment on your PC. You'll then see how to configure, start and test Tomcat on your iSeries and bring up your new web apps served from your iSeries in your PC browser. Your users will stand up and applaud! What you need: OS/400 V5R1M0, OS/400 V5R2M0, or OS/400 V5R3M0 and Tomcat 3.2.4 (shipped as part of Licensed Program Product 5722-DG1, IBM HTTP Server). You will also need one of the following IBM development tools for your PC: WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries, version 5.0, WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition for iSeries, version 5.0, WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries, version 5.1, or WebSphere Development Studio Client Advanced Edition for iSeries, version 5.1. Note: WDSCi 5.0 or WDSCi 5.1 are shipped with the IBM Licensed Program Product, 5722-WDS WebSphere Development ToolSet. If you have the RPG or COBOL compiler installed on your iSeries, you should also have a copy of the PC tools. You will get a step-by-step manual with these sections: 1. Install WDSCi on your PC - complete instructions to install and configure the toolset you'll use for WebFacing. 2. Install and configure the Java Development Kit and Tomcat on your PC. This configuration provides the support for testing your WebFacing application in the WDSCi test environment. 3. Convert DDS screens to WebFacing applications - a step-by-step guide to using the WebFacing tool in WDSCi to convert the sample DDS screens. 4. Configure an HTTP Server (powered by Apache) and Tomcat on the iSeries - a "how-to" guide to configure Tomcat on the iSeries to run your WebFacing application. 5. Export and run your WebFacing application - how to copy (export) your WebFacing code from your PC to Tomcat on the iSeries, and how to get your WebFacing application up and running on the iSeries. You will get a CD-ROM with example source code and other required code: Complete RPG and DDS source code for the examples, Sun Java Development Kit (version, used for the Tomcat test environment, and Tomcat server (version 3.2.4) for Windows so that you can quickly configure your PC test environment. You will need to: Install and configure WDSCi on your PC, connect to your iSeries from WDSCi, convert DDS screens to WebFacing applications, install and work with the Tomcat test environment on your PC, export (copy) your WebFacing application from your PC to your iSeries IFS, configure and run Tomcat on your iSeries, and install and work with your WebFacing application, served from your iSeries. Upon completion you'll be able to: work with WDSCi on your PC to create WebFacing applications, configure and work with the HTTP server and Tomcat on your iSeries, create WebFacing applications using your programs and DDS display files, work with WDSCi and the IFS to export your WebFacing applications from the PC to your iSeries, and run your programs as WebFacing applications in your browser, served from Tomcat on your iSeries.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
