Subject: [SAS 8.2,W2000] AppDev Studio
I would like to make sure if I understood everything clearly
(http://support.sas.com/rnd/appdev/products.htm) so please correct me if I
AppDev Studio consists of number of components. I see in my setinit that we
have required components licensed (we have exactly: 'BASE' 'GRAPH' 'ETS'
'FSP' 'AF' 'OR' 'IML' 'SHARE' 'QC' 'STAT' 'INSIGHT' 'TOOLKIT' 'ASSIST'
'CONNECT' 'LAB' 'EIS' 'WAREHOUSE' 'PC File Formats' 'GIS' 'ODBC' 'SHARE*NET'
'OnlineTutor: SAS Programming' 'MDDB Server' 'IntrNet Compute Services'
'MDDB Server common products' 'AppDev Studio' 'Integration Technologies').
If I understood well AppDev studio allow me to access sas datasets from JSP
pages by JDBC driver or specialized classes (not sure that) and/or invoke
sas scripts (not really sure this - I saw Submit bean).
But how about webAF, webEIS (front-components) and/or AppDev Studio
Middleware Server (communication component)? Our license does not include
them (?). Can I handle SAS data from JSP pages? (I would like to gain MDDB
Report Functionality from within JSP page) What exactly is AppDev Studio and
webAF (separate ide, tool)? (webAF is interesting for me after samples
review) Do we have to buy (get licensed) other components? I have 7CDs
containing SAS 8.2. I will ask my superior if we have any other (=more CDs),
but rather we do not.
And the last questions. I am most interested in web-based OLAP.
So I am interested in webAF (AppDev part (?)) and JSP (I know it). Are I
goining into the right direction? (CGI is slow and dispatcher does not seem
to be flexible and fast) How do your web-based OLAP solutions look like?
I have made "complete" install and could not find webAF. I am new to SAS and
maybe I overlooked something.
Sorry for asking stupid questions but I have lost in plenty of SAS
components. Thanks in advance for your patience.
