About this Guide

This guide has been written for developers who will be using LANSA Integrator, in particular, the Java Service Manager, to interact with Java classes (programs). A detailed knowledge of Java is not required if you are a LANSA developer and will be using the Java classes shipped with the Java Service Manager.
RDML programming knowledge is a prerequisite.
It is assumed that you have some knowledge of the target operating system (for example i5/OS, Windows or Linux).
If you are developing your own services or Java classes, you must have a working knowledge of Java.

If you are not familiar with LANSA Integrator and the Java Service Manager, begin by reviewing the Introduction to LANSA Integrator.

To learn how to start and configure the Java Service Manager, review the Java Service Manager Administration.

If you are executing the Java Service Manager using the shipped services, review the Java Service Manager Clients and the Java Service Manager Services.

To see the Services shipped with LANSA go to Java Service Manager Services. You can, of course, write your own services and how to do so is described in Create Your Own Services.

If you are designing Java classes or tuning an existing application, review Performance and Tuning.

If you encounter any problems during the installation, refer to Troubleshooting.

This guide contains a mixture of detailed technical/user information for Java developers who are writing their own services, and LANSA developers who are using the shipped services. If you are a LANSA developer, you will not require the more technical Java details on interfaces, classes and so on.
