Running the Clients

Running the Application Client

To run the application client, follow these steps:

  1. In a terminal window, go to <INSTALL>/j2eetutorial14/examples/bank/.
  2. To run the English version of the client, execute the following command:
  3.   appclient -client DukesBankAppClient.jar

    The DukesBankAppClient.jar parameter is the name of the application client JAR file returned when you deployed DukesBankApp.

  4. To run the Spanish version, include the es language code:
  5.   appclient -client DukesBankAppClient.jar es

  6. At the login prompts, type bankadmin for the user name and j2ee for the password. The next thing you should see is the application shown in Figure 36-10.

Running the Web Client

To run the web client, follow these steps:

  1. Open the bank URL, http://localhost:8080/bank/main, in a web browser. To see the Spanish version of the application, set your browser language preference to any Spanish dialect.
  2. The application will display the login page. Enter 200 for the customer ID and j2ee for the password. Click Submit.
  3. Select an application function: Account List, Transfer Funds, ATM, or Logoff. When you have a list of accounts, you can get an account history by selecting an account link.

Note: The first time you select a new page, particularly a complicated page such as an account history, it takes some time to display because the Application Server must translate the page into a servlet class and compile and load the class.

If you select Account List, you will see the screen shown in Figure 36-11.
