Considering a short period of web application development these day, it is necessary to adopt a new design and development model which enhance development productivity. As is usual, application developers need to take care of both HTTP protocol and complicated business flow. This is one of the major cause of decline in development productivity. Therefore a new design and development model is expected to solve this problem. To solve this problem, we provide WebSphere Application Components, that is called "WACs". We mention three major advantage which WACs offers. -First, WACs provides a runtime environment in which all business components are executed. -Second, WACs provides so called "Page Class. Thanks to Page Class, business components can refer all data in client web-browser without taking care of HTTP protocol. -And last of all , applications which are executed on WACs can be coped with the changes of business procedures easily, because most of them are defined in some external property files. WACs provides the following two programs. a runtime environment This is called "WACs container". All business components are executed in this container controlled by some property files. two development support tools . One is called "JSP support tool". The other is called "property files support tool ".
