Enterprise application collection

Use this page to view and manage enterprise applications.

This page lists installed J2EE enterprise applications. System applications, which are central to the product, are not shown in the list because users cannot edit them. Examples of system applications include adminconsole and filetransfer.

To view this administrative console page, click...

Applications | Enterprise Applications

To view the values specified for an application's configuration, click the application name in the list. The displayed application settings page shows the values specified. On the settings page, one can change existing configuration values and link to additional console pages that assist you in configuring the application.

To manage an installed J2EE enterprise application, enable the Select check box beside the application name in the list and click a button:

Button Resulting action
Start Attempts to run the application. After the application starts up successfully, the state of the application changes to Started if the application starts up on all deployment targets, else the state changes to Partial Started.
Stop Attempts to stop the processing of the application. After the application stops successfully, the state of the application changes to Stopped if the application stops on all deployment targets, else the state changes to Partial Stopped.
Install Opens a wizard that helps you deploy an application or a module such as a .jar, .war or .rar file onto a server or a cluster.
Uninstall Deletes the application from the WAS configuration repository and deletes the application binaries from the file system of all nodes where the application modules are installed after the configuration is saved and synchronized with the nodes.
Update Opens a wizard that helps you update application files deployed on a server. You can update the full application, a single module, a single file, or part of the application. If a new file or module has the same name as a file or module already existing on the server, the new file or module replaces the existing file or module. If the new file or module does not exist on the server, it is added to the deployed application.
Rollout Update Sequentially updates an application installed on multiple cluster members across a cluster. After you update an application's files or configuration, click Rollout Update to install the application's updated files or configuration on all cluster members of a cluster on which the application is installed. Rollout Update does the following for each cluster member in sequence:

  1. Saves the updated application configuration.

  2. Stops all of the cluster members on one node.

  3. Updates the application on the node by synchronizing the configuration.

  4. Restarts the stopped cluster members.

  5. Repeats steps 2 through 4 for all of the nodes that have cluster members.

This action updates an application on multiple cluster members while providing continuous availability of the application.

Remove File Deletes a file of the deployed application or module. Remove File deletes a file from the WAS configuration repository and from the file system of all nodes where the file is installed. If the application or module is deployed on a cluster, after removing a file click Rollout Update to roll out the changes across the entire cluster.
Export Accesses the Export Application EAR files page, which you use to export an enterprise application to an EAR file at a location of your choice. Use the Export action to back up a deployed application and to preserve its binding information.
Export DDL Accesses the Export Application DDL files page, which you use to export DDL files (Table.ddl) in the EJB modules of an enterprise application to a location of your choice.
