Network Deployment (Distributed operating systems), v8.0 > Develop and deploying applications
- Install enterprise application files
As part of deploying an application, you install application files on a server configured to hold installable modules.
- Install enterprise application files with the console
Install Java EE application files consists of placing assembled enterprise application, Web, enterprise bean (EJB), or other installable modules on a server or cluster configured to hold the files. Installed files that start and run properly are considered deployed.
- Install enterprise application files by adding them to a monitored directory
We can install an enterprise application file on an application server or cluster by dragging or copying an EAR, WAR, JAR, or SAR to a monitored directory. An enterprise application file must conform to the Java EE specification.
- Install enterprise application files by adding properties files to a monitored directory
We can use application properties files to install enterprise application files on a server or cluster, update deployed applications or modules, or uninstall deployed applications or modules. Drag or copy a properties file to a monitored directory and the product performs the deployment action described in the properties file. The enterprise application files that you can install, update, or uninstall using properties files include EAR, WAR, JAR, and SAR files. An enterprise application file must conform to the Java EE specification.
- Install enterprise modules with JSR-88
We can install Java EE modules on an application server provided by a WAS product using the Java EE Application Deployment API specification (JSR-88).
- Customize modules using DConfigBeans
We can configure Java EE applications or stand-alone modules during deployment using the DConfigBean class in the Java EE Application Deployment API specification (JSR-88).
