Enterprise application settings

Use this page to configure an enterprise application. From the console...

   Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications > application_name .

If we have a JAX-WS web service application installed, you also can click Services > Service providers > service_name or Services > Service clients > service_name .

If an application is running, changing an application setting causes the application to restart. On stand-alone servers, the application restarts after you save the change. On multiple-server products, the application restarts after you save the change and files synchronize on the node where the application is installed.

To control when synchronization occurs on multiple-server products, On the Console preferences page, deselect...

Application reference validation

Whether the product examines the application references specified during application installation or updating and, if validation is enabled, warns you of incorrect references or fails the operation.

An application typically refers to resources using data sources for container managed persistence (CMP) beans or using resource references or resource environment references defined in deployment descriptors. The validation checks whether the resource referred to by the application is defined in the scope of the deployment target of that application.

The resource can be defined on the server, its node, cell or the cluster if the server belongs to a cluster. Select Don't validate for no resource validation, Issue warnings for warning messages about incorrect resource references, or Stop installation if validation fails to stop operations that fail as a result of incorrect resource references.

This Application reference validation setting is the same as the Validate input off/warn/fail field on the application installation and update wizards.
