Deploying your Applications on WebSphere Application Server 7.0 (Part 1)

by Steve Robinson | August 2009 | Java

After installing an application server, we would want to deploy applications. Applications can be installed manually or in an automated fashion using scripts. In this two-part article by Steven Charles Robinson, we will cover how to manually deploy a J2EE (Enterprise Edition) application. As we walk through this article, we will show you how to deploy two applications. One application does not require database connectivity; the second is a database aware application which requires some WebSphere configuration to provide database connectivity to the application.

In this article, we will cover the following topics:

  • Application server internals
  • The web container
  • Virtual hosts
  • WebSphere ports
  • Data sources
