What is an Enterprise Application Project?
Enterprise application projects is Module Packaging System that can contain a combination of Web modules, JAR files, connector modules, EJB modules, and application client modules. An enterprise application project is deployed in the form of an EAR file.
What is an EAR(Enterprise Archive)?
An Enterprise Archive, or EAR, is a file format used by Java EE for packaging one or more modules into a single archive so that the deployment of the various modules onto an application server happens simultaneously and coherently. It also contains XML files called deployment descriptors which describe how to deploy the modules. Maven or Ant can be used to build EAR files.
In this Post we are going to Learn how we can create Enterprise Application Project (EAR) for WebSphere Application Server v6.0 at Localhost in IBM RAD 7.5.
Prerequisite: IBM RAD 7.5 installed in his/her machine.
Step1: Open IBM RAD 7.5
- Go to File->New->Others…
Step2: One Window will Pop-Up as Shown in the screen below:
- Select Java EE->Enterprise Application Project.
- Click Next.
Step3: New EAR Application Project Wizard will Open as Shown below in the Screen Shot.
Enter Project Name
Select Target Runtime
Select EAR Version
And Select the Configuration
Step4: Select Java EE Module Dependencies i.e. the Web Modules (WAR File).
- Click Next.
Step5: You had created the Enterprise Application Project (EAR) for WebSphere Application Server v6.0 at Localhost in IBM RAD 7.5 as Shown in the Screen below:
The Creation of Enterprise Application Project (EAR) for WebSphere Application Server v6.0 at Localhost is same as mentioned above in IBM RAD 6.0, RAD 7.0 and RAD 8.0.
