Deploying J2EE Session EJBs

The successfully packaged session EJB contains all the information needed to successfully deploy or download your enterprise application to your selected application server. Once deployed, the Deployment Status page indicates the status of the deployment.

Deployment options are set on the Choose Deployment Options and choose Deploy Download Options panels of the New / Edit J2EE Session EJB Wizard. Click Help on each panel for detailed information on the options available.

Deployment options are the same regardless of the type of application server you use; however, the finish action options vary. Automatic deployment is available only with WebLogic and SunOne application servers. If you are using WebSphere or Oracle application servers, you must download the EAR file and manually deploy the application.

Note Whether you automatically deploy, or download and manually deploy the application, you must deploy both the connector RAR and EJB JAR files in order to successfully use your session EJB. For OracleAS deployments, the EJB JAR and connector RAR files are bundled together as an application EAR file.
