Enable a Web services-enabled EAR file

Before doing this task, you need to Assemble a Web services-enabled EJB JAR into an enterprise archive (EAR) file.

You can add router modules to your Web services-enabled application, also known as an EAR file with the endptEnabler command or the Assembly Toolkit. The Assembly Toolkit replaces the Application Assembly Toolkit (AAT) and is a component of the Application Server Toolkit (ASTK) product.

These tools add one or more router modules to the EAR file for each EJB JAR module within the EAR file. A router module provides an endpoint for the Web services in a particular enterprise JavaBean (EJB) JAR module.

Each router module supports a specific transport such as HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP) or Java Messaging Service (JMS). If there are no EJB JAR modules in the EAR file, it is not necessary to use these tools.

  1. Enable an EAR file with the endptEnabler command-line tool.

  2. Enable an EAR file with the Assembly Toolkit.

Deploy the EAR file into WAS.
