Editing applications

You can edit deployed applications through the administrative console, the wsadmin tool, or by programming. Use this example to edit a deployed application through programming.

 

Before you begin

This task assumes a basic familiarity with MBean programming. For information on MBean programming, see MBean Java application programming interface (API) documentation.

Before you can edit an application on WebSphere Application Server, first install the application.

 

About this task

Perform the following tasks to edit your deployed application.

 

Procedure

  1. Connect to WebSphere Application Server.

  2. Create the application management proxy.

  3. Get information about an installed application.

  4. Manipulate task data as necessary.

  5. Save changes for the installed application.

 

Results

After you successfully run the code, the application is edited.

 

Example

The following example shows how to edit an application, based on the previous steps.
