Preparing to host applications

Rather than use the default application server provided with the product, we can configure a new server and set of resources.

The default application server and a set of default resources are available to help begin quickly. We can choose instead to configure a new server and set of resources. Here is what we need to do in order to set up a runtime environment to support applications.

  1. Configure an application server.

  2. Create a virtual host.

  3. Configure a web container.

  4. Configure an EJB container.

  5. Create resources for data access.

  6. Create a JDBC provider and data source.

  7. Create a URL and URL provider.

  8. Create a mail session.

  9. Create resources for session support.

  10. Configure a Session Manager.

What to do next

Test the server and resources.
