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.
- Configure an application server.
- Create a virtual host.
- Configure a web container.
- Configure an EJB container.
- Create resources for data access.
- Create a JDBC provider and data source.
- Create a URL and URL provider.
- Create a mail session.
- Create resources for session support.
- Configure a Session Manager.
What to do next
