Shared library collection

Use this page to define a list of shared library files that deployed applications can use. To view this console page, click Environment > Shared libraries.

Change the scope to see what shared libraries are in a particular node or server. By default, a shared library is accessible to applications deployed (or installed) on the same node as the shared library file. To change the scope, select the cell, a node, or a server under Scope.

On a multiple-server product, you also can select a cluster. To see the cluster scope, you first must create a cluster on the Server clusters page (Servers > Clusters > WebSphere application server clusters). The cluster scope limits the scope of a shared library to cluster members of a particular cluster.

Select a scope before you click New and create a shared library. After creating a shared library and map an application to the selected scope, we can associate the shared library with the application or its modules.
