Program guide > (deprecated) Partitioning facility
Deprecated feature: The partitioning facility (WPF) feature is deprecated. You can configure partitioning with WebSphere eXtreme Scale.
The Extended Deployment installation process installs 14 example partitioned Java™ 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. These applications are located in the <WAS_install_root>\installableApps directory. Most examples have two versions, a non-deployed example with the source included and a fully deployed and updated stub version. The partitioning facility requires a post ejbdeploy stub update step.
To view the code, you can import each partitioned J2EE application into Rational Application Developer (RAD), and look over the session bean implementation. The partitioned J2EE applications with the same name, but prefixed with a D_*, are ready for installation. When installing:
- Do not select to run the deployment step during the installation.
- Follow the basic steps in the tutorial.
As a reminder, every partitioning facility (WPF) partitioned J2EE application must be deployed normally after it is written. However, this application requires an additional step. Each application must have follow-on processing to update the generated stubs for this version of the product. The utility to perform this task is wpfstubutil, and it is documented in the section of this document dedicated to programming. If this tool is not used, the normal round-robin session bean method runs across all available servers.
