How to package 2 beans and two clients with Sun One Application Server 8.2?
posted 8 years ago
I have a question on how to package two beans into one distributable jar file and also provide the two associated test clients - each in its own jar file. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. This is what I'm trying to do:
I am using the deploy tool that is packaged with Sun One Application Server 8.2. I currently have two stateless session beans deployed to a J2EE 1.4 Sun One Application Server and a test application client for each bean. For each bean, I created a j2ee application (ear) file and packaged the EJB JAR file containing the bean's classes and deployment descriptor, and an application client. I followed the steps as outlined in Sun�s ConverterApp example in their j2ee tutorial. (The example is from chapter 24 in the j2eetutorial14 � example ejb/converter) Upon deploying, the tool returns a client jar file that you can then use to call the bean. I have been able to successfully execute both beans in this manner.
Now, for distribution, I need to package both of the beans in one jar file and also provide a separate jar file for each test client, but I don�t see how to use the deploy utility to do this. Can anyone suggest what would be the best (fastest) way to do this? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
