can anyone please tell me why the sun people did not include the DeployTool in their latest release of the Application Server (9)???
or is it that they forgot to do that?

Deepak I don't know about the reason for not including the deploy tool like they did with J2EE 1.4, but I think you should use an IDE like eclipse or netbeans to create your Java EE programs...

I have never worked with earlier versions of Sun's app server. However, for 9, deployment of apps are managed with a web interface. Visit http://localhost:4848

Deepak,
What did the deploy tool do? Generate stubs/skeletons or actually deploy the app to the server. If the former, more happens at deploy time in JEE 5 so there isn't a need to pre-deploy.

@ Ankit: sure, that is possible i know! but i just wanted to try n learn deploying without any IDE to help me! (i'm just getting too much dependent on netbeans now i guess )

@ Chandra: it is the Admin Console to be more specific! i know it exists but i guess there you have option just to deploy the processed .war or .ear files! ( the deploy tool actually helped in organizing the physical structure of the application and also the most important, ejb-jar.xml

@ Jeanne: no, the deploy tool didnt' do that (the former).. it just, as i said above, helped us with the deployment descriptor file and creating the enterprise archive file!

of course we can do that with the help of the command window, but the GUI really helped!

Most people use Ant/Maven for creating ears these days. Maybe that's why they got rid of it?

Thanks!
I've heard about the Ant tool, though i still don't know (or better, i've still not learnt) how to use it ! (is there a tutorial available?)
and what is Maven about?

[and really is that the reason to get rid of that easy-to-learn-and-work-with GUI interface?]

The sites of both Maven and Ant contain tutorials. Maven is easier if your project is structured the "maven way."

A build tool is easier than a GUI in that you only have to write the build script once.

Note that we have a build forum further down in the list if you have any Ant or Maven questions.
