Hi Kylie, Normally i have created a TestServer and worked on it. Is it possible to work with a remote server within my WSAD .Can you explain the following.. 1)Express server 2)Express Test Environment 3)Server 4)Test Environment 5)Express Server Attach 6)Server Attach Rishi SCJP,SCWCD,IBM/OOAD
Hi Rishi, You can create more than 1 testing server in WSAD. It can be done by right clicking on the Server tag inside the Task console. Or, whenever you run a module, WSAD will ask you whether run your application in the testing server, or you create a new one. Besides, for the 6 items you listed, I think the 1st four are referring to the same or similar objects:
1)Express server 2)Express Test Environment 3)Server 4)Test Environment
The Express server is simply the testing server provided by WSAD. And the testing environment (you can test your J2EE applications without a real WebSphere installed) refers to the environment provided by the testing server that simulates the situation that you deploy your applications into the real WS server. But I have not heard about the last 2 items, sorry that I cannot help in that. Nick.
A bit of a correction. 1. WebSphere Express is a "web container" only application server. 2. A Test Environment, refers to a runtime that is installed as part of WebSphere Studio (contrasting to a Server which refers to an installed runtime at some other location (perhaps remote). A Server is intended to be controlled (started and stopped) via the Studio server controls. 3. The final class of servers are designed to "attach" to a server that is controlled independently of WebSphere Studio. Your choice has to do mostly with who owns the test platform you need to work with. And as pointed out, you may define many several "servers" and choose the one you will work with at any given point in time.

Hi Craig, Please correct me if iam wrong. As per you the Test Server only simulates the actual WS Server on which the application has to be deployed finally and it gives once a chance to start/stop it through WSAD. In case if i want to test my application on a Remote Server I have to create an "Attach Server". In this case is it possible to start/stop the remote server through WSAD. Rishi SCJP,SCWCD,IBM/OOAD
