In the Administration Console, open the Applications component and go to the Lifecycle Modules page. For details, see the Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 Administration Guide.
Use the asadmin create-lifecycle-module command. For details, see the Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 Reference Manual.
You do not need to specify a classpath for the lifecycle module if you place it in the domain-dir/lib or domain-dir/lib/classes directory for the Domain Administration Server. Do not place it in the lib directory for a particular instance, or it will be deleted when that instance synchronizes with the Domain Administration Server.
After you deploy a lifecycle module, you must restart the server to activate it. The server instantiates it and registers it as a lifecycle event listener at server initialization.
