Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 2005Q2 Developer's Guide

Sample Applications

Sample applications that you can examine and deploy are included with the full installation of the Application Server. You can also download these samples separately if you installed the Application Server without them initially.

If installed with the Application Server, the samples are in the install-dir/samples directory. The samples are organized in categories such as ejb, jdbc, connectors, i18n, and so on. Each sample category is further divided into subcategories. For example, under the ejb category are stateless, stateful, security, mdb, bmp, and cmp subcategories.
