You can use the asadmin deploy or asadmin deploydir command to deploy or undeploy applications and individually deployed modules on local servers. For details, see the Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 2005Q2 Reference Manual. The asadmin deploydir command is available only on the default server instance.
To deploy a lifecycle module, see Deploying a Lifecycle Module.
On Windows, if you are deploying a directory on a mapped drive, you must be running the Application Server as the same user to which the mapped drive is assigned, or the Application Server won’t see the directory.
