Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo deploy an unpackaged application from a directory

This feature is for advanced developers.

A directory containing an unpackaged application or module is sometimes called an exploded directory. The contents of the directory must match the contents of a corresponding J2EE archive file. For example, if you deploy a Web application from a directory, the contents of the directory must be the same as a corresponding WAR file. For information about the required directory contents, see the appropriate specifications.

You can change the deployment descriptor files directly in the exploded directory.

If your environment is configured to use dynamic reloading, you can also dynamically reload applications deployed from the directory. For more information, see To configure dynamic reloading.

  1. In the Admin Console, begin the deployment process. See To deploy a web application.

  2. On the Deployment page, specify the following:

    1. Click the radio button to specify a package file or a directory path that must be accessible from the server.

    2. In the File Or Directory field, enter the name of the exploded directory.
