Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 Developer's Guide

ProcedureTo deploy an application client

  1. Assemble the necessary client files.

  2. Assemble the EJB components to be accessed by the client.

  3. Package the client and EJB components together in an application.

  4. Deploy the application as described in Tools for Deployment.

  5. Retrieve the client JAR file.

    The client JAR file contains the ties and necessary classes for the ACC client.

    You can use the --retrieve option to get the client JAR file.

    You can also use the asadmin get-client-stubs command to retrieve the stubs and ties whether or not you requested their generation during deployment. For details, see the Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 Reference Manual.

  6. Copy the client JAR file to the client machine, and set the APPCPATH environment variable on the client to point to this JAR.

Next Steps

To execute the client on the Application Server machine to test it, use the appclient script in the install-dir/bin directory.The only required option is -client. For example:

appclient -client converterClient.jar

The -xml parameter specifies the location of the sun-acc.xml file.
