A resource group is a named collection of (typically) related deployable resources, such as Java EE applications and the data sources, JMS artifacts, and other resources that applications use. Resource groups are a convenient way to group together Java EE applications and the resources they use into a distinct administrative unit within the domain. The resources and applications are "fully qualified" in that the administrator provides all the information needed to start or connect to those resources, including credentials for connecting to a data source and targeting information for Java EE applications. All the resources in or referenced by a resource group are targeted together (to the same target).
You can create a resource group at the domain level, or specific to a partition. You can create the resource group in two ways:
To create a resource group for an existing partition:
After you finish
Creating a new resource group provides only the basic structure. You must now edit this resource group as needed. See Configure resource groups at the partition level for the steps to follow.
If you created the resource group from a resource group template, edit and override the resource group settings as needed. See Configuring Resource Group Templates for more information.
