The WebSphere Enhanced EAR editor
The WebSphere Enhanced EAR editor is used to edit server configurations for WebSphere Application Server v6.0. The server configuration data that you specify in this editor gets embedded within the application itself. This improves the administration process of publishing to WebSphere Application Server v6.0 when installing a new application to an existing local or remote WebSphere Server by preserving the existing server configuration.
To locate the WebSphere Enhanced EAR editor:
Switch to the J2EE perspective.
In the Project Explorer view, expand the Enterprise Applications folder.
Under the enterprise application project folder for which you want to test the data source, double-click the Deployment Descriptor to open the Application Deployment Descriptor editor.
Select the Deployment tab at the bottom of the editor.
Setting up a server to test data sources for WebSphere Application Server v6.0
You can define data sources for a specific application for a remote or local WebSphere Application Server v6.0.
Adding resource adapters and connection factories to a WebSphere Application Server v6.0
Resource adapters are sets of related classes that let an application access a resource such as data, or an application on a remote server, often called an Enterprise Information System (EIS). When working with J2EE Connector (J2C) resource adaptors, formerly known as J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA), you have to add an instance of the J2C connection factory and configure its properties.
Setting class loader policy for an application on a WebSphere Application Server v6.0
You can define the class loader policy for a specific application for a WebSphere Application Server v6.0 remote or local server.
Adding substitution variables to a WebSphere Application Server v6.0
A substitution variable is a configuration property that can be used to provide a parameter for any value in a WebSphere Application Server v6.0 configuration. The variable has a name and a value to be used in place of that name wherever the variable name is located within the configuration files.
Adding JAAS authentication to a WebSphere Application Server v6.0
The Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) version 1.0 extends the Java 2 Security Architecture of the Java 2 Platform with additional support for authentication and for enforcing access control upon users. The development environment supports the JAAS architecture and extends the access control architecture to support role-based authorization for J2EE resources including servlet, JSP, and EJB components. JAAS maps an authenticated WebSphere user identity to a set of user authentication data (user ID and password) for a specified back-end Enterprise Information System (EIS).
Adding a shared library to a WebSphere Application Server v6.0
Shared library allows you to specify a container-wide list of library entries that is used when deploying an application.
Adding a virtual host alias to a WebSphere Application Server v6.0
You can configure virtual host aliases in conjunction with ports for a WebSphere Application Server v6.0. A virtual host is a single host machine to resemble multiple host machines. An alias is the domain name system (DNS) host name and port number used by a client to form the URL request for a Web application resource (such as a servlet, JSP or HTML page). For example, an alias is the "myhost:8080" portion of the URL http://myhost:8080/servlet/snoop.
