Creating a server and server configuration
A server identifies the run-time environment that you want to use for testing your project resources. A server configuration contains information that is required to set up and publish to a server.
To create a server and configuration manually:
In the J2EE Hierarchy view, right-click the Servers folder and then select New > Server and Server Configuration.
The Create a New Server and Server Configuration wizard opens. This wizard creates a new server and configuration at the same time.
Follow the instructions in the wizard to specify the details of the server and server configuration that you want to create.
In the Server type list, on the Create a new server and server configuration page of the wizard, select the type of environment where you want to test your resources. For more details on each of the supported server types, select a type from the list and read the description that appears in the Description area of this wizard page.
Depending on what server type you select, the server configuration type is automatically selected for you.
Depending on what server type you select, the Next button may be enabled so that you can specify more details on the additional pages of the wizard.
Click Finish. The new server and configuration folder appear under the Servers project folder in the J2EE Hierarchy view. The server also appears in the Servers view and the Server Configuration view, if they are opened. The server tools automatically set the new server to use the new configuration.
