Folder Structure for J2EE applications
Posted on 2005-03-04
I am new to websphere and I am not very sure about how the ear file is deployed on this server. From what I understand on J2EE, the ear file structure is supposed to be like this:
My War structure is like this:
-- other folders like scripts, styles, tiles(i am working on a struts application)
--Contains the struts tld.
I have been working on Iplanet app server and in this server it is possible to include the ejb files in the ear file and the stub and skeletal classes are generated on deployment.
However, I am not sure about how the ejb folder structure should be in the ejb jar file in websphere.
what are the various classs files that are supposed to be in this jar(bean, remote,etc) and how does the websphere application server generate the stubs and skeletal classes for the ejb. Does it generate on deployment or we have to generate is before deployment, package the generated class files in a jar file for the ejb.
Basically I would like to know the what the entire folder structure of a EAR file should be and its sub components and their folder structure. How are the ejb's compiled, the entire deployment process. I am totally lost as of now and if any one could help me, I would be grateful to that person.
Thanks in advance.
