How to test Websphere application on local machine ?
Posted on 2013-05-29
I'm working through getting RAD-7 set up on my machine, now need to make a change to an application and test it locally.
RAD-7 seems fine, including WAS 6.1 and 7.0 servers which start fine. I also have a data connection that tests ok.
Now I just need to run the application on my machine, but no idea what the URL is. Also, I'm not sure how my application actually uses the data connection I set up . . . I see jndiName="jdbc/EDW" in file ibm-web-bnd.xmi.
oh - in the Admin console for my server, I have no "Web Serves", but I do have an "Application Server", so not sure about that.
the application itself runs in Production on two other machines, using Tomcat. It runs fine but right at the moment we run a risk that the application is unsupported.
Plus I think if I make a change, I need to "publish" this to the WAS server.
It's been 2 years since I set this up, and I don't do this on a regular basis . . . but I've made some progress so far.
