Follow the steps below to install the application on a WebSphere server. You must supply the application WAR file to deploy.

  1. Install WebSphere by following the vendor's instructions.
  2. If you have not already done so, create a WAR file containing the replets you wish to deploy.
  3. Run the WebSphere Administrative Console (default, http://local­host:9090/admin) and log into it.
  4. On the left side of the screen, expand the 'Applications' option, and click on 'New Application'.
  5. On the 'New Application' page, select 'New Enterprise Application'.
  6. In the 'Path to New Application' panel, select the 'Local File System' option, and type the location of the WAR file in the 'Full Path' field (C:\warwork\sree\sree.war in the example below), or use the 'Browse' feature to locate the file. Click 'Next'.
  7. Under 'How do you want to install the application?', select 'Fast Path'. Click 'Next'.
  8. On the 'Select installation options' page, set the 'Application name' to match the WAR file name. (In the example, the 'Application name' is 'sree' because the WAR file is 'sree.war'). Click 'Next'.
  9. On the 'Map modules to servers' page, select the 'sree.war' module. Click 'Next'.
  10. On the 'Map virtual hosts for Web modules' page, select the 'sree.war' module. Click 'Next'.
  11. On the 'Map context roots for Web modules' page, enter '/sree' for the 'Context Root'. This should be the same as the WAR file name. (In the example below, the 'Context Root' is '/sree' because the WAR file is 'sree.war'.) Click 'Next'.
  12. On the 'Summary' page, click 'Finish'. Wait until the application installs successfully.
  13. Click 'Save directly to the master configuration'.
  14. When the master repository is updated, expand the 'Application Types' node under 'Applications' (in the left panel), and click 'Web­sphere enterprise applications' link.
  15. On the 'Enterprise Applications' page, click the link corresponding to the application that you just created (sree).
  16. In the 'Configuration' panel, click the 'Class loading and update detec­tion' link.
  17. Change the following settings:

    1. In the 'Class loader order' panel, select 'Classes loaded with local class loader first (parent last)'.
    2. In the 'WAR class loader policy' panel, select 'Single class loader for application'.
    3. Click 'OK'.
  18. When prompted, click 'Save directly to the master configuration'.
  19. In the 'Enterprise Applications' list, select the new application (sree), and click the 'Start' button.
Once you have deployed the application, you can launch the User Portal, Enterprise Manager, and Soap Repository from the following URLs, respectively:
