Creating the J2EE Application

In this section, you'll create a J2EE application named ConverterApp, storing it in the file ConverterApp.ear.

  1. In deploytool, select FileRight ArrowNewRight ArrowApplication.
  2. Click Browse.
  3. In the file chooser, navigate to this directory:
  4. <INSTALL>/j2eetutorial14/examples/ejb/converter/

  5. In the File Name field, enter ConverterApp.ear.
  6. Click New Application.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Verify that the ConverterApp.ear file resides in the directory specified in step 3.

At this point, the application contains no J2EE components and cannot be deployed. In the sections that follow, when you run the deploytool wizards to create the components, deploytool will add the components to the ConverterApp.ear file.
