Automating Deployments from JDeveloper to AS10g
Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting
Sept 15, 2004
If you are developing your application using J2EE then
Oracle's JDeveloper is the tool for you! Oracle has put a lot of
effort into creating and improving JDeveloper, to include using it for
internal Oracle development. As one Oracle developer told me,
"When you eat the food you cook, you tend to do a better job at
If you want to check out JDeveloper you can download
it from otn.oracle.com
J2EE applications are normally deployed into an
application server as war or ear files. You can manually deploy
the files however placing them in archives (war, ear) is less
complicated and less error prone. You can deploy archives using
the application server's Enterprise Manager Application Server Control
or you can deploy then directly from JDeveloper
First you need to create a connection from JDeveloper
to the OC4J container in AS10g.
Select the Connections tab, right-click on the
Application Server and select new Application Server Connection.
A wizard will start that walks you through the connection creation.
Enter a name for this connection and select the version (or brand) of
Application Server you are using.
It will next ask for the username and password for the AS instance.
For AS10g this is ias_admin/your password. Now you need to tell
JDeveloper where within the AS to connect to. I created a new OC4J
instance in my AS10g Portal instance called AppDev. Don't forget
to start the container. In step 3 I entered my host name, the port
used to connect to Application Server Control, the ORACLE_HOME for that
instance and the name of my container.
Step 4 ask for the connection password for JMI and step 5
allows you to test the connection.
This connection allows you to deploy your application
directly into the Application Server from JDeveloper.
