Hello,

Can any one tell me, how can I deploy a java application on UNIX. I am new to UNIX. I don't know anything about UNIX. I mean I have created jar file. How would I deploy a jar file on UNIX server. But my application server is Websphere.

Thanks

WebSphere has an administration webapp. Normally you'd give a copy of your WAR or EAR to the WebSphere system administrator. The WebSphere sysadmin would then use the admin webapp to upload and install the WAR or EAR.

Although WARs and EARs are in JAR format, s simple JAR file without the extra elements that distinguish WARs and EARS won't deploy or run under any web application server, since those extra elements are the definitions of the application's configuration and context.

There is no such thing as deploying a WAR file on UNIX. UNIX is an operating system. Is your question really "How do I deploy a WAR on Websphere running on UNIX"?

Unix comes in many different versions under various names. Suns version is called Solaris, IBM's is called AIX, Hewlett-Packards is called HP/UX, Apples OS X/Darwin is based on Unix, Linux (and its many distributions) is based on Unix, and then there are the various BSDs (OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreebSD).

These are considered the "flavors of Unix", and they are to some degree compatible to each other, or at least similar to each other.

laksmi,
I am not sure whether i am getting your question. I hope you have installed websphere in windows and deployed the application. Now you want to deploy the application in unix. The procedure is as simple that you need to take the unix version of app server and install the same in the unix machine. The other procedure is the same as you have done in windows.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
