How to install UploadBean v1.6?

hi,

I've downloaded UploadBean version 1.6, Is is a war file.

Im using J2EE1.3.1 application server and JDK1.4.

when iUploadBean is also available as a WAR archive. It's a SERVLETS 2.2 standard archive for Web Applications.
What does it mean ?... It means that WAR installation is as easy as a copy/paste, regardless to the servlet engine vendor.

To install UploadBean WAR archive, copy uploadbean.war under the webapps folder of your servlet engine before running it. That's all :-)
Note that webapps folder depends on your servlet engine. It could be webapps/, applications/ ... The WAR file will be automatically uncompressed under uploadbean/ folder.

But in J2EE1.3.1 there is no folder named webapps, but i was able to indentify a folder named applications in C:\JDK\repository\bbsu-2(my systemname)\applications.

In an aim of trying this Uploadbean i've made a copy there and tried. It is not working, i beleive i made something wrong.

Can any tell me how to install UploadBean and use it.

Is your application server running?
Is it configured to automatically deploy war files?

I haven't used that server so I can't help you with it.
I do know that, with Tomcat, all you need to do is drop the war file in the webapps directory and it deploys it.

It has tools for deploying webapps, not for individual servlets.
