Help needed: WebSphere 6.1's webservices

Hi WebSphere Guru,

I just have small requirement to use one webservice from other team.

We do not have webservices on our original websphere6.1 application server. I tried to install webservices feature package on websphere6.1, and I found that there are two websphere6.1 application profiles.
1)WebSphere61\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv01 - Original one for websphere6.1 without webservices feature.
2)WebSphere61\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv02 - application server with webservices feature

It looked to me like two different application server instance since they have different port number.

What I need is that on the same AppSrv01, I need to use it. That's all. I don't want to have two separate application servers.

Sam,
Unfortunately the only support for WebService Feature Pack is to create a new profile.

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/topic/com.ibm.websphere.wsfep.multiplatform.doc/info/ae/ae/tpro_augment.html

For the Feature Pack for Web Servicess, you can augment the deployment manager profile of the Network Deployment product, but not the cell profile, the application server profile, or the custom profile.


I am not sure if you are only concerned with the ports, or if this is also the applications which are installed on the first profile. You could always create another profile, using the "Advanced profile creation" button and specify the same ports as the first profile.

Thank you very much for your reply Frank.

My point is that we don't want to have another profile.

We want to use the first profile to install webservices feature packages.

Since we already have applications in the first profiles and we want to have new applications with webservices also deployed in first profiles.

I am not sure if I am clear enough here.

Sam,
I think you are pretty clear. The problem is that you do not want to run 2 profiles, you want the current applications which are installed on AppSrv01 to run with the web service feature pack support and you want to maintain the same ports as specified in AppSrv01.

Profile AppSrv01 contains the base WAS support which is configured during the create of the profile. Profile AppSrv02 contains the same base WAS support as AppSrv01, additionally it contains the support for the WebService feature pack. Applications which are installed on AppSrv01, should also run on AppSrv02. (I am a little vague here since I am not familiar if the web service feature pack extend or replace existing WAS support.).

Based on the restriction which is posted in the first reply, you will not be able to augment or activate the WebService code in the AppSrv01 profile. While you can install the same application from AppSrv01 to AppSr02, your ports will not be the same. Therefore, if you want applications and ports to align you will need to create a third profile to get the ports set the same as AppSrv01.

If you need more help let me know, I can probably explain how the create and augment of the profile should work.
