Hi All,

I need to test one functionality in my current Project , Which involves a scenario in testing in multiple JVM environment. Currently we are having a single profile in the Test environment. If we create multiple profiles in the same server(sample physical machine ) can we simulate as the multiple JVM setup?

please correct me if iam worng. Also how can i make sure that if i have multiple Profiles, i can have the multiple JVM from the WebSphere Perspective

Even though I am a beginer to Websphere, to my understanding creating multiple profiles in the same machine and running your application in each of it would obviously create different JVMs atleast one for each.

Someone please correct me if my understanding is not correct:

1. One Websphere Installation can create Multiple Profiles in the same machine and one can have multiple such Websphere Installations as long as the physical machine is capable.
2. Websphere can be installed in multiple physical machines(PM) and all these PMs can be brought under one shade and call it as a "CELL" in which case a "Deployment Manager" will be installed. Each PM can have one or more "NODES" in it which are controlled by the "Deployment Manager" via "Node Agents" present in each "Node".
3. Now I assume that, "Deployment Manager" run as a separate JVM Process, "Node Agents" run as a separate JVM Process and Application Instances inside the Nodes run as separate JVM processes each.

Excuse me for using this post to clear my Understanding
I agree. Here's the link:
