I have a application that is already deployed in the Websphere 4.0 environment. Now I have a new ear file for the same application that has to be deployed in the Websphere environment.What should I do with the old deployed application : 1)Should I remove it so that I can deploy the new one. 2)Can I redploy the new one without removing the old one. 3)Is there any way out without deleting the old one. All inputs will be appreciated.
There are number of ways you can achieve this depending on your project/ear file configuration 1. You can change the context of the application. For the new ear file you can say context is /ProjectNameNew and deploy it. the url of the project will be different. This depends on the project configuration as you might have to change all the path to images and js files. In my project I always take the root path for images from xml file so I change the path in xml file and images will pop up) 2. You can create new server group other than Default Server and deploy the new application on it. ( But I think you will still need to change the context ...not sure I think this depends on the the project configuration ) Though just pointers in direction, I thought it might help you.
