Hello,

The easiest way to deploy your EAR or WAR is to deploy it through the admin console. The admin console is located @ YOUR_SERVER : PORT/admin

Once you login to the admin console navigate in the tree (left pane) to Applications -->Install applications. From there you could start the install wizard.

You could try http://webspherecentral.com/ for some tutorials on the WSAD (ie. RAD, ie. ECLIPSE). I haven't checked but they might have some tutorials in regards to WAS.

Finally, WAS requires some setup to use datasources, security, virtual hosts, etc. I would recommend if you are going to use WAS maybe learn about setting up these features. Most (if not all) of these features are setup via the admin console.

NOW.... if someone will answer my question about PORTLETS. Lately, everyone of my questions don't receive any responses.

Regards.

Didn't you download documentation ???

start the websphere and once it is started open the URL
http://localhost:9090/admin
then click on the apllications --> enterprise application

the you will see all the installed application, you can deploy your war file by clicking install button

You need to check if the application is started.

Admin Console -- Enterprise Applications

Secondly, the address of the servlet, jsp, whatever would be something like

<a href="http://localhost:9080/<b rel="nofollow">Your_CONTEXT_ROOT</b>" target="_blank">http://localhost:9080/Your_CONTEXT_ROOT for example localhost:9080/TestWeb.

If you are using WS 6 the url for administration console is fully.qualifiedhostname:9060/ibm/console
