Apparently IBM has decided to get rid of AAT in 5.1. Does anyone know
how to assemble apps. in 5.1, now that we don't have AAT anymore.
Do we use ANT ??

Thanks in advance.

Hello Roberto,
You can simply export the EAR. WebSphere Studio Application Developer v5.1 does the rest... "no assembly required".
It's that simple!
Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

So we have to use command line now !!
Why did they do that ??
Just to make sure that I am on right track:
EAR files are nothing but a std. JAR file with .EAR ext. and a EAR file includes WAR and JAR files.
Thanks for ur response

  • I am not sure why you would use comand line. Even installation into the application server (WAS for instance) is done in the admin console.
  • An EAR file is just a ZIP file, and it contains some modules, and a Deployment Descriptor (application.xml)
  • The modules are Web Modules, EJB Modules, etc.
  • A Web Module (WAR) is just a ZIP file with Web components and a Deployment Descriptor (web.xml).
  • An EJB Module (JAR) is just a ZIP files with EJB's and a Deployment Descriptor (ejb-jar.xml)


  • WebSphere Studio can export the whole ball of wax as a single EAR file with all the modules and deployment descriptors ready to go. It's that easy!

    The AAT is not being removed, it's being replaced by a new tool called the Assembly Toolkit. You'll just use it rather than the AAT.
