Hi,
Today is my first day with Websphere.
I would appreciate if someone can tell me how to generate following files required by Websphere:
�ibm-ejb-jar-ext.xml
�ibm-ejb-jar-bnd.xml
�Map.mapxmi
�Schema.dbxmi
�ibm-application-ext.xml
�ibm-application-bnd.xml
1.
Can I just provide the minimal files (application.xml, ejb-jar.xml and web.xml) in my ear file and use admin tool to deploy and generete the websphere specific file.
2.
I read somewhere about AAT. However i couldn't find if anywhere on my computer. And there is no assembly.sh or bat file. Do I have to download and install is separately. Do I have to enable it somewhere. How to start it.
I am not using WSAD for development.
Thanks a lot.
AJ Kumar

You've answered your own questions except for one.
Yes, if you are using WSAD then you do not need to worry about these files as they are generated for you. But since you do not have WSAD, you have correctly summised that you'll need the AAT to assemble your apps. So where is it? I use WSAD and have never used it but I always assumed that the WebSphere/AppServer/bin/assembly.bat (windows) file kicked it off.

Thanks William.
However when I try to deploy just the ear file using Admin tool (without websphere specific deployment descriptor files), its throwing exceptions. So I am not able to use Admin tool.
And no assembly.bat file got installed along with Websphere. So I am not able to use AAT. I am really interested in using ATT. Just don't know how to start it. Or probably I should say, where to install it from. I already installed complete websphere today along with IBM HTTP Server.
Please help me out here.

In Websphere 4.0, the AAT is an option on the tools pull down of the admin console.

There is no tools option in Admin console in Websphere Server 5.1. I have a feeling that IBM stopped including AAT/Assembly toolkit with Websphere server or its HIDDEN somewhere.... Deployment on Weblogic was such a bliss.

I am new to Websphere and IBM.
Can someone please post this question to the forum Gurus or IBM support engineers.
Thanks,

What version of WebSphere are you using? Express?
 
He was giving me directions and I was powerless to resist. I cannot resist this tiny ad:
