Creating and Deploying the Complete J2EE Application

In this unit you will learn carry out the necessary steps in order to pack all the resources and archives you have created, with the associated deployment descriptors, in an EAR file, to create a complete car rental application. This archive file will contain all the component parts of the application and will reference the two archives you created previously, QuickCarRentalEjb.jar and QuickCarRentalWeb.war.

To create your complete car rental application, you will first create an Enterprise Application project called QuickCarRentalEar. You will also enter some descriptions in the J2EE standard deployment descriptor application.xml, before you generate the corresponding EAR file as an archive for the complete application and finally deploy this to the J2EE Engine.
