Liberty and Bluemix: Developing and deploying Java EE applications to Bluemix

WebSphere Liberty is the next generation application server, a newer architecture than traditional WAS. Liberty and Eclipse make a great local development environment for developing Java EE applications. They also make a great local development environment for developing and deploying Java EE applications to Bluemix. This development environment enables you to develop and test applications locally, and provides tooling for deploying them to Bluemix. In this excerpt from “Java EE, the next inception: Install a local Java EE development environment for Bluemix,” we’ll explore how to configure your local Liberty and Eclipse development environment and make sure the Liberty runtime is Bluemix is configured the same way.

Liberty and Eclipse: Package a server

WebSphere Liberty is the next generation application server, and Liberty and Eclipse make a great local development environment for developing Java EE applications. One task you’ll need to be able to perform is using Eclipse to to package a Liberty server and application. This will create a single archive file that can be used to install the application and its runtime on another computer. In this excerpt from “Java EE, the next inception: Install a local Java EE development environment for WebSphere Liberty,” we’ll explore how to create a packaged Liberty server using Eclipse.
