Your application


Any Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE)
application in enterprise archive (EAR) or Web
archive (WAR) format can be used with Express
Runtime


Your application can be written in almost any
language using any tool and be used with Express
Runtime


it is not limited to Java applications


You don’t have to develop an application


you
can deploy applications on Express Runtime from
other 3
rd

party vendors

Wrappers


Two types of wrappers
are used in Express
Runtime:


Application wrapper
:
Helps to integrate any
application, such as an
ISV application or any
middleware component,
into a solution


Solution wrapper
:

Helps to seamlessly
combine several
applications into a
complete solution

Integrate your application


Include all required components to run the application


The result of this development effort is a full solution,
which uses a single installation process for all
components, including the application

Putting it all together


To deploy all the middleware
components along with your
application, your solution
might contain:


Your application with its
application

wrapper


Solution

wrapper contains:


Your application


Your own help text and
license


Your branding: advertise to
your customer during the
installation


Middleware components
provided by Express Runtime


The solution can then be
deployed by the deployment
wizard

Package a solution


After a solution is developed, package it and export
your solution to CDs or DVDs or a staging server

Complete solution is
placed on a CD/DVD

Deploy the solution


Deploy a solution via CD/DVD/staging server


Express Runtime provides a Launchpad that allows your customer to
view your solution readme and documentation and deploy your solution


The Launchpad or the Setup program invokes the
Deployment Wizard

which drives the deployment process

Deploy locally or
remotely to multiple
targets

Manage solution


Express Runtime Console

allows you to manage all the resources
that make up an application or multiple applications from a single
interface


Monitor logs for error situations and advanced problem
determination
