Deploying exploded EAR in WAS 6.40

Is exploded EAR deployment possible and how?

During development and/or debugging it takes very long time for me to redeploy EAR.

P.S. I hate to compare, but Oracle, BEA and IBM all have that option.

    Hi Yuri,

    Deploy Service in J2EE Engine provides single file update capabilities. It definitely saves time and I guess will be useful to you. For more information, please, consider the relevant documentation at

    (go to Administration Manual -> Server Administration -> SAP J2EE Engine Administration -> Deploy Service).

    Hope this helps.

      Hi, Zornitsa (what a beautiful name - if I am not mistaken in Russian it means "a spring lightning" 😊 ),

      I tried your explanations but I am still not able to update a class file in the ROOT of EAR, that is not belonging to an EJB or servlet_jsp container.

      It sounds like the Single File Update tool expects all shared JARs to be deployed in WEB-INF directory of servlet_jsp. But our EAR (which is J2EE 1.2 compliant) has them packaged in the root - basically they're located nor in EJB nor in WEB container, but in an EAR container.

      Anyway, I look forward to a version of deploy update tool that would allow to update a JAR (not just a class or jsp) inside a deployed application.

      Best regards,
