Appendix A. Sample application install summary 457
In the unit test environment, make sure the server has the type Base,
Express, or unmanaged Network Deployment server. You can see this by
double-clicking the server in the Servers view. The server configuration opens
and you see the Server type box under the Network Deployment section.
The only time this matters with the sample is when you are installing the Web
services support. In a distributed environment, you must use DB2 for the SDO
repository. This is not difficult, but for this sample, it is best not to complicate
That you have opened the administrative console.
That you are using a Windows system. If you are not using Windows most of
these instructions will still work as documented but you may need to refer to
the WebSphere InfoCenter for platform-specific information such as
command locations or extensions.
File locations will be denoted with <was_install>. For example, if you have
WebSphere Application Server installed, <was_install> will look similar to
C:\WebSphere\AppServer. In the Rational test environment, it might look
similar to C:\Rational\RSA\runtimes\base_v6.
When dealing with relatively new WebSphere features such as the bus, we go

much the same from previous versions of WebSphere such as creating data
sources, we simply give you the information you need to populate those items.
Configuring the data source and creating the database
The application uses a customer database called PATTERNS. This database

Test environment: To get to the administrative console, do the following:

Start. The Console view opens and you can see the messages from

3. When you see the Open for e-business message, switch back to the
Servers view. Right-click the server and select Run administrative
