Graphics for Development Tools

The development graphics represent objects or processes in the software development process.

Creating and Deploying Applications and Applets

The graphics in this section represent:

  • The creation, selection, and opening of an application, an applet, a J2EE application, a J2EE application client, and a J2EE server
  • The addition of a J2EE application client to a J2EE application
  • The deployment (that is, installation in an operational environment) of an application

A J2EE application consists of J2EE components (application clients, applets, HTML pages, JSP pages (JavaServer Pages), servlets, and enterprise beans) that run on the J2EE platform. J2EE applications are typically designed for distribution across multiple computing tiers.

A J2EE application client is a first-tier client program that executes in its own Java virtual machine, but might access J2EE components in the web or business tier.

A J2EE server is a collection of runtime services provided by the J2EE platform. These include HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), HTTPS (Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol), JTA (Java Transaction API), RMI- IIOP (Remote Method Invocation-Internet Inter-ORB Protocol), Java IDL (Java Interface Definition Language), JDBC (Java Database Connectivity), JMS (Java Message Service), JNDI (Java Naming and Directory Interface), JavaMail, and JAF (JavaBeans Activation Framework). Although J2EE servers usually come packaged with web and EJB containers, they are not required to. For example, an OS vendor could supply the runtime services while a separate vendor supplied the J2EE containers.

For deployment, a J2EE application is packaged in an EAR (Enterprise Archive) file.

 


Note — You can use a twinkle badge with these graphics to indicate a new applet, application, J2EE application, J2EE application client, J2EE server, bean, enterprise bean, host, and server. For details, see New Object Indicators.
