This topic is about how to set up a production environment for your applications.

  • Adding JARs to the Geronimo repositoryThe server keeps common Java libraries in a repository by using the same directory structure and naming conventions prompted by the Apache Maven http://maven.apache.org/ project. If your Java EE asset depends on a library that is not already in the repository, you can update the repository to include the new library from the administration console or by using the deployer command, and define the dependency in your Java EE asset's deployment plan.
  • Configuring datasourcesDatabase pools provide a mechanism for applications to access databases hosted on database managers without having to include the physical implementation details of the database in the application code. The database pools also relieve the application from managing things such as connection pools and timeouts.
  • Configuring JMS resourcesA JMS resource group is a resource adapter module that binds together the related connection factories, queues and topics. To create and access JMS resources such as queues, topics and connection factories in Geronimo, you have to create a JMS resource group.
  • Configuring multiple repositoriesThe advantage of having multiple repositories is that they can reside on different server instances.
