Customized WebSphere Commerce Enterprise Application (EAR) assets

The WebSphere Commerce Java EE assets are provided in a Enterprise Application (EAR) file. If you customize or change your WebSphere Commerce EAR assets, you must package and deploy the changed assets. You deploy your EAR assets to WebSphere Application Server, using either a graphical wizard, or scripting tools. Regardless of whether you use the graphical or scripting tools, always back up your Java EE assets before you deploy.
