Packaging commands, data beans, or Java classes for deployment

If you are deploying a custom command, data bean, or Java classes, you must first package or export your classes as a JAR file.


  1. Open WebSphere Commerce Developer and switch to the Enterprise Explorer view.
  2. Right-click the WebSphereCommerceServerExtensionsLogic project and select Export.
  3. In the Export wizard:
    1. Select Java > JAR file and click Next.
    2. Ensure that the resources that begin with a period are not selected. For example, .classpath, .factorypath, and .project.
    3. Ensure Export generated class files and resources is selected.
    4. Ensure Export Java source files and resources is not selected.
    5. In the Select the export destination field, enter the fully-qualified JAR file name, for example:
    6. Click Finish.
  4. Depending on whether you have other assets to deploy, you are either ready to deploy your assets or you have one more packaging step:
    • If you do not have other assets to deploy (that is, the only asset to deploy is the JAR file you have just created), then deploy it as a single file.
    • If there are other assets as part of this deployment:
      1. Package them as either a partial application or an entire module.
      2. Deploy as either a partial application or an entire module.
