Importing an application client JAR file

Application client projects are deployed as JAR files. You can import an application client project that has been deployed into a JAR file by using the Import wizard.

To import an application client JAR file using the wizard, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Java™ EE perspective, click File > Import .
  2. Under Select an import source, click J2EE > App Client JAR file .
  3. In the Application Client file field, enter the location and name of the application client JAR file that you want to import.
  4. In the Application Client project field, type a new project name or accept the default project name. The application client project will be created based on the version of the application client JAR file, and it will use the default location.
  5. In the Target runtime drop-down list, select the application server that you want to target for your development. This selection affects the run time settings by modifying the class path entries for the project.
  6. Optional: To add the new module to an enterprise application project, select the Add project to an EAR check box and then select an existing enterprise application project from the list or create a new one by clicking New.
    Note: If you type a new enterprise application project name, the enterprise application project will be created in the default location with the lowest compatible J2EE version based on the version of the project being created. If you want to specify a different version or a different location for the enterprise application, you must use the New Enterprise Application Project wizard.
  7. Click Finish to import the application client JAR file.
