Let’s assume that you have already successfully installed your NetWeaver 04 including the J2EE Engine 6.40 (Web AS Java 6.40). Now what? Do you also need to configure your J2EE Engine? If yes, what do you need to configure, where, and how?
Take a look at the Configuration Guide for the J2EE Engine in NetWeaver 04. The procedures and recommendations covered there are not new this information has been in the J2EE Engine Administration Manual since the very beginning. Weve taken the most common procedures from the documentation and organized them as a separate guide along with a few other recommendations.
The guide starts with the cluster set up. To simplify the configuration procedure, use the Template Configuration Tool to apply a configuration template depending on the scenario in which you are planning to run your J2EE Engine, that is, according to the components that will run on top of the J2EE Engine. This automatic configuration also takes into account your hardware resources and configures your system accordingly. You can also scale your system if necessary.
The next step is to take care of the cluster configuration that you have already set up. These steps should be performed only after careful estimation, testing, and monitoring.
Next, it’s time to look at your J2EE applications. Because in most cases optimizing the performance of your application is more a question of proper application design than of proper server configuration, we provide some general recommendations for optimizing your J2EE scenarios.
And finally in the guide there is a list of suggested further reading.
Note that this guide is relevant only for release 6.40 (NW ’04).
