Taking backup of installed application

Exporting applications enables you to back up your applications and preserve binding information for the applications. You might export your applications before updating installed applications or migrating to a later version of the product.

To export applications, use the Export button on the Enterprise Applications page. Using Export produces an enhanced enterprise archive (EAR) file that contains the application as well as the deployment configuration. The deployment configuration consists of the deployment.xml and other configuration files that control the application behavior on a deployment target.



You can restore the backed up application any time using the WAS Admin Console using either the update or install button on Enterprise application button.

The application that you export this way is called enhanced enterprise application and this is how its content would look like



The deployment.xml has the binding information, this is how the sample deployment.xml looks like

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<appdeployment:Deployment xmi:version="2.0" xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI" xmlns:appdeployment="http://www.ibm.com/websphere/appserver/schemas/5.0/appdeployment.xmi" xmi:id="Deployment_1251509953840">
