Remove Projects from Rational Application Developer V6 - WebSphere Application Server V6.0 Test Server

Abstract

This technote discusses the process of removing projects from Rational Application Developer V6 test server.

Contents

We found it necessary in some cases to uninstall the application from the WebSphere Administrative Console. Application Developer includes a feature to right-click on the WebSphere Application Server V6.0 test server and select Add and remove projects; however, for our scenario this feature did not work.

For example, if you have published a project in Rational Application Developer to your test server, it will have been deployed to the server defined in the WebSphere Profile. If you then delete your Rational Application Developer server configuration or switch workspaces without first removing the project from the server, you will have a broken association between the Rational Application Developer server and the server defined in the WebSphere Profile.

We have listed a couple of possible resolutions to this issue:

    * Create a new WebSphere profile for each new Rational Application Developer workspace (server configuration). This approach will require more disk for each WebSphere Profile and server configuration, and if run simultaneously will require additional memory. For details refer to the Servers and server configuration chapter of the Rational Application Developer V6 Programming Guide, SG24-6449.
    * Manually uninstall the application from WebSphere Administrative Console
    The following procedure explains how to uninstall a deployed application using the WebSphere Administrative Console.

To address issues such as the scenarios described above, uninstall the enterprise application from the WebSphere Administrative Console as follows:
    1. Start the test server in Rational Application Developer by selecting the server (for example, WebSphere Application Server V6.0), by right-clicking and selecting Start.
    2. Start the WebSphere Administrative Console either by right-clicking on the server and selecting Run administrative console, or by accessing its URL from a Web browser:
    http://<appserver_host>:<admin_console_port>/ibm/console
    For example: http://localhost:9060/ibm/console/
    3. Click the Log in button.
    WebSphere security is not enabled, thus a user ID and password are not required.
    4. Click Applications -> Enterprise Applications.
    5. Check the desired application to uninstall.
    6. Click the Uninstall button.
    7. When prompted, click OK.
    8. Save your changes.
For more information, refer to the Servers and Server configuration chapter of the Rational Application Developer V6 Programming Guide, SG24-6449.
