Deploying EJBs and Resource Adapters

Restriction: This topic applies only when the Enterprise Server feature is enabled.

An EJB running a COBOL service runs in two places: the COBOL service runs under an enterprise server, and the EJB and client run under a third party Java application server, such as WebSphere or WebLogic.

Resource adapters enable EJBs deployed on Java application servers to communicate with COBOL on an enterprise server. Resource adapters are also known loosely as J2EE or Java EE connectors.
