Please inform me about similar link but in Windows version….

Hi Atul,
I confused this post with the bellow one

Both are same ?


Atul Kumar says July 28, 2010

@ Rupesh,
Steps here are mainly for Jdeveloper (development framework) mainly targeted for developers

where as steps mentioned in are for deployment (prod/non prod)

In Jdev there is single JVM to host all applications . Check part II of this and you will understand.

Think this as JDK & JRE (This is bad example but good enough to corelate)

Rupesh says July 28, 2010

Okay…got it. Thanks Atul.
