An environment is a grouping of infrastructure and middleware items such as hosts, servers, clusters, and so on. An environment is used as the target of a deployment, allowing you to map deployables to members of the environment.

To create an environment where you can deploy an application:

  1. In the top menu, click Repository.
  2. Right-click Environments and select New > Environment.
  3. In the Name box, enter a name for this environment.
  4. On the Common tab, select one or more middleware containers from the Containers list and click Right arrow button to move it to the Members list.
