Step 3: Create an environment

Prerequisite: Step 2: Create and design a component process

This step explains how to create an environment for the helloWorld deployment.

Note: An environment is a collection of resources that represent actual deployment targets, such as physical or virtual machines, databases, or J2EE containers. For any deployment, you must create at least one environment and associate the environment with an application. For details, see Managing Environments.

To create an environment for the helloWorld deployment:

  1. Navigate to Management > Environments.

  2. Click Create at the top right of the screen. The Create Environment dialog box opens.
  3. In the Name field, enter the environment's name, for example, DA_01.
  4. Optional: In the Description field, enter additional information about the environment.
  5. To change the default color that serves as a visual identifier for the environment, click the eyedropper button in the Color field and select another color from the palette.

  6. Click Build Out. The DA_01 environment page opens where you can configure this environment.
