This document assumes that you know a little about Java already,yet it does attempt to expalin in some greater details the steps for deploying.The document also talks about deploying to OC4J standalone server,but the concepts apply to all the Servlet Container I've worked with (Weblogic,Jboss/Tomcat,JRun,Novell,Sun). It best to read this document form start to dinish (its short - don't worry). and then go back and work though the given examples.
please send me feedback, if you like it. Enjoy!
