Sometimes you have developed a standalone Java application but want to make use of capabilities provided by an application server. For example, you might have a standalone Java application which accesses a DB2 database but you want to make use of the connection pooling provided by WebSphere Liberty.

The following video demonstrates how to package the application in an EAR, create an application client in Liberty, configure the client.xml with the database information, and then run the application.
