Step 4: Specify the server name, port number and server type for Appeon Server and Web server used in Appeon Developer. Note that for Appeon Server installed to WebLogic Server, you must select J2EE as Server Type of Appeon Server. Click Next.

If you want to use an Appeon Server that has been already installed to the same machine where Appeon Developer is being installed, use the default values. If you want to use a remote Appeon Server, specify the server name and port number of the remote server. The setup program can automatically configure the Server Profile and Deployment Profile in the Appeon Developer Configuration window for the specified servers.

Yon can change these settings in the Configure tool of Appeon Developer after the installation when necessary. For detailed instructions, refer to the section called “Managing server profiles” in Appeon Developer User Guide.
