This paper proposes a Generic container deployment framework for automating and making the deployment process of a given J2EE application/product smooth, easily maintainable and transparent of application-server. The proposed framework is based on the J2EE Deployment API (JSR88) part of J2EE specifications since J2EE1.4 and introduces a new concept of Container deployment descriptor which is used by the framework utility for deploying the application/product across different application-servers. The framework also provides mechanism to automatically generate the Container deployment descriptor. The paper also discusses the limitations of the proposed framework and the complementing technologies like JSR77.
