Saving large EAR files

Things have been quiet here at 'wsadminlib central' lately, since many contributors have been focused on getting WAS V8 out the door.  Now that WAS V8 has shipped, here is a brief update...

Frequent wsadminlib contributor Chris in Australia reported a problem saving a large EAR file, on the order of 300 Mb.  He had trouble starting the application immediately after doing a save and sync.  He also observed that the file system was still growing for a short time after the sync.

Now I always thought that an application was fully deployed and ready to start when wsadminlib's method saveAndSync() returned, but not true...

WAS V8 and

The IBM WebSphere Application Server version 8.0 was released a few weeks ago, and wsadminlib helped deliver it.  Wsadminlib was used internally within IBM as part of many automated testcases.  This included the original prototypes, all the betas, and the final verifications.

So as you move forward migrating from prior versions of WAS to V8, you may continue using wsadminlib knowing it performed yeoman's service throughout the latest release's development and delivery.
