In a J2EE application life cycle, there are many roles performed by people or organizations. However, different roles do not require different people. The same person or organization may perform two or more roles. The J2EE product provider is an example of such a role, which is usually managed by an organization.

The following are J2EE product provider roles and responsibilities:

  • Provide deployment tools to the deployer
  • Configure the product to use suitable security domains
