      I have a fresh install of BI 4.1 SP5 from the 51046778 package. I'm trying to apply SP5. I have ZERO traces of this start menu item. I also cannot find any traces to wdeploy.exe or wdeploy.jar

      Is this something that should have been installed automatically WITH BI 4.1 SP1?

    Web applications deployment guide has exact and complete information about wdeploy, what it does and how to use it.

    Which part you find confusing ?

    This information might help SAP improve their docs.

    The WDeploy tool is included with SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise to ease deployment of web

    applications to Java-based web application servers.

    There are two different versions of WDeploy:

    • A traditional, text-based interface that processes commands and parameters given on the

    command-line.

    • A new console-based guided assistant similar to the SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise installation

    program, which prompts the user to enter deployment parameters.

    While each supported web application server requires different commands and web application package

    updates, WDeploy provides a consistent interface for administrators, and automates the adjustments

    needed for deployment to a specific web application server.

    For example, to deploy a web application to an SAP NetWeaver AS Java web application server, a

    single WDeploy command performs the following tasks:

    1. Creates settings specific to SAP NetWeaver in the web application's web.xml file.

    2. Bundles the web application content into a web archive.

    3. Creates an SCA package containing the web application.

    4. Copies the SCA package to the SAP NetWeaver deployment directory.

    5. Calls SAP NetWeaver deployment tools to deploy the web application.

    Hello,

    I have done this step:

    "For "Choose Deployment Action", select "Undeploy all SAP BusinessObjects Web Applications from the server" to: Wdeploy the war

    Then, like other times, I choose "Deploy all avilable SAP BusinessObjects Web Applications..."

    And now when I can't run my application. I have the floders: "BOE" and "AdminTools" empty, what I did wrong????

    Thanks a lot.

    David

    Hi,

    We can find the war files in the below given location of the Root installation Directory.

    C:\BO_ROOT_DIR\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\wdeploy\workdir\tomcat6\application

    Hope this helps!

      I have finally repaired it. What I did is...

      As I said I run the "undeploy" option in the "wdeploy application" so the web application was cleaned. I executed the "predeploy" command in order to set the default configuration.

      "wdeploy.bat weblogic11 -DAPP=BOE predeploy"


      And after that the application starts working.


      I don't know why the location is empty but it stills be empty after "predeploy".


      Thanks a lot.
