Runtime exeception after deploying PAR file in portal

Hi ,

I am facing an issue during the deployment of PAR file in our Quality portal. I have download the PAR file from the system-->import to the NWDS--> did the modification (only to the properties files as part of my requirement) -->Export as PAR file. I then undeploy the previous earlier PAR file and then upload the modified PAR file in portal. When i test the application , i received portal runtime error.

I have also tried by downloading the PAR file for the same application from the production portal and tried importing to Quality system without making any modification to the PAR. I still face the same issue.

Due to this issue, i am not able to bring the application back as its not getting deployed properly. Can anyone help me on this.

Regards

Ray

    Hi Ray,

    Generally its the lib files that need to be added into the NWDS project's lib folder.

    Right click and open the downloaded par file using winzip. Browse through all the folders to find a folder named 'lib' You need to copy all the files from here and paste at the exact same folder in your NWDS project structure.

    This step is usually required for masthead, colorheader and login par files. I believe you are working on one of it only.

    Hi Ray,

    what is the exact exception that you are getting?

    check in the default trace file for the exception ID, and the relevant stack trace.

    When exporting into PAR file - did you make sure that the name of the PAR file is exactly the same name as it should be (the name of the deployed application)?

    Sometimes the export to PAR file changes the name of the PAR file, and then you have in your system the same application within two different PAR files - this of course causes problems.

    Thanks & regards,

    Hi Ray,

    To bring back the application into working condition, please follow the below steps:

    1. Download the PAR file which is in working condition (preferrably from PROD Portal).

    2. Login to your Quality Portal with Administrator Access.

    3. Go to System Administration -> Support -> Portal Runtime -> Administration Console

    4. Browse to the location of the PAR file and click 'Upload'

    5. You will then get a message that 'Application successfully stored in the PCD'.

    In case you still face any issue, please clear the caches and your browser cookies and then try again.

    BR,
