Building the ear for the ISA 4.0 .

Hi All

I have a customized ISA 4.0 application. For building the final EAR through ANT <b>DO we</b> require the SAPJ2EE engine to be installed on our Machine , because while building through ANT i guess it refers to various jars of the SAPJ2EE engine and i am getting the following error while building because i do not have the WAS on my machine.


file:C:/ISABUILDTOOL/project/buildmodification.xml:70: C:\usr\sap\XXX\JC

00\j2ee\cluster\server\additional-lib not found.</i>

So Is it possible to build the code without the WAS independantly.

Please advice .


Nilesh .

    Hi Nilesh,

    I have developed a full ISA B2B and B2C solution without having a WAS installed on my development laptop... The solution is to have a number of .jar files copied locally. Here's an excerpt from my rough guide to developing with ISA...

    1. Install Ant Builder.

    You need to download Apache Ant Builder from SAP recommends using at least version 1.5.1 but not to use version 1.6.1 if you are running Windows XP. I have found 1.5.2 to be fine.

    Extract to a suitable place on your hard drive (the root of C:\ or D:\ are ideal.)

    Add in the SAP XML Java tools:-

    • Copy inqmyxml.jar into your ant\lib folder.

    Add in the HTTP java tools:-

    • Copy servlet.jar to ant\lib\cluster\server\additional-lib.

    Set up correct environment variables for Ant to run:-

    • Right click on My Computer and choose properties.

    • Go to the advanced tab and click on Environment Variables.

    • Under System Variables click on new and enter ANT_HOME as the name and the root of your Ant installation (C:\ant or D:\ant for example)

    • Now select the ‘Path’ system variable and click on edit. At the end add a semi-colon and then “C:\ant\bin” or “D:\ant\bin” accordingly.

    2. Install ISA Build Tool.

    You need to download the SAP ISA Build Tool from SAP OSS – note number 594370.

    When I went through this pain, I copied the 2 jar files directly from our WAS installation to ensure I had the correct versions.

    Hope this helps,
