Creating SDA file using sapmake_util


I have to convert EAR file generated using SAP's deploy tool into a SDA file and finally to a SCA file. I have tried converting EAR to SCA directly using sapmake_util, but it does not work.

What are the steps to convert a EAR file to SDA? I have tried creating the sap-dd.xml file and sap-manifest file manually and add it to the ear file, but it does not work. I am getting error as follows -

C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\sapmake_util_70>sca test sca

Buildfile: C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\sapmake_util_70\build.xml



[echo] Using vendor ID: Amberpoint


[delete] Deleting directory C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\sapmake_util_70\tmp

[mkdir] Created dir: C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\sapmake_util_70\tmp

file:C:/Program Files (x86)/SAP/sapmake_util_70/build.xml:108: Error: the file test/test_new.ear is not a correct SDA The information about the development component found in the manifest is either missing or incomplete!

Manifest attributes are missing or have badly formatted value:

attribute keylocation is missing

attribute keyname is missing

attribute keyvendor is missing

attribute keycounter is missing

Can someone please help resolve this issue?

Thanks & Regards.
