build automation ??

Hi,

From a J2EE EJB project to EJB Assembly Prj(JARs) to EAR creation , is there an automated way to achieve this? If there is a minor change in code rather than doing it manually every time which is time consuming, including recreation of web services if any.

Can I make use of ant?

Thanks,

Dennis

    Hi Dennis,

    this has changed in the latest versions. Now there are only three J2EE projects left, that are JAR, WAR, and EAR. But even in your version all you have to do should be to save the changed code and rebuild the ear. Everything else happens automatically. By ANT, by the way.

    Hi,

    that's an interesting question.

    In other Web-projects we use Maven and accomplish lots of other tasks in addition of the mere ear-generation. That comes very handy.

    Is there any way to include the WAS-prebuilt-tasks into a maven script ?

    We work with several developers in a project and it prooved to be very useful to automate the build process as much as possible. Which leads me to the next question: How do I distribute my WAS-Configuration. I.e. log configuration, etc. I guess that's stored in the database. If every WAS is installed locally, how can I synchronize the general settings ?

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks,

    and sorry for jumping into somoone else's posting.

    • Hi Astrid,

      big trick! We have developed a complete Java Development Infrastructure (JDI) for this, which will be released for 6.40. That will do most of these jobs for you just by using our Design Time Repository (an enhanced version control).

      The configuration of a project by the way there is loaded from a landscape system and does much more then just configure a server.

      Please read on about JDI to get more info.

      Regards,

      Benny
