      Hi Noel,

      and thanks a lot for your help. I managed to create the epa file, but I cannot manage to fill the package with contet. Here is what I did..

      I have a DynPage, and i packed it in a .par file. From the portal -> PRT Admin Console I can uploaded into the portal and run it from the Component inspector. But I have no idea how to pack this into a epa file for shiping. I would be very grateful for any help on this.

      Thank you,

      Sanda

    Hi Sanda,

    First create an iview based on the par file. The subsequent steps are clearly mentioned in the link sent by Noel.

      Hi David,

      Suppose you have 3 different environment viz Dev, Test, & Prod, first you will deploy your par file in Dev, do all your development activity.

      Once all the dev activities are complete then you have to transport the 'par' file into Test and NOT to deploy the par file in Test. In order to transport the par file from one EP to another, the portal design is to create an EPA.

      In realtime, an application will consist of more than 1 par file. In this case think of deploying(as well as creation of iviews,pagees etc) in different environments? So you have to create a transport package with all the files(par==>iviews,pages,etc) which will be saved in a .epa and import into the destination EP.

      HTH,

    Hi Sanda,

    I assume you are referring to the 'popup' as the one when you execute your program from the Component inspector. Here the behaviour is always like this.

    When you create an iview and preview it again the behaviour is going to be the same. But when you assign the iview to a page, this will display in the same page.

    If this is not what you want, will you please elaborate your querry?

    Regards,
