Are there any tools available to generate a WAR file for an ABL WebApp from the command line (automating the PDS Export/ABL Web Application)?
I have this dream of being able to have a build machine create a WAR file from a .Git repository and deploy the WAR file to an integration environment auto-magically.
I found a KBase entry relating to generating a WAR file for a REST service (https://knowledgebase.progress.com/articles/Article/How-to-get-the-war-file-without-PDSOE), but the 'jar' utility does not appear to do what the Export/ABL Web Application does.
This would be for 11.7.2+.
ANT. There is a copy of it shipped with openedge. The executable has been renamed to "proant" in the $DLC/bin directory. The trick isn't knowing how to do it, since building a war file with ant is trivial, the trick is actually in knowing what needs to go into it and where each file needs to reside.
I don't think anyone has written a public document on the content layout yet.
does this do what you are looking for...??
That's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the link and the sample.
Have a great day,
