Using DBWSBuilder with Ant

With EclipseLink DBWS, you can invoke the DBWSBuilder from Apache Ant (http://ant.apache.org/) to generate the necessary files, compile, and package the application with additional Ant targets.

Example

This example illustrates how to use Ant to generate a deployable web archive. For this example, consider the following file layout:

<example-root>

dbws-builder.xml (see Example 3-1)
build.xml (see Example 3-2)
build.properties (see Example 3-3)

  jlib
    eclipselink.jar
    eclipselink-dbwsutils.jar
    javax.servlet.jar
    javax.wsdl.jar
    ojdbc6.jar
    org.eclipse.persistence.oracleddlparser.jar

  stage
    All generated artifacts will saved here, most importantly simpletable.war.

To run the DBWS builder in this example, simply type ant in the <example-root> directory. The builder packages the generated artifacts into the web archive (simpletable.war) in the stage directory. This .war file can then be deployed to WebLogic.

Example 3-1 Sample DBWS Builder File (dbws-builder.xml)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<dbws-builder xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <properties>
    <property name="projectName">simpletable</property>
    ... database properties
  </properties>
 
  <table
    schemaPattern="SCOTT"
    tableNamePattern="SIMPLETABLE"
  />
</dbws-builder>

Example 3-2 Sample Build XML File (build.xml)

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="simpletable" default="build">
  <property file="${basedir}/build.properties"/>
 
  <path id="build.path">
    <fileset
      dir="${jlib.dir}"
      includes="eclipselink.jar 
                eclipselink-dbwsutils.jar 
                org.eclipse.persistence.oracleddlparser.jar 
                javax.wsdl.jar 
                javax.servlet.jar 
                ojdbc6.jar"
      >
    </fileset>
  </path>
 
  <target name="build">
    <java
      classname="org.eclipse.persistence.tools.dbws.DBWSBuilder"
      fork="true"
      classpathRef="build.path"
      >
      <arg line="-builderFile ${dbws.builder.file} -stageDir ${stage.dir} -packageAs ${server.platform} ${ant.project.name}.war"/>
    </java>
  </target>
</project>

Example 3-3 Sample Build Properties File (build.properties)

custom = true
build.sysclasspath=ignore
 
stage.dir=${basedir}/stage
jlib.dir=${basedir}/jlib
server.platform=wls
dbws.builder.file=dbws-builder.xml
