Help interfacing with Websphere Rapid Deploy WRDExec [message #166841] Fri, 14 April 2006 18:39 Go to next message

I'm working on modifying the WTP Websphere plugin to publish an EAR file
using the Websphere Rapid Deploy tool (for version 6.0) instead of wsadmin
install/uninstall. Specifically, I'm trying to automate the startup of the
WRD application, which is essentially a headless Eclipse app which listens
to a specific project directory and auto-installs any EARs placed there.

The problem I'm having is with the WRDExec application. It is not really
an API, but more of a command-line utility you run and keep open until
you are done with, and then type 'q' to quit. I've tried the Ant exec task
on the batch file that runs WRD, but the problem is that when WRDExec goes
to look for something on STDIN, it finds nothing and immediately shuts
down. I've also tried the Ant java task, but that simply either hangs
forever if I don't spawn it, or immediately shuts down if I do.

There is virtually no documentation online about WRD and its interfaces.
Does anyone know if there is an API that I can use to manage WRD better?

Thanks in advance,
Jonathan

I was able to solve my problem partially by discovering that WRDExec has a
-batch option which starts the workbench, runs the build script, then
stops the workbench. This is good enough, even though it won't pick up an
undeploy, which isn't a big deal.

Jonathan,

sounds like an interesting way to manage the publishing for websphere.
Just a few questions on that:

- Did you just replace the Ant file that shiped with WTP for Websphere ?
---> by using the <autoAppInstall ...> - task
( http://help.eclipse.org/help31/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. jst.j2ee.doc.user/topics/tantautoappinstall.html)?

- Does that bring a performance gain on publishing in comparison to
wsadmin install/uninstall?

- Do you use "freeform" or "autoappinstall" in your tests

regards,

Andreas
