Deploying a Verastream Web Application

Using Web Builder, you can create either a Java or a .NET Web application. Building a Web application for either platform is the same, however, how you deploy a Web application into a production or test enviroment differs depending on the platform you use.

Deploying an ASP Web Application

 

Deploying a Java Web Application

Because Web Builder automatically deploys Web applications to your local Host Integrator Web Server, you can test projects that are under development on your local machine, rather than deploying them to production servers. Use the Project menu to deploy and undeploy a project on your local server.

Web Builder copies a deployment version of the .jar file, <ProjectName>.jar, into the Web server folder:

<VHI install folder>\tomcat\webapps\<ProjectName>\WEB-INF\lib.

 

About the WAR File

A Web archive (.war) file is a convenient way to deploy the generated Web application to any JSP 1.2 compliant servlet engine or application server. A .war file is generated for Web applications in the <VHI install folder>\projects\<ProjectName>\webapp folder.


Moving the Java Web Application Files to Another Server

To move a Web application to another test or production environment:

  1. Confirm that the deployed application has access to the Host Integrator model:
  2. Copy the <ProjectName>.war file, following the steps specific to the servlet runner.


Deploying a .NET Web Application

Because Web Builder automatically deploys .NET Web applications to your local IIS Server, you can test projects that are under development on your local machine, rather than deploying them to production servers.

A <ProjectName>.sln file is generated in the <VHI install folder>\projects\<ProjectName>\solution directory. You can use this file to edit the .NET Web application. Other generated files are copied to Inetpub\wwwroot\<ProjectName>.

 

Moving the .NET Web Application Files to Another Server

To move a .NET Web application to another test or production environment:

  1. Confirm that the deployed application has access to the Host Integrator model:
  2. Verify that the .NET connector (AppConn connector interfaces) is installed on the production server.
  3. Copy the <ProjectName> folder from Inetpub\wwwroot to the same location on the production Web server.
  4. Configure it as an application using Internet Services Manager.

 

Deploying an ASP Web Application

Because Web Builder automatically deploys ASP Web applications to your local IIS Server, you can test projects under development on your local machine, rather than deploying projects to production servers.

Moving the ASP Web Application Files to the Another Server

To move a Web application to another test or production environment:

  1. Confirm that the deployed application has access to the Host Integrator model:
  2. Verify that APPCON.DLL, the COM connector is installed on the production server.
  3. Copy the <ProjectName> folder from Inetpub\wwwroot to the same location on the production Web server.
  4. Copy and register the <ProjectName>.dll file to the production server. This file is located in <VHI install folder>\projects\<projectName>\activexdll\bin\.
  5. Configure the project as an application using Internet Services Manager.
