Rebuilding Web Builder Projects

The build process generates project files. If you change the project settings and properties, the project automatically rebuilds to incorporate the changes. Each time you rebuild a project, the project files are overwritten from the starting point of the rebuild process.

To test a project, you may need to rebuild a project many times. However, after the project is in production, rebuilding may overwrite files you have already modified. If you have changed the generated code, choose to rebuild the project from the compiling project step. This compiles and deploys the project without overwriting your changes. If, however, the Transaction Designer project has been changed, you must completely rebuild the project to pick up the changes.

To rebuild a Web Builder project
  1. Select the project you want to rebuild, right-click Rebuild.

    The Rebuild Project dialog box displays.

  2. Select one of the processing steps as the starting point for the build. The processing steps vary depending on the type of project you are rebuilding.

  3. Click Build.

    During the rebuild process, Web Builder detects any modified files and creates a backup folder in the project folder. Depending on the type and scope of your modifications, you can choose to:

    • Keep your changes
      Select this option if you have made complex modifications; use the file in the backups folder to manually update your modified file with any features that may have been overwritten.
    • Discard your changes
      Select this option to use the original file generated by Web Builder; use the file saved in the backups folder to copy your modifications into the original file.
    • Apply to all modified files
      Select this option to avoid multiple prompts for keeping or discarding changes as the build proceeds.
