deploy(webMethods)

The deploy operation is used to deploy webMethods applications into target environment .Target environment can be a standalone Integration Server (or) a group of Integration Servers in a cluster.

Deployment process is also implemented with 2 options as shown in the below diagram.

This deploy operation performs the following deployment activities, when the build is generated by webMethods ABE component (refer the left side steps of the below picture);

  • Generate the Project Automator XML file based on the given environment properties & the build version selected in FlexDeploy project.
  • Execute webMethods Project Automator command line script to facilitate automatic project creation. in webMethods Deployer
  • Execute webMethods Deployer command line script to automate the deployment for the specified project towards target environment.

Deploy operation should be used in deploy workflows.

Tip

 As a best practice, use webMethods Deployer based deployment which has efficient features such as simulation, handling clusters, detailed reports & logs, inter-dependency check etc.
