Automated deployment to production

Automated deployment to production

Automated deployment to production

Has anyone created a way to automatically deploy maps, systems, resource registry files to a production environment?  I am not talking about opening a MSD file and deploying.  I am talking about runing a script or using a tool that will do the compile and deploy from a list of systems/maps.

RE: Automated deployment to production

Although not deploying to production, we have an automatic build an deploy process for our development and test systems. The process is built around ant and integrates nicely into our revision control system (CVS).

RE: Automated deployment to production

What is "ant"?

RE: Automated deployment to production


its a build tool, part of the Apache project.

RE: Automated deployment to production

Not sure what platform you are on. I maintain a system that runs on windows 2003 server. I use a batch file to execute the deploy scripts that are defined in the MSD. The problem is that you need to have the source available i.e you would need the batch file and source on the production server and execute the batch file on the production server. If this sounds like something that you would like to pursue I can get you a copy of the batch file.

RE: Automated deployment to production

You can use IFD to create deployment script and deploy to production so long as you have permission to ftp to it.

RE: Automated deployment to production

Some systems run on Wintel and others run on unix, both sun and aix.  We do not store souce files on the unix machines.  Mercwiz, I would be interested in checking out the script, if you please.  Thanks.

RE: Automated deployment to production

If you use the IFD you only need the source on the machine where the .msd is created.
