Asant and Ant

We use script asant, which is located in the J2EE 1.4 SDK bin directory, to build the source code of this application. asant is a wrapper around Ant which is a Java-based build tool like make, which has been developed under the auspices of the Apache Software Foundation. Ant version 1.5.3 and 1.6 beta 1 may also be used to build and deploy the applications.


Note: The I-Card Manager application bundle comes with pre-built binaries. To deploy these binaries and avoid building the application, consult the I-Card Manager installation instructions.


Build I-Card Manager application

This section explains how to build the application binaries for the I-Card Manager application. Building all the application binaries and performing other tasks with Ant involves invoking asant from <higgins_broker.home>/apps/icard directory of the Higgins Broker installation.

Before building the application, you need to configure the <higgins_broker.home>/build.properties file to match your enviroment. You need to set the following properties:

Property Name Description Examples j2ee.home The absolute path to the directory where J2EE SDK is installed. c:\j2sdkee1.4 (on Windows) or /home/mydir/j2sdkee1.4 (on Unix)
