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.


Exporting I-Card Manager application as a Web Archive (WAR) file

A Web archive (WAR) file is a packaged Web application that can be exported to test, publish, and deploy the resources developed within a Web project.

To export a WAR file from a Web project, do the following:

  • Right click on a Web project folder and select Export from the pop-up menu. Then select WAR file in the Export window and then select Next.
  • Specify the Web project you want to export (this field is primed if you used the pop-up menu to open the wizard), and specify a location for the new WAR file
  • Optional: Optionally, supply WAR export Options, such as whether or not to include Java™ source files in the WAR, and whether to overwrite any existing resources during the export process. Source files are not usually included in a WAR file, because they are not necessary for the server to run the web application.
  • Click Finish.

Note: The Eclipse Web Tools Platform should be installed. More about WTP.
