Creating EclipseLink DBWS Services using the DBWSBuilder utility

The EclipseLink DBWS design-time utility DBWSBuilder is used to create deployment files. DBWSBuilder is a Java application that processes an EclipseLink DBWS builder XML file to produce all the required deployment artifacts.

Be sure to set the following environment variables in the <ECLIPSELINK_HOME>\utils\dbws\setenv.cmd (or setenv.sh file) before invoking DBWSBuilder:

  • JAVA_HOME
  • DRIVER_CLASSPATH

There are script files provided for invoking DBWSBuilder. They are located in the <ECLIPSELINK_HOME>\utils\dbws directory. The scripts are dbwsbuilder.cmd for Windows usage, and dbwsbuilder.sh for other operating systems.

DBWSBuilder usage - [] indicates optional argument:
prompt > dbwsbuilder.cmd -builderFile {path_to_builder.xml} -stageDir {path_to_stageDir} -packageAs[:archive_flag] {packager} [additional args]
Available packagers:
  -packageAs:[default=archive] javase [jarFilename]
  -packageAs:[default=archive] wls [warFilename]
