How to setup WTP batch Build locally

1. Setup prereqs

a. apache ant 1.7 =>
b. Java SDK 1.4 and 1.5

2. Check out build files

mkdir <BUILD HOME>, for example mkdir /shared/webtools
checkout the releng.control project from CVS

3. Modifying properties files for your local build environment (you can do this either in eclipse or by opening the files from command line) a. You can always get a fresh copy of all properties files from CVS by running the <BUILD HOME>/releng.control/ script, however to avoid your already modified properties files from being overwritten when the command is executed, you should make a copy of the properties directory first and modify the copied version e.g. cp –R <BUILD HOME>/releng.control/localBuildExample ../new_props

b. Modifying <BUILD HOME>/releng.control/commonVariations.shsource BUILD_HOME to location of where your java and ant ANT_HOME to location of where your ant JAVA_4_HOME to location of where your java 4 JAVA_5_HOME to location of where your java 5

LOCAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES_DIR to the copied properties directory from the last step


SKIPUSER=true ;since this is a local build c. Modyfing <BUILD HOME>/new props dir/ Update this file to correspond to which JAVA you’re using locally

4. Running the build:

a. In <BUILD HOME>/releng.control/ b. ./ –f cc_project_build.xml –Dprojectname=wtp-R3.0-I

Note: projectname is mandatory, all available projects are

wtp-R3.0-I for current 3.0 integration build
wtp-R2.0-M for 2.0 maintenance build
wtp-R3.0-N HEAD build for 3

5. Checking the build results

After the build is done, you should find the following directories created inside the <BUILD HOME> directory


Viewing the results

a. Run <workspace dir>/releng.control/./ to retrieve the necessary files from CVS to display results

b. Setup alias on linux to work with default webserver

i./sbin/service httpd start to start webserver and ensure http://localhost can be accessed post starting webserver
ii.Modify /etc/http/conf/httpd.conf to setup alias to your <BUILD HOME dir>
Alias /wtpbuild/ <BUILD HOME dir>/
<Directory "<Build Home dir> /">
Options Indexes MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
iii. Restart webserver to pick up changes /sbin/service httpd restart
iv. http://localhost/wtpbuild should bring up the index.php file where you can view the build and test results
