Hi Matt. <div>&nbsp;</div> There is a 4th option available, one that I use exclusively. <div>&nbsp;</div> Most of your article is revolving around the developer's WID tooling. The WPS *runtime* has the ws_ant.sh|ws_ant.bat file available to it. The WPS profile includes the additional jar file, wpsanttasks.jar, that includes the serviceDeploy ant task. <div>&nbsp;</div> A good SCM practice is to build on the target platform/architecture that you are doing to deploy on. We deploy onto AIX, so we build on AIX. <div>&nbsp;</div> We also use this to build using Maven (which wrappers ws_ant: see http://mojo.codehaus.org/was6-maven-plugin/examples/generating-process-server-ears.html). <div>&nbsp;</div> In addition, this level of tooling also allows us to use a Continuous Integration server (Hudson) to perform our builds and releases. <div>&nbsp;</div> This approach has worked very well for us. <div>&nbsp;</div> -Chris <br />

Hi Chris, <div>&nbsp;</div> Thanks for reading and the informative comment. ws_ant is also a very useful tool to build with and with the WPS extensions for serviceDeploy it can easily be used as you state. Thank you for the great information! <div>&nbsp;</div> -matt-

We use BPM751 standard and BPM8 standard. <br /> Do you have any solution using Ant script for snapshot deployment? <div>&nbsp;</div>

Hi Tina, <div>&nbsp;</div> Great question. <div>&nbsp;</div> Unfortunately, the ant scripts currently can only be used in BPM for the advanced content (i.e. modules created with the IBM Integration Designer) and is addressed here: <div>&nbsp;</div> http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/dmndhelp/v8r0mx/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.wbpm.admin.doc%2Ftopics%2Ftant.html <div>&nbsp;</div> If you are just looking for a scripted way to perform deployments with BPM Standard though, you can utilize the offline deployment procedure. More information on that may be found here: <div>&nbsp;</div> http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/dmndhelp/v8r0mx/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.wbpm.admin.doc%2Ftopics%2Freleasing_installing_procs_D.html <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div>
