Creating a BAR file that includes a subflow created as a .msgflow file

When deploying a subflow created as a .msgflow file, you need to understand how IBM® Integration Bus packages subflows into BAR files, and what are the configurations that you can create to deploy into the IBM Integration Bus run time.

Before you begin

Set up the initial configuration. See Creating the initial configuration for the Error Handler sample.


To create a BAR file in IBM Integration Bus, complete the following steps:

  1. Create a BAR file for each configuration that you want to deploy to the run time. For more information, see Creating a BAR file.
  2. Add files to the BAR file. For more information, see Adding resources to a BAR file.
  3. Configure the BAR file and its resources. For more information, see Editing configurable properties in a BAR file.
  4. Choose whether you want to deploy the resources in the BAR file in their compile mode or as objects. For more information, see BAR builder behavior for subflows created as .msgflow files.
  5. Save and build the BAR file in the BAR builder.

What to do next

Deploy a subflow created as a .msgflow file. For more information, see Deploying a subflow created as a .msgflow file.
