Converting a static library to a shared library
When you use the Convert to Application or Library wizards, you can convert one or more projects to static libraries. You can then convert a static library to a shared library manually
Before you begin
About this task
- Create a shared library in the IBM® Integration Toolkit by clicking .
Enter a temporary name for the shared library, then click Finish.
The name must be unique.

You must preserve the folder structure when you move the contents from a static library to a shared library. To reveal all the folders that you must move, click Hide Categories on the Application Development view toolbar.
A message warns that moving resources to another location breaks project references. Accept this message. You will fix the broken references by renaming the libraries.
Rename the static library so that you can use the old name for the new shared library.
Right-click the static library, click Rename, and enter a name.
Rename the shared library so that it has the old name of the static library.
By renaming the shared library, broken project references are fixed.
