You can add files and directories to the customized installation package (CIP). For example, although you can deploy EAR files in the Profile Customization panel, those EAR files must deploy with default deployment options. If deploy an EAR with different options, include the EAR file as an additional file. Then include a script in the Profile Customization panel to deploy the EAR file.

Scripts can run at any of four times, at CIP installation time and at full uninstall time, and at profile creation or deletion time. A script can call other scripts that you can include as additional files.

All additional files and directories are in the installed CIP in the cip_uid_root/userFiles directory.

Add Files...

Browse within a configured system or within a cache of relevant files to select additional files to include in the CIP.

For example, you can include one or more script files that are called by a script listed in the Profile Customization panel. When the script runs at profile creation or deletion time, the script can call other scripts that you include as additional files.

Similarly, a script listed in the Install and Uninstall Scripts panel runs at CIP installation or CIP deletion time. Such a script can call other scripts that you include as additional files.

You can include a directory full of scripts, for example. Or a directory full of EAR files.
