Business-level application configuration scripts


The scripting library provides multiple script procedures to automate the appserver configurations. Use the scripts in this topic to create, query, and manage the business-level applications. We can run each script individually or combine procedures to create custom automation scripts.

The AdminBLA script procedures are located in...

WAS_HOME/scriptLibraries/application/V70

Use the following script procedures to configure and administer your business-level applications:

Use the following script procedures to query the business-level application configurations:

 

addCompUnit

This script adds assets, shared libraries, or additional business-level applications as composition units to the empty business-level application. A composition unit represents an asset in a business-level application. A configuration unit enables the asset contents to interact with other assets in the application. It also enables WAS run time to load and run asset contents. To run the script, specify the business-level application name and the composition unit source arguments, as defined in the following table:


Table 1. addCompUnit argument descriptions

Argument Description
blaName Name of the business-level application to which the system adds the composition unit.
compUnitID Name of the composition unit to add to the business-level application of interest.
deployableUnit Optionally specifies the name of the deployable unit for the asset. A deployable unit is the smallest portion of an asset that can be individually chosen for deployment
compUnitName Optionally specifies the name for the composition unit to add.
compUnitDescription Optionally specifies a description for the new composition unit.
startingWeight Optionally specifies the starting weight of the composition unit.
target Optionally specifies the target to which the composition unit is mapped.

Syntax

AdminBLA.addCompUnit(blaName, compUnitID, deployableUnit, compUnitName,  compUnitDescription, startingWeight, target, activationPlan)
