There are many ways you can organize and deploy WebObject WebObjects JavaClient applications. One of the ways to do it is through WebStart. You could manually create a WebStart app, but WebObjects can also do it for you, taking care of JNLP creation, jar organization, and many WebStart nasty bits.

  1. Create a "javaclientbuild.xml" file in the root of your project, with the following as its contents:
    Code Block
    xml
    xml
    <project name="javaclient" default="javaclient" basedir=".">
    	<target name="setProps">
    		<property file="${user.home}${file.separator}build.properties" />
    		<property file="build.properties" />
    		<property file="${user.home}${file.separator}Library${file.separator}wobuild.properties" />
    		<condition property="wo.properties.check.failed">
    			<not>
        				<and>
          					<isset property="wo.wosystemroot" />
          					<isset property="wo.wolocalroot" />
        				</and>
        			</not>
      		</condition>
     
    		<fail message="Could not find ${user.home}${file.separator}Library${file.separator}wobuild.properties." if="wo.properties.check.failed" />
    	</target>
    	<target name="javaclient" depends="setProps">
    
    		<!-- project client-side classes -->
    		<mkdir dir="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/WebServerResources/Java" />
    		<jar basedir="${classes.dir}" includes="**/client/**/*.class,**/common/**/*.class" 			jarfile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/WebServerResources/Java/${project.name}.jar">
    		</jar>
    
    		<!-- Launch Scripts and WOBootstrap.jar -->
    		<mkdir dir="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/MacOS" />
    		<mkdir dir="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/UNIX" />
    		<mkdir dir="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/Windows" />
    
    		<copy file="/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/WebObjects Support/UnixLaunch.sh" tofile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/${project.name}" />
    		<chmod file="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/${project.name}" perm="ugo+rx" />
    		<copy file="/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/WebObjects Support/WinLaunch.CMD" tofile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/${project.name}.CMD" />
    		<copy file="/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/WebObjects Support/WinLaunch.CMD" tofile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/Windows/${project.name}.CMD" />
    		<copy file="/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/WebObjects Support/WOBootstrap.jar" tofile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/WOBootstrap.jar" />
    
    		<copy file="/Library/Application Support/Apple/Developer Tools/WebObjects Support/UnixLaunchClient.sh" tofile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/MacOS/${project.name}_Client" />
    		<chmod file="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/MacOS/${project.name}_Client" perm="ugo+rx" />
    		<copy file="ClasspathClient.txt" tofile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/MacOS/ClasspathClient.txt" />
    
    		<!-- D2JC only -->
    		<copy file="user.d2wmodel" tofile="build/${project.name}.woa/Contents/Resources/user.d2wmodel" />
    
    	</target>
    </project>
