you just need to export your project, and upload the exported files to the server...
hope that helps
Sorry for the slow reply.
I hadn't read the cite as it takes so darn long to navigate (we are talking about up to an hour per search). I have now read it. If I understand it correctly, you do not deploy a normal .war file, but you must manually position the pieces on the server yourself. Is that correct?
Thanks for the reply. There are so many fires going on with this that I lose track sometimes.
The "release" file from export is used, but do I need access to the server to manually put in all the pieces?
Copying files manually is one option, but there are others.
If you use the FlexBuilder plugin with Eclipse and the Web Tools
Platform (WTP), then you can create a Flex project with an output
directory that follows the standard WAR file structure and deploy it to
a variety of app servers from within the IDE. The Eclipse IDE for Java
EE developers incorporates WTP:
When you create your project you need to select an Application Server
Type of J2EE, check / uncheck Livecycle Data Services depending on
whether you are using them (also check it if you are using BlazeDS), and
then select the appropriate options on the next screen. You will need to
have an application server installed.
When you are ready to deploy your war to a QA or production server you
can run the Export Release Build feature directly into your War file
directory structure. Then to export a zipped up war file from your
project you need to switch to the Java perspective, right click on the
project and choose Export -> War file.
Thanks for the reply. I'm printing it and will use it. What is the "Web Tools Platform" and does it come built-in with Eclipse and Flex Builder or do I need to get it?
