In this earlier post, I talked about a way to automate the build and deployment for OSB, but I did not go so far as to get that working in Maven, though you certainly could. But, OSB PS6 has added a new tool called configjar which lets you build a sbconfig.jar file without needing to have eclipse/OEPE/OSB IDE installed on the machine where you are doing the build. You do still need OSB, but removing that IDE dependency is a big step forward.
You can find configjar sitting under your Oracle_OSB1/tools/configjar directory in your OSB PS6 installation. There is a readme file there that tells you how to use it from ANT and WLST. Here, I want to show you how to use it from Maven, and therefore Hudson, etc. too.
For this post, I went into the OSB IDE and created a simple project called osbProject1 which contains a single Proxy Service called (imaginatively) ProxyService1. It is just a plain old ‘any’ proxy service with essentially no implementation at all. But it is enough to do what we need to do. Read the full article here.
