Java CAPS Tip : Reconfiguring Java CAPS EAR Files

Given the new reconfiguration functionality available within the Java CAPS 6 release you may be wondering why this type of functionality is not available within the previous releases of the tool set. Well their is a little known, undocumented, tool that is available from Sun Java CAPS support called iConfigure. The iConfigure tool will allow you to take an existing 5.1.x ear file and change its configuration based on a supplied, delta, XML configuration file. As a result of this you can now redeploy and reconfigure you Java CAPS 5.1.x EAR file without needing to rebuild that EAR within Enterprise Designer.

My intention within a future blog entry (Java CAPS Application Configuration) is to describe to people already using the iConfigure tool how they can successfully migrate their configuration information from their XML file to the Java CAPS 6 properties based implementation thus facilitating ease of migration.

This is exactly what I'm looking to do! I look forward to this post.

Strictly speaking the description you give for Java CAPS 5.1.x is only for the out of the box product. Clients can request the iConfigure tool from support and it will provide the same functionality using xml files rather than properties files.

The iConfigure Tool is available through your local Support Department.

Hey hi, If iConfigure tool is not available with the Local support Department, where we can find it then? Are there any link available for downloading the tool.

Because the tool is now supported by engineering the only way to get a copy is through support. It should be registered on there systems. This has been the method used in the UK and US.
