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
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
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.
