imtkmake command

Enables you to create and deploy a COBOL program-based service interface, and generate a client to access the deployed service running on an enterprise server.

Syntax:

imtkmake -defmap          service=service-name

The path to the application files for the application running on the enterprise server.
appserver=J2EE-application-server-name
This is the name and version of the J2EE application server for which an EJB is generated and to which an EJB is deployed. This defines the deployment descriptors that are generated.

This is mandatory when generating EJBs and EJB clients. In other words, mandatory when using the -generate or -genclient functions with type set to EJB. The values must be within quotes since they contain spaces. For example:

  • "JBoss 5.1.0"
  • "WebSphere 7.0"

Note that this parameter must come after the other parameters.

See -queryAppServerList for how to list the available servers.

The base path used in the URI of the service.
bean=bean-name
For EJB generation, the name of the bean to generate. Defaults to service-name.

  • WebSphere's j2ee.jar
  • WebLogic's weblogic.jar
clientdir=directory-name

version=version
The service version used in the URI of the service.

Comments:

  • Execute imtkmake from an Enterprise Developer command prompt in the directory that contains your COBOL program file.
  • This command performs several functions. You must execute the following against the same program in the this order:
    • -defmap
    • -generate
    • -query (optional)
    • -deploy
    • -showlog (optional)
    • -genclient and/or -genwsdl (optional)
  • You can combine some functions on the same command line:
    • -defmap and -generate together, to create a service interface with default mappings and generate deployment files to be deployed at a later time.
    • -generate and -deploy together, to generate deployment files for an existing service interface, deploy them to an enterprise server.
    • -defmap, -generate, and -deploy together to perform all three functions.
    Note: When you combine two or more functions on the same command line, you do not need to repeat parameters that are common.
  • You can combine the use of the command line functions with the use of the Service Interfaces feature. For example, you might create the service interface and customize it. You could then use the command line to deploy the service interface.
  • If you use the Service Interfaces feature to specify mapping properties for the service interface using the Mapping Properties dialog box, Enterprise Developer creates an XML file to hold the settings. You can specify this XML file to the -generate function using the settings=properties-filename parameter. The mapping properties XML file contains values for the optional parameters associated with the -generate function. If you specify any of those parameters on the command line, these override the values contained in the mapping properties XML file.
  • You can use () as delimiters around parameters rather than = before them, for example, src(book.cbl) instead of src=book.cbl.
  • When you deploy a service interface using imtkmake -deploy, imtkmake looks in the following places in the following order to find items to deploy, and uses the first instance of each deployable item found:
    • MFDS. If the deployment items are in MFDS, any configuration settings in the [destination] section are used. For example:
      [destination]
         server=ESDEMO
         listener=Web Services and J2EE
      
    • MFDS. If the deployment itemsare in MFDS, but there aren't any configuration settings, imtkmake uses the enterprise server that owns the service.

Examples:

The following command creates a service interface with default mapping for the program book.cbl:

imtkmake -defmap src=book.cbl service=wmapserv 
                 type=webservice

The following command generates a Web service for the wmapserv service interface:

imtkmake -generate service=wmapserv
                   type=webservice
                   exithandler=myhandler
                   namespace=http://corpuri.org/wmapserv

The following command generates an EJB for the JMapServ service interface:

imtkmake -generate service=JMapServ
                   type=ejb
                   bean=JMap
                   classpath=/usr/java131/lib/j2ee.jar
                   ejbname=JMapEJB
                   esruntime=jmapconf.rtc
                   jarname=JMap.jar
                   package=com.corp.jmap
                   session=stateful                          
                   appserver="WebLogic 10.3.5"

The following command generates a Web service for the wmapserv service interface and deploys it to the enterprise server ESDEMO. The additional data file data-files-path\bookfile.dat (Windows) or data-files-path/bookfile.dat (UNIX) is deployed:

On Windows platforms:

imtkmake -generate service=wmapserv type=webservice
         -deploy server=ESDEMO,Deployer data-files-path\bookfile.dat

On UNIX platforms:

imtkmake -generate service=wmapserv type=webservice
         -deploy server=ESDEMO,Deployer data-files-path/bookfile.dat

The following command deploys a Web service that has already been generated in wmapserv.car to the enterprise server ESDEMO:

imtkmake -deploy carname=wmapserv.car 
                 server=ESDEMO,Deployer

This submit is a successful deployment, as indicated by the 202 return code, and the presence of the URL in the response message.

The following command displays the deploylog.txt file from the URL http://10.120.72.229:47704/uploads/cw_diYLq:

imtkmake -showlog deploydir=http://10.120.72.229:47704/uploads/cw_diYLq

The following command creates a COBOL client program for the service wmapserv:

imtkmake -genclient type=webservice 
                    service=wmapserv

The following command creates a COBOL client program for the REST service service1 using the base path /servicesApp/ and version 1.0:

imtkmake -genclient service=service1 type=rest 
                    url=http://localhost:9003 
                    basePath=/servicesApp/ 
                    version=1.0 

The following command creates a COBOL client program for the service wmapserv using the service's WSDL file:

On Windows platforms:

imtkmake -genclientwsdl clientwsdl=wmapserv.wsdl 

On UNIX platforms:

imtkmake -genclientwsdl clientwsdl=$PWD/wmapserv.wsdl 
                        clientdir=$PWD

The following command creates an EJB service interface with default mapping using the requiresNew transaction attribute:

imtkmake -defmap type=ejb 
                 src=calculator.cbl 
                 service=service13.xml 
                 transactionAttribute=requiresNew

The following command generates the required files for the REST service service1 using the base path /servicesApp/ and version 1.0:

imtkmake -generate type=rest
                   url=http://localhost:9003 
                   basePath=/servicesApp/ 
                   version=1.0
                   service=service1

The following command creates a COBOL client program for the wmapserv service using its JSON Schema file:

imtkmake -genclientjson clientjson=wmapserv.json
