Configure ESDEMO

Walks you through the process of creating a deployment folder and configuring ESDEMO to use it.
Restriction: This topic applies to Windows environments (local development) only.

To successfully deploy and run or debug a Java service interface, you must have an enterprise server instance started in Enterprise Server. For these tutorials, we provide the ESDEMO enterprise server instance. If you do not have Administrator privileges to the Enterprise Developer installation folder, or if you have not started Enterprise Developer as an administrator, before completing the remainder of these tutorials you must create a deployment folder and then configure ESDEMO to enable successful deployment.

Start Enterprise Server Administration

  1. To start the Server Explorer, click Window > Show View > Other > Micro Focus > Server Explorer; then click OK.
  2. From Server Explorer in Enterprise Developer, right-click Local [localhost:86]; then click Open Administration Page.

    The Enterprise Server Administration Home page starts in an Enterprise Developer window.

Configure a Deployment Directory

Note: The default deployment folder used by Enterprise Server is a subfolder to your Enterprise Developer installation folder. If you have Administrator privileges to the Enterprise Developer installation structure, or if you started Enterprise Developer using Run as Administrator, you are not required to complete this section of the tutorial. Otherwise, you must complete this section to create and configure an alternative deployment folder.
Create the deploy folder
Without Administrator privileges, you cannot deploy to Enterprise Server from the default Enterprise Developer deployment folder. To ensure successful deployment, create a deploy folder in your ProgramEJB project.
  1. In the Application Explorer view, right-click the project; then select New > Folder > Folder from the context menu.
  2. In the Folder name field, type deploy; click Finish.
Import the .mfdeploy File
The new deploy folder must contain the .mfdeploy configuration file. You import the file from the Application Explorer view.
  1. From the Application Explorer view, right-click the project folder; then select Import from the context menu.
  2. Expand General; then click double-click File System.
  3. Click the Browse button that corresponds to the From directory field, and navigate to

    where InstallFolder is your Enterprise Developer installation folder. By default, this is %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer.

  4. Click OK.
  5. Check .mfdeploy in the right pane.
  6. Click Finish to import the file into the project.
Define the Deployment Directory
Now you need to configure the ESDEMO instance by defining the new deploy project folder as the deployment folder.
  1. On the Enterprise Server Administration Home page in the Communications Processes column for your enterprise server instance, click the Details button that corresponds to Listeners.
  2. Click the Listeners tab.
  3. In the row for the Web listener name, click Edit.
  4. Scroll down to the Configuration Information field; then within the field, scroll down until you find the relevant code, then change:


    where ProjectFolder is the full path to your project folder, using forward slashes to separate subfolders. For example:
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Home to return to the Home page.
