Deploying HCL Transformation Extender maps

After you tested the running of IBM Transformation Extender maps in the Design Studio, you can deploy them from Design Studio to a Sterling B2B Integrator server map repository.

About this task

To deploy a IBM Transformation Extender map or maps to a Sterling B2B Integrator server map repository:

Procedure

  1. Configure the Design Studio connection properties for IBM Transformation Extender maps in the Sterling B2B Integrator preferences pane.
  2. Configure the Design Studio Check In Map Service options for IBM Transformation Extender maps in the Sterling B2B Integrator preferences pane.

    To make the version of the map that you deploy from the Design Studio the default map in the Sterling B2B Integrator map repository, see Making the checked-in map the default.
  3. Make the selections to deploy your map on a Sterling B2B Integrator server in either one of the two following ways, based on the view you use:
    • In the Navigator view or Extender Navigator view, select one or more compiled map files that you built manually for the Sterling B2B Integrator server platform, and right-click the map executable file.
    • In the Outline view or Composition view, select one or more maps, and right-click the maps.

      You can select multiple compiled and executable IBM Transformation Extender maps to deploy at the same time using the standard selection operations. Press Shift and click a range of maps, or press Ctrl and click individual maps.

  4. Click Deploy to Sterling B2B Integrator.

    This starts the map deploy operation. For more details about what occurs during the map deploy operation, see Deploy operation details.

  5. To deploy the maps in the background, from the Deploy to Sterling B2B Integrator: host_URL window, click Run in Background.
  6. You can monitor the operation's progress in the Progress view, and view the progress indicator. If you did not open the Progress view before you clicked Deploy to Sterling B2B Integrator, you can open it in either one of the following ways:
    • Click the green progress icon.
    • Click Window > Show View > Other, and under General in the Show View window, click Progress.

    The Progress view opens.

    You can also cancel the map deploy operation in this view.
