How to deploy NVO to EAServer 6.1

In this section we will demonstrate how to deploy NVO to EAServer 6.1 in PowerBuilder 11. The example NVO used in this section is a simple NVO.

Configuring to Generate Stub and Skeleton

In Windows, run the following command at a prompt window to make sure Stub and Skeleton will be generated during the NVO deployment:

%EAServer%\bin\configure corba-java-stubs-on

Adding EAServer profile in PowerBuilder

Use the PowerBuilder component wizard for deploying an NVO to EAServer. Before using the wizard, create an EAServer profile in PowerBuilder, which will connect to the EAServer that hosts Appeon Server.

An EAServer profile stores information on connection settings used to connect to EAServer. The profile you create is used by wizards that require a connection to EAServer.

To add an EAServer profile to PowerBuilder:

Step 1: Start EAServer, if it is not already running. Make sure that EAServer is running during the following steps.

Step 2: Click the Application Server Profile button in PowerBar1 or choose Tools | Application Server Profile from the PowerBuilder menu.

Click Add on the Application Server Profile dialog box that is displayed.

Figure 19. 

Step 3: The Edit Application Server Profile dialog box pops up. Type the information contained in the following table into each field. And then verify the EAServer profile by clicking the Test button. Note: EAServer must be running for the test to be successful.

In this field...

You should...

Step 4: Make sure that connection testing is successful.

Deploying NVOs to EAServer

Use the EAServer Component Wizard to deploy EAServer components from PowerBuilder.

To deploy the NVO into EAServer:

Step 1: Start EAServer, if it is not already started.

Step 2: Choose File | New from the PowerBuilder menu. Then select the EAServer Component Wizard icon under the Project tab in the New dialog box, and click OK.

Step 13: The wizard now creates a component project. The Project Painter for the component opens automatically in PowerBuilder, and the project name (p_appeontutor_eascomps) appears in the left system tree list.

Click the Deploy button in PowerBuilder PainterBar1, or choose Design | Deploy Project from the PowerBuilder menu to start deployment of the component.

Note: Ensure that EAServer is running.

Step 14: The deployment starts and relevant information is displayed in the Output window. When the process is complete, the Output window will display "Finished Deploy of p_appeontutor_eascomps".

Figure 33. 

Step 15: Close the p_appeontutor_eascomps Project Painter.

Step 16: Check if the Stub is generated in the folder ${EAServer}\genfiles\java\classes. If the stub is not generated manually compile the Stub by executing the following command at a prompt window:

${EAServer}\bin\stub-compiler package_name.component_name.

In the deployment mentioned in this section the package name is n_tutor, the component name is nvo_tutor.
