Step 6. Export or Publish the Adapter

Step 6. Export or Publish the Adapter

Use the
Informatica Connector Toolkit
to export or publish the adapter. You can export the adapter files to a location or publish the adapter on local Informatica services and client directory.
  1. In the
    Connector Navigator
    view, right-click the project and select
    Publish
    .
    The
    Export/Publish Informatica Connector
    dialog box appears.
  2. Click
    Browse
    and specify a location to export the adapter.
    The
    Export Location
    defaults to the adapter project workspace.
  3. If you want to use the
    Informatica Connector Toolkit
    to install the adapter on a local Informatica services and client machine, select
    Publish connector on local Informatica services and client
    and perform the following steps:
    1. Specify the location of the local Informatica server directory.
    2. Specify the location of the client installation directory.
    To reinstall the adapter or install a newer version of the adapter, select
    Upgrade
    .
  4. Click
    Next
    to view the contents of the client and server bundles.
  5. Click
    Finish
    .
If you export the adapter, the
Informatica Connector Toolkit
bundles the client and service artifacts and generates batch files that you can use to install the adapter. If you encounter any error or fail to export the adapter, refer to the <adapter_name>_codebuilder.log file for more information. The <adapter_name>_codebuilder.log file is available in the <Eclipse workspace>/<adapter project> folder.
If you publish the adapter, the
Informatica Connector Toolkit
restarts the Informatica domain and registers the adapter with the Informatica services. The Data Integration Service can connect to the data source and you can create connections to the data source in the Developer tool and Administrator tool. If you fail to publish the adapter, install the adapter manually.
If the Informatica domain is not available after you publish the adapter, ensure that no Informatica services are running in the domain and then publish the adapter.
