Creating and Deploying a Business Process Archive Contribution

Creating and Deploying a Business Process Archive Contribution

View the selected deployment descriptor file(s) and other project resources to deploy. On the Catalog Resources page, view the list of selected and excluded resources to ensure your contribution contains all files to be managed as a unit. Upon export, deploy the file and save a script to redeploy the .bpr file.
To deploy your process to A Process Server, you package a contribution of processes and resources in a business process archive file (.bpr file), which is similar to a Web archive file.
Before creating a .bpr file, you must create a .pdd file, described in
Creating a Process Deployment Descriptor File
. Optionally, you can additional resources, such as Process Central forms and tasks.
We recommend that you create only one BPR file per project. The processes and resources are managed as a unit of files on the server. For details, see
Managing Deployment Contributions
.
To create a .bpr file:
  1. If you have created and used a project reference for the current project, be sure to deploy that contribution first. Project dependencies must be deployed to the server first.
  2. Select
    File > Export > Orchestration > Contribution-Business Process Archive
    .
  3. Notice that all process deployment descriptor files (.pdd files) are pre-selected to include in the archive, as shown in the following example.
  4. Select the export location and filename for the BPR file.
  5. Select a
    Server Deployment Type
    :
    • None
      . Select this option if you do not wish to deploy your BPR archive upon completion of the export.
    • File
      . Select this option to save the archive upon export to a file system location. In the
      Deployment location
      field, browse to any folder.
    • Web Service
      . Select this option if your server is running and you want to automatically deploy to it. Is your server is secured, provide the username and password for access to it.
  6. If desired, type in a
    Group
    name and description for this contribution. On the Process Console you can use the group name as a selection filter for listing files. The description appears on the Contribution detail page of the Console.
  7. If desired, select the option to
    Save the contribution specification as an Ant script in the workspace
    , and select a location for this file, such as the Orchestration Folder's deploy folder. For details on this option, see
    Using a BPRD Script to Regenerate and Deploy a BPR Contribution
    .
  8. Click
    Next
    to view a list of
    catalog resources
    . See the following topics.
    • Contribution Preference
    • Deploying Project Dependencies and Viewing Excluded Dependencies
    • Deploying Additional Resources
  9. Click
    Finish
    to create and export the .bpr file and optional .bprd file.
  10. Refresh the project to view the new BPR file.
