Create and Configure a deploy Directory

Provides instructions for creating and configuring a deploy directory where ED writes deployed components of the ACCTWS Web service.
Important: The default deployment directory used by Enterprise Server is a subdirectory, deploy, within your Enterprise Developer installation directory structure. If you have Administrator privileges to this subdirectory, or if you started Visual Studio using Run as Administrator, you are not required to complete the following tasks. Otherwise, you must complete them to create and configure an alternative deployment directory.
Create the deploy directory
Without Administrator privileges, you cannot deploy to Enterprise Server from the default Enterprise Developer deployment folder. To ensure successful deployment, create a deploy directory in your CICSScreenWS project.
  1. In the Solution Explorer, right-click the project, and then select Add > New Folder from the context menu.
  2. Type deploy; then press Enter.
Import the .mfdeploy file
The new deploy folder must contain the .mfdeploy configuration file. You import the file from the Solution Explorer.
  1. From the Solution Explorer, right-click the deploy folder; then select Add > Existing Item.
  2. Browse to the %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer\deploy folder.
  3. Set the filter drop-down list to All Files (*.*).
  4. Double-click the .mfdeploy file.
Define the deployment folder
Now you need to configure the CICSEXT enterprise server region by defining the new deploy project folder as the deployment folder.
  1. In ESCWA click NATIVE.
  2. In the ESCWA navigation pane, expand Directory Servers > Default, and then select your enterprise server instance.
  3. On the GENERAL drop-down list, select Listeners.
  4. Expand Communications Process 1, and click Web.
  5. In the LISTENER PROPERTIES pane, scroll down to the Custom Configuration field; then within the field, scroll down until you find the relevant code, then change:



    where project-name is the name of the project.

  6. Click APPLY.
