Building and Running BIS Samples

The BIS Samples include an installation verification application and several simple applications that illustrate the major Xcentrisity techniques for constructing web applications and services using BIS. These samples include complete source code as well as all of the XSLT transforms necessary to run them. In addition, each includes a batch file (or shell script) that will build the operational web application from source. This is convenient if you wish to experiment with modifications to the samples, or if you want to use the samples as the basis for your own web application.

Be sure that a command prompt is present and the current directory is the src directory for the sample you are building. At this point the sample may be built by typing (for BIS/IIS):


or (for BIS/Apache):

After the processing has been completed and a command prompt appears, you will have rebuilt the sample and generated new files in the bin directory
