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.

Ensure that a command prompt is present and the current directory is the src directory for the sample that you are building. The build script may rely on environment variables - open the script in an editor and set the necessary environment variables before executing the script. Execute the script by typing:


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
