Deploying the component to Jaguar
About deploying Jaguar components
To deploy a component to Jaguar, you need to create a new
project and build the project. The new project lists the object(s)
that will be included and specifies the name of the output library
that will contain the generated component(s).
Using the wizards to create projects
You can use the Jaguar Component Start, Object, and Project
wizards to create projects for building Jaguar components. The wizards
allow you to select the component(s) you want to build and specify
settings that control the behavior of the project. After you create
a project, you can use the Project painter to modify your project
How to deploy the component
To deploy a component to Jaguar, open the project created
by the wizard and select Design>Build Project.
What happens when you deploy to Jaguar
When you deploy components to Jaguar, the component generator
performs these operations:
- Generates CORBA
IDL that describes the nonvisual objects you selected for deployment.
The IDL is in turn used to build stubs and skeletons. The names
of the IDL file, the stubs, and the skeletons are based upon the
name of the object.
The component generator stores the new IDL in the Repository subdirectory
of the Jaguar installation directory.
- Generates a PROPS file that describes the properties
of the Jaguar component.
The PROPS file is stored in the following subdirectory of
the Jaguar installation directory:PowerBuilder1<b>RepositoryComponent</b><i>package-name</i>
- Generates one or more PBD files for the deployed
The PBD files are stored in the following subdirectory of
the Jaguar installation directory:PowerBuilder1<b>RepositoryComponent</b><i>package</i><b></b><i>component</i><b>C</b><i>cookie</i>
where cookie represents the number for
this generation of the build. If the library name is not qualified
(no path is specified), the component generator prepends a dollar
sign ($) to the name. By default, Jaguar uses the most
recent version of the component.
