Hacking Infor Grid application development (part 5)

Here is the fifth part in the series Hacking Infor Grid application development. This time I will show you how to deploy a web application archive, WAR file. It is trivial and quick as the Infor Grid automatically deploys it.

Create the archive

Simply ZIP the contents of the web application into a WAR file:

File & folder structure

Move the WAR file into the webapps folder of the Grid application, and delete the rest of the webapps content (WEB-INF, JSP, etc.) so that there is only the WAR file left:

\---webapps

GitHub

I updated the GitHub repository with a Tag for part5.

Petition

Remember to join the campaign in asking Infor Product Development to release their Grid Development Tools and tutorials and to make their source code available so we can learn how to make good Grid applications.

Meanwhile, remember this is a hack with the intention to learn and progress.
