TIBant™ v18 Released

Automate My Way To Production TIBant v18 has been released and now provides support for no-outage deployments.

Features Implemented:

  • No Outage Deployments

    The `deploy` target will do a rolling restart of impacted BW instances, using AppStatusCheck to make sure each instance is running before moving onto the next. This means that in HA scenarios, there will be no outage.

  • Add Support for AppStatusCheck

    An `appStatusCheck` task will set ant properties with the current application statuses, using AppStatusCheck under the covers. An `instanceStatusCheck` task will do the same for a particular instance and can be used as a condition to check for a particular status.

TIBant is the premier build automation framework for TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™ and allows you to free up your time so that you can spend more energy and development dollars on delivering crucial integration and services and less time on the basics of writing the scripts necessary to get your code built and into production.

Features Implemented:

  • Support Checkpoint Repository Source for `configure-ear`

    The `configure-ear` now supports selection of a checkpoint repository and table prefixes.

    The checkpoint repository and table prefix are set the following deployment properties.

    #par#-checkpoints-selected=<<resourcre name>>
    #par#-checkpoints-tablePrefix=<<database table prefix>>

  • Add support for starting the engine in the same JVM as Ant

    Previously, running BW engines used the `bwengine` to start the engine and TIBCO Hawk to stop the engine it. This could result in situations where it was not possible to stop the engine, due to Hawk not being correctly configured or if Hawk was not running.

    To overcome this, TIBant now provides additional macros for starting and stopping a BW engine within the same JVM as the Ant script, which ensures that the engine will stop when the Ant script completes.

  • Automatic TIBCO Path Detection

    Previously the paths for the various TIBCO products had to be set manually via Ant properties. TIBant will now try to determine the TIBCO product paths automatically, if the TIBCO product path properties have not been set.
