Using Ant To Deploy EAR To OC4J

I just learn how to use Ant build to deploy ejb application into OC4J Version in Eclipse IDE. First need to add the ant-oracle.jar and ant-oracle-classes.jar file into Eclipse Ant. Follow steps listed below to complete the configuration.

  1. Select Windows->Preferences->Ant-Runtime->Classpath->Ant Home Entries.

  2. Click on the Add External Jar button.

  3. The ant-oracle.jar was located at $ORACLE_HOME\ant\lib

  4. The ant-oracle-classes.jar was located at $ORACLE_HOME\j2ee\ant-tasks\ant-oracle-classes.jar

Add the following target into your build file.

<target name="deploy-oc4j" depends="undeploy-oc4j">
<oracle:deploy deployerUri="${deployer.uri}"
userid="${oc4j.admin.user}" password="${oc4j.admin.password}"


deployer.uri = deployer:oc4j:localhost:23791
You can change the localhost to the oc4j server you want to deploy and the port 23791 is the default port, you can change according to your setting.
