This plugin is an upgrade of the existing IIB9 plugin provided by Vadosity LLC (in particular Brett Shelley, who did an incredible job on both documenting and updating the previous incarnation, produced by SBB which is still available from github). The upgrade was developed in collaboration with our partners at Syntegrity Solutions. It is an open source project available from github
The upgrade was required for IIB Version 10, in particular to support both Shared Libraries and Linux users. However, whilst we were changing that we also added another option to simplify the usage to suit smaller projects or project teams. So the bulk of this page is dedicated to how to use this more simplified approach. For larger projects and/or project teams consult the main documentation, referenced below. Please note that the mavenize process, described here and by Vadosity, can be repeated a number of times so you are not forced to use one approach. You may find over time that you can vary the approach taken depending on your own project needs and collaborations. We aim to make this plugin as flexible as possible.
Whilst the original plugin was aimed at Windows users, we have now added support for Linux users (by incorporating Java exec by Alvin Alexander). Linux users are the focus for this page. Rest assured, Windows users are still supported but you will have to tailor the provided commands for your own usage and environment.
The aim of this process is to provide a simple build profile for workspaces that contains a mix of Applications, Shared Libraries, Libraries & Java projects. The IIB dependencies will remain within the workspace (which could, or rather should, be included in a source repository). The plugin will generate .bar files for all Application & Shared Library projects and provide an override for a provided set of target environments. It will also enable local integration testing and well as publishing of the .bar files.
This guide should get you up and running.
<dependency> <groupId>com.ibm.broker</groupId> <artifactId>IntegrationAPI</artifactId> <version>10.0.0.6</version> </dependency>
mvn -DiibDependenciesLocal=true -Doverwrite=true -Dmqsiprofile=/opt/ibm/iib-10.0.0.6/server/bin/mqsiprofile \ -DgroupId=<your.group.id> -Dversion=<your.version> -Ddistribution.repository=<your.local.repo> \ ch.sbb.maven.plugins:iib-maven-plugin:10.0-SNAPSHOT:mavenizeYou should see a pom.xml file in the workspace root and for each Application and Shared Library.
mvn compileYou can restrict which are built by the using the reactor list on the command line such as
mvn compile -pl myapp1,myshlib1The .bar files will appear in the target directory generated for each project.
mvn pre-integration-testThis will compile the bar files, again, apply override properties and deploy to the localdev environment. You can skip the compile as follows
mvn -DskipTo=pre-integration-test pre-integration-test
mvn deployYou can skip the other steps by using the command
mvn -DskipTo=deploy deployIf this was successful, you should see the .bar files in your configured repository as well as the .bar files with overrides applied for each configured target environment.
