About this plugin

This plugin allows to invoke the wsadmin command of IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) 6.0/6.1/7.0 as a build step. It can be used for example to deploy a freshly built application (self-promo: using the RAD Builder Plugin).

This plugin supports:

User guide

Before adding a WAS build step to a job, the WAS Builder plugin must be configured as follow:

Once at least one server is defined, it's possible to add some "IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.x/7.x" build steps to your jobs (cf. screenshot below). Most of wsadmin options can be controlled through the GUI. Take a look at the inline help (the little question marks located on the right of each field) to know more about each feature.

The Run if field doesn't correspond to a wsadmin option. It can be used to dynamically enable/disable a build step for a particular run: If Run if is defined (let's say with the STOP_SERVER value) for a build step, then the build step will be run if and only if:

When defining a build step for WAS 6.0, be sure to refer to the inline help to know if you can use it: Some options (job ID, trace file, etc.) are available only for WAS 6.1 or greater.
