Using the Server Deployment Console
The Corticon Deployment Console provides a graphical interface to help you package Decision Services for deployment. This packaging can also be achieved with the compile corticonManagement command line utility. The Deployment Console does not actually deploy Decision Services, it just makes them ready to deploy.
The Deployment Console has two functions:
*Create Deployment Descriptor (.cdd) files, the XML documents that instruct Corticon Server which Ruleflows and Decision Services to load, and how to configure appropriate parameters and settings for each.
*Create XML service contract documents, the files used for Ruleflow integration. These are discussed in topics at Integrating Corticon Decision Services.
You might want to use the brms.properties setting that determines the path to an existing directory that will be used exclusively by Deployment Console to pre-compile Ruleflow files into .eds files. It is important that you use forward slashes as path separator. Example: c:/Users/me/CcDeploymentSandbox
Default value is %CORTICON_WORK_DIR%/System/CcDeploymentSandbox
com.corticon.ccdeployment.sandboxDir=%CORTICON_WORK_DIR%/%CORTICON_SETTING%/CcDeploymentSandbox
To start the Corticon Deployment Console:
*Java Server: On the Windows Start menu, choose Programs > Progress > Corticon n.n > Corticon Deployment Console.
*.NET Server: On the Windows Start menu, choose Programs > Progress > Corticon n.n > Corticon .NET Deployment Console.
Note: For Linux installations, the Deployment Console is included in the server archive zip file. See its readme for information on how to run it.
