Updating Your Production Server After Recent MRCCH

 

Situation: You are developing your mrc applications on your AS400 but serve them from a different physical Windows server. You are doing this to separate production and development environments. Plus, you realize that running applications on a Windows server will be much more efficient and quicker to your end user, especially for graphing and PDF creation.

The Problem: You have recently taken an MRCCH but have no idea how to incorporate those changes to your Windows server.

The Solution: Below is a short list of what you need to do to ensure all necessary updates are carried out to your Windows (production) server.

  1. Download and apply MRCCH to AS400.
  2. Stop Tomcat on your production server.
  3. Copy and transfer the contents of the /mrcjava/WEB-INF/lib directory to your Windows directory (mrcjava\WEB-INF\lib). This accomplishes transferring the newly updated servlet logic for your production instance.
  4. Copy and transfer the contents of the /mrcjava/mrcclasses directory to your Windows directory (mrcjava\mrcclasses). This accomplishes transferring any newly updated Javascript or other files that control the look of your application.
  5. Start Tomcat on your production server.
