3. Deploying a dynamic WEBDEV site
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
The different types of deployment
WEBDEV offers three methods for deploying a dynamic site (Session site or AWP):
  • deployment by physical media (CD-ROM, etc.) of the WEBDEV site, with creation of a setup version supplied on CD-ROM to the hosting company.
    Note: a WEBDEV application server can be included in the setup supplied by physical media.
  • remote deployment directly from the development computer (by file transfer via Internet in HTTP mode).
    Note: It is also possible to perform a deployment by file transmission in FTP mode. In this case, the hosting company must configure an FTP server.
  • remote deployment from a management computer (file transfer through Internet, FTP)
    Note: It is also possible to perform this deployment by file transmission in FTP mode. In this case, an FTP server must be configured on the Web server.
Choosing a deployment method
The choice of deployment method mainly depends on the constraints imposed by the hosting company and on the location of deployment server (remote or local).
The setup via physical media is recommended if the Web server can be easily accessed (the Web server and the development team are located in the same premises, for example).
The remote setup (by HTTP) from the development computer is recommended if the deployment computer cannot be easily accessed. Before performing a remote setup, the hosting company must configure the WEBDEV account manager.
The remote setup (by HTTP) from a management computer is recommended if the characteristics of the server are not known by the developer when creating the setup program. In this case, the setup program is called a "Package".
If a site is intended for several clients, you have the ability to create a single package and to distribute it to all the relevant clients.
The server settings (address, etc.) are specified only when the package is run on the management computer.
Deployment via physical media: necessary information
When deploying by physical media, the information regarding the setup and the site setting is supplied both in the wizard for setup creation and in the setup wizard.
When preparing the setup, you must supply:
  • the setup directory,
  • the files to install,
  • the directory for generating the setup.
During the setup, you must supply:
  • the directory of data files,
  • the directory of site files.
After setup, the characteristics of the site (connection time-out, number of connections, etc.) must be configured in the WEBDEV administrator (deployment version).
Deployment by HTTP directly from the development computer: necessary information
No setup can be run without this information. Ask the provider to get this information.
Before performing an HTTP deployment directly from the development computer, the host company must communicate the following information to the developer:
  • Name of Web server where the setup will be performed (or its IP address).
  • User name and associated password defined in the WEBDEV account manager.
  • The OS account used to run WEBDEV sites (it is associated with the WEBDEV account in the account manager).
When deploying by HTTP, the developer must specify in the wizard:
  • the information provided by the hosting company,
  • the files to install,
  • the name of sub-directory of data files,
  • the different parameters for connecting to the site.
Notes:
  • A delayed setup can be performed at the specified date and time.
  • The setup and the update by HTTP are secured by password and data encryption.
Deployment by HTTP directly from a management computer: necessary information
When creating the setup program, no specific information is required.
When running the setup program of the site (from a management computer), the hosting company will have to specify:
  • Name of Web server where the setup will be performed (or its IP address).
  • User name and associated password defined in the WEBDEV account manager.
  • The OS account used to run WEBDEV sites (it is associated with the WEBDEV account in the account manager).
Notes:
  • A delayed setup can be performed at the specified date and time.
  • The setup and the update by HTTP are secured by password and data encryption.
