DTE025 – Install Version 1 Package


To install Version 1 of the II <your initials> Personnel System software.

To achieve this objective you must complete:

Step 1. Locate the Install File

Step 2. Install Version 1 of Personnel System

Step 3. Set Version 1 to Deployed


Deploying Your Own Applications

It is important to understand that these exercises will manage package definition, build and installation very differently to your own real applications. For example, your deployment package should always be built on a dedicated deployment copy of Visual LANSA. The objective is to ensure that deployment of every component is carefully controlled and the GUIDs generated during the build are preserved for building future releases of the application.

Testing on a clean deployment PC will ensure that all the required components have been identified and included in the installation.

For your own system, installation of Version 1 of your application could be to an end user desktop or to a file server or to a Terminal Server, depending on how you manage your client software.

For this exercise you will install to the partition you are using for training. The corresponding partition on the IBM i server must contain the Personnel files used by this application.

Your own deployment would normally initially be to a Test partition.
