As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

When using Tomcat, aliases to the WebFOCUS web apps are created, for example, "ibi_apps" which points to Drive:\ibi\WebFOCUS77\webapps\webfocus. I can make changes to jsp files in this directory and see the changes immediately on refreshing the web browser.

Things don't appear to behave the same way in WebSphere - changes to JSP files are not seen by refreshing the web browser. I have no experience with WebSpehere, but I tried stopping/starting and that made no difference. Which seems to suggest that the web app is deployed as a war file - I would have to recreate the war file if I want to apply changes. Is this a correct assumption?

I'm not sure if I'm using the correct terminology...

WebSphere does deploy war files so any changes to files under the webfocus directory require you to recreate the war file and re-deploy it under websphere. I couldn't locate the commands to do the recreation of the war file but can reach out to people if you need help with that.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Thanks Chuck.

The documentation, "WebFOCUS and ReportCaster Installation and Configuration for Windows" (wf_win_7705install.pdf) tells us how to deploy a web app, but does not tell us how to create a war file. Even though this might be a non-WebFOCUS task, I believe it should be included in the documentation.

I completely disagree.

I suppose I should ask this question on a WebSphere forum?
