We are a brandnew webMethods user starting out with version 8 and I am getting very very frustrated with this product.
All of the detailed tutorials (that I can find) are written around 7.1 and I can find very little with step by step instructions on how to create portlet pages, but for my question.
Help document (for Designer) talks about creating a data provider within the MWS Admin tab, so that you can actually deploy the portlets. I have created one for our process models running on integration server, but how do I create this for a MWS server? It never prompts me for a userid or password but I always get the window in the attached file.
Thank for any help you can provide. Doc1.doc (49.5 KB)
You need to configure a My webMethods Server Runtime, this is as well described on page 41. for quick guide:
1- Open Designer.
2- Switch to UI Development perspective.
3- Select “Servers” view.
4- Right click on the view and select “New → Server”
5- Select “My webmethods Server (Remote)” and ensure you set “server hostname” properly.
6- Click next and ensure ports are correct.
7- Click on next and assign your Porlet project.
When you click now on Run project on server, it will prompt you for user/pass
If you already had a server defined, click on “stop” . Right click on server and select “Add/remove prjects”, add your project and then click the start icon. It should prompt you for user/pass.
Most of the tutorials you find for 7.1 will be valid for 8.0.
Thanks for the reply. You are correct and I have defined the server in the servers tab and I am able to stop and start the server, add packages to be deployed and everything works fine until I attempt to publish or run on server. I then get a message box with the following
‘Publishing to My webMethods Server (Remote)…’ has encountered a problem.
