4 Scripted Configuration of Oracle Business Transaction Management

As stated earlier in this document, when you configure Business Transaction Management for the first time, we recommend that you use the browser-based Configuration Wizard. For users who want to execute various aspects of the configuration from the command line, a Command Line Interface (CLI) is provided.

The CLI provides command-line equivalents to many configuration tasks. Relevant to this document, which describes configuration of Business Transaction Management using the browser-based configuration wizard, are the configure and registerContainer commands. Both of these commands are part of the CLI and provide an alternative to the wizard approach to configuration.

Complete documentation for the configure and registerContainer commands, as well as the entire CLI, can be found in the Business Transaction Management online help. In the Table of Contents, navigate to Administering and configuring AMS, and then the sub-topic Command line utilities/Command line interface.

4.1 Invoking the CLI

The CLI executable is located in the install_dir/tools directory—ap.bat for Windows and ap.sh for Unix-like systems.

Command syntax:

ap configure -i inputFile -s sphereUrl -l username:password 

4.2 The Configure Command

The configure command takes an XML configuration file as an argument. This configuration file specifies all the setup information for Business Transaction Management, including database type and connection information, deployment credentials, and so on.

4.3 The registerContainer Command

The registerContainer command takes an XML configuration file as an argument. This configuration file specifies all the setup information for the application server, including agent message log database type and connection information, deployment credentials, and so on.
