Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Installation and Configuration Guide

Running the ssopatch Utility

To run the ssopatch utility, follow this usage:

ssopatch --help|-? [--locale|-l]

ssopatch --war-file|-o [--manifest|-m] [--locale|-l]

ssopatch --war-file|-o 

where the options are:




Specifies a path to a WAR file (such as opensso.war) that has previously been deployed.


Specifies the path to the manifest file you want to create. The manifest file will be generated from the WAR file indicated by --war-file|-o, if this option is provided.


Specifies a path to a WAR file to compare against the WAR file indicated by --war-file|-o.


Specifies a path to the staging area where the files from an OpenSSO Enterprise WAR will be written. 


Specifies the locale to be used. If this option is not specified, ssopatch uses the default system locale.


Overrides revision checking for the two WAR files. Revision checking determines the versions of the WAR files and continues only if the versions are compatible. This option allows you to override this check. The fefault is false (revision checking is performed). 


Overwrites the files in the existing staging area. The default is false (files are not overwritten).
