Applications developed with Visual LANSA can be deployed to other servers including Windows, Linux and IBM i. The method of deploying LANSA objects will depend upon the server that will host the application.
IBM i Deployment
The standard method for deploying RDML and RDMLX Objects to another IBM i server is to check the objects in to the LANSA for iSeries Master Repository. LANSA for iSeries import/export utilities are used to deploy objects to other IBM i servers.
Alternately, RDML and RDMLX objects can be delivered directly to a remote IBM i using the Deliver To command.
If you deploy an RDMLX Visual LANSA application using LANSA SuperServer to an IBM i, please note:
- If you already use an automatic connection to an IBM i using X_RUN, you should replace DBID=AS400 with DBID=*ANY.
- If you have used the Built-In Function DEFINE_OS_400_SERVER, in your source code you should replace it with DEFINE_ANY_SERVER.
To deploy applications to other Windows workstations or servers, use the Visual LANSA Deployment Tool. For details, refer to Introduction to Deployment Tool in the
RDML and RDMLX objects can be delivered to a Linux runtime environment using the Deliver To command.
