Servoy installer filtering what to install in the server

Postby jcarlos » Thu May 13, 2010 11:17 pm

Just a modest suggestion for the Servoyans:

When installing only Servoy Server, the installer should remove all .jar files that are not needed by the server –or used to deploy Servoy thin and web clients.

Files used by the developer (such as the java swing beans) shouldn’t be downloaded in the server when installing only the server - when the developer is unmarked.

This is just a suggestion. It may not be possible –for reasons that I don’t know

Actually swing-beans CAN be used by your applications, and the installer will not know that in advance, so it needs to be deployed on the server.
Almost everything under application_server is part of the server stack (beans, database, drivers, lafs, lib, plugins, server, service, sybase_db, terracotta).

You can clean up yourself after install, for example if you use another DB than Sybase as your repository you can get rid of database and sybase_db.
If you don't use clustering you can forget terracotta.
You can safely get rid of docs and solutions.
You can remove some of the drivers jars you don't use in drivers.
And it's up to you, if you don't use some beans or plugin, to get rid of them if you want to reduce the download weight for your clients.

Got it! Thanks for the explanation.

Servoyans: forget about the above suggestion.

Issue closed.
