Alfresco community deployment script

Automate build and deployment of Alfresco

Hi Readers,

I am working on Alfresco community development & customization for some time and found out deployment process quite time taking and long.

Customizing alfresco and re-deployment of your changes requires these steps to proceed

  • stop alfresco
  • generate AMPs from source
  • copy paste AMPs from source to running Alfresco instance.
  • apply AMPs
  • start alfresco


So to reduce the manual copy paste of AMP's (Alfresco Module Package) and make this process automated i have created a shell script which might be useful to you as well.

Shell script to automate build & deployment of Alfresco is



ALFRESCO_HOME="/home/kunal/alfresco-5.0.d-xcms"
SOURCE_HOME="/home/kunal/Projects/xseed/xcms"

cd $ALFRESCO_HOME

echo
echo
echo "//************* Stopping Alfresco ***************//";
echo
echo

sh alfresco.sh stop

echo
echo
echo "//************* Building AMPs ***************//";
echo
echo


cd $SOURCE_HOME/xcms-alfresco/

mvn clean install

sudo cp target/xcms-alfresco.amp $ALFRESCO_HOME/amps


cd $SOURCE_HOME/xcms-share/

mvn clean install

sudo cp target/xcms-share.amp $ALFRESCO_HOME/amps_share

cd $ALFRESCO_HOME/bin

echo
echo
echo "//************* Deploying AMPs ***************//";
echo
echo


sh apply_amps.sh -force

cd ..

echo
echo
echo "//************* Starting Alfresco ***************//";
echo
echo


sh alfresco.sh start

tail -f tomcat/logs/catalina.out

You need to set
 ALFRESCO_HOME
and
 SOURCE_HOME
as per your system.
