CloverETL code deployment

Hi All,
I am new to cloverETL. I have worked in SSIS before. I have a confusion about code deployment in cloverETL from dev environment to other environments like QA or Production. Is it Export/Import that does the deployment? Any document or any link to any example which describes the deployment process thoroughly? As SSIS has its own way for deployment.

Hoping for an early reply.

Regards,
Snigdha

Dear Snigdha,

Yes, export from Designer is one possibility. Also, because our projects/sandboxes are plain directories you can use VCS systems like git, cvs, svn, ... for deploy.

Also please see viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6750

export/import approach is generally not very good. It is not very common to use exported project as-is with no customization) in enterprise environments

There are many problems to solve:
- environment specific artifacts (such as specific urls, credentials, ssh keys, ...)
- import/update/delete of schedules/services
- different jndi context format on tomcat (dev) and for example weblogic (other environments)

In my case shell script only installation is a must - use of designer is forbidden on some envs, server console is forbidden during installation.

I wrote my own installer shell script suite to call multiple methods of simple http api and web-dav using curl. Some task such as backup existing sandbox before push changes use web service api

There are many features missing in server api. I miss CRUD methods for schedules, launch services, users, ...
