The Export Portlet WAR
command creates a new web archive for your portlet.
You typically export a WAR when you make changes to your model or profile sets, for example, when you add a builder. Normally you do not need to re-export aWAR unless you make changes that modify the web.xml
file. If you make changes that do not modify the web.xml
file, you can copy the changed files to the published location. The Export Portlet WAR
accomplishes this task. You can automate this feature by setting the Automatically Synchronize Portlet WAR
option on the WebSphere Portlet Factory Project Properties
