Packaging the Adapter
Once all the required code is developed, it is time to package them into a RAR artifact, that can be deployed into a Container. A RAR artifact is similar to a WAR. To put together a RAR file it really depends upon the build system you are using.
Eclipse: You can start out with building Java Connector project, it will produce the RAR file
Ant: If you are using "ant" build tool, there is "rar" build task available
Maven: If you are using maven, use <packaging> element value as "rar". Teiid uses maven, you can look at any of the "connector" projects for sample "pom.xml" file. See
Build Environmentfor an example of a pom.xml file.
Make sure that the RAR file, under its "META-INF" directory has the "ra.xml" file. If you are using maven refer to http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-rar-plugin/. In the root of the RAR file, you can embed the JAR file containing your connector code and any dependent library JAR files.
