Manual Build Steps

If wishing to make your own images, here are the steps used. If you have a Linux set of files to pull from, it takes less than 10 minutes to setup.

  1. Make a shell dir for the app that you want. Name the dir after app version (Wily_9.0.0.0)
    1. Mount the dmg and copy the .app file to /tmp (it's actually a directory). May also just be able to copy the existing .app file from /Applications
  2. Copy the old image (like 8.2.3) to the newly created directory
    1. We will delete the workstation subtree, but this will retain the package format.
  3. Update the Info.plist with new CFBundleVersion
    1. Keep the rest the same
  4. Go to Resources/WilyWorkstation. This is the actual workstation subtree.
    1. Remove everything
    2. Untar the Linux version of the workstation and run the installer on a Linux VM (there is no distro that is just the files only; all wrapped in .bin)
    3. Copy over the subtree to the new package
  5. Remove unnecessary stuff
    1. Remove jre/ UninstallerData/ install/ logs/ docs/
    2. Should be about 80 MB.
  6. Run to make sure it's working
    1. Shouldn't need any further customizations.
    2. Mac Java version is presently on Lion. (At a minimum, need and later.)
    3. Rename the folder to end in .app.
      1. Image name should have format like CA Wily Introscope Workstation
  7. Create a new image.
    1. Check size of dir with du.
    2. Make the image the right size. (Typically used 85mb, custom.)
    3. Format: Mac OS Extended
    4. Partition: Single partition (default)
    5. Image name should have format like CA_Wily_Introscope_Workstation-
  8. Mount the image, drag the app directory that you made into it
  9. Right-click, reveal in finder
  10. Create a readme telling to drag the app to apps folder:

    The <app_name.app>/Contents/MacOS/Introscope_workstation script:
#!/bin/sh DIR=`dirname "$0" | sed 's! !\\ !g'` DIR=$DIR/../Resources/WilyWorkstation cd "$DIR" #echo "*****" #echo "PWD = $PWD" exec ./Introscope_Workstation

Which in turn calls <app_name.app>/Contents/Resources/WilyWorkstation/IntroscopeWorkstation
