Ability to issue a common build that includes all extensions

In the on-prem world, we would build custom extensions and issue smcfs build. In the cloud world, we are required to create UI extension jars (for call center, and other apps) and drop the respective jar files under respective application WEB-INF locations before building extensions.jar


This is causing us issues in having to create multiple jars and also remove dependencies between java utilities.


Ideally we should be able to issue command to build extensions.jar and the system automatically builds UI extensions and places them in the respective WEB-INF.

    Hi, Thanks for creating this idea.

    Could you please add more details to this ? I have added a few questions to gather more details about the issue.


    1. How is your source control directory structure set up? The OMoC development guide suggests a directory structure here to avoid conflicts between various components : https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGTJF/developing/t_omc_customize_progenv_impext.html

    2. What specific dependency jars are removed during build process? Could you highlight the utilities that causes conflicts between various WAR modules

    3. is your build process set up as per best practices guideline : https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSGTJF/developing/c_omc_BestPracticesCustomExtns.html.

    Thanks
