Subject Re: Best way to copy artifacts & features from one ACE server to another

Hello Philipp,

I overlooked this question completely, sorry for that!

We have a testing and production server. Both run all-in-one ACE. The

If testing was successful for a certain build on the test server, I 
would like to transfer that one release to the prod server. That is: 
copy the artifacts to the other OBR and recreate the features and 
What's the best way of doing this automatically?
There are two ways to approach this:

1) Let’s assume that the artifacts that go into your testing server come from some archive
that is produced by your continuous build. If that is the case then one approach would be
to somehow hang on to that and use it to feed the same data into your production server (if
it passes all tests).

2) The other approach is to HTTP GET a specific version of the software from the testing server.
I’m assuming it has a target that contains all the artifacts for testing. Effectively, you’re
doing the same thing that a management agent would do. You end up with a deployment package
containing all the artifacts. That package even contains some metadata about the features
and distributions that were associated with the artifacts, so if you take it as a starting
point you should be able to reconstruct all artifacts, features and distributions on your
production server.

I think we might even have some code already in ACE to help you script #2, but I’m not 100%

Greetings, Marcel
