Command Reference


Build a type library.

Generates a library jar file from the types found in the -basedir/modules, saving the jar file into the -targetdir. The file created is named "library-${}.jar".

The builddir should contain types like this:

  • ${opts.basedir}/modules/
    • Type1/
      • type.xml
      • ...
    • Type2/
      • type.xml
      • ...

If the -upload flag is specified, the resulting library jar file will be uploaded to the server repository via the load-library command.

static: This command can be run outside of an object context.


ctl -m ProjectBuilder -c build-library [-archive <seed>] [-basedir <>] [-createjar <true>] [-name <>] [-targetdir <>] [-upload] [-version <1>]


Option Description Type Default
archive archive type to build. (seed or extension)

There are two kinds of library archives.

  • A "seed" archive can be uploaded to a ControlTier server and used to bootstrap projects in Workbench. (seed is default)
  • An "extension" archive can be installed as a CTL extension. Extensions are useful for enhancing the CTL installation with new modules, executables and supporting Jar files (which may include Ant tasks and types).
