Uploading CEMLI Files as a .zip File with Manifest

Learn how to add the .zip file containing your CEMLI files to Packager, and upload this .zip file with manifest to the Oracle Automated CEMLI Execution repository.

To create the CEMLI files .zip file:

  1. Create the directory structure on your local machine. For example:

  2. At the top level directory, zip all files. For example, zip the files in step 1 at the /applmgr/CEMLI/modules/files directory, producing files.zip.

  3. Create the manifest file manually using a standard text editor. You will need to copy the file contents into the native Packager manifest editor.

    When creating the manifest file, include the file name, the module, the description, the file type, the deployment path (if required), and the language.

    The manifest file name follows the relative path from the top level directory beneath the files directory.

    For example, for XBOATTRS.fmb, the file name is /forms/US/XBOATTRS.fmb.

    This sample manifest file shows the typical format:

    /forms/US/AKDATTRS.fmb,sxbo,US_AKDATTRS form,fmb,null,US
    /reports/US/ABMACTD.rdf,sxbo,US_ABMACTF report,rdf,null,US
    /sql/getPONumber.sql,sxbo,PO number access sql,pkb,null, US
    /sql/vendor_supplier_MAT.sql,sxbo,vendor supplier relation,pkb,null,US

    Alternatively, you can paste the manifest directly into Packager using the Manifest tab. You can also modify the manifest on the Manifest or Editor tabs. See unresolvable-reference.html.
