Silently Install SOA QuickStart Revised by Martien van den Akker

Earlier I wrote a script to silently install the SOA QuickStart installer and wrote about it here.

Several customer projects further and iterations on the script further, I revised this script lately again. Because I’m leaving this customer in a week or three, and to help my successors to build up their development pc’s in a comfortable and standard way.

You may have noticed that over the years I’ve grown fond of scripting stuff, especially building up environments. At my current customer every developer installed the several IDE’s, test tooling and TortoiseSVN by hand. So every one has the tooling in another folder structure. Checked out the subversion repo’s by hand and therefor in another structure.

So, scripting things help in having the tooling in the same folder structure for every one. And that reduces the chances on problems and misconfigurations. Especially preventing the infamous phrase: ‘It works with me…’ when having problems. One of the revisions is to have nested if-else structures in the script, which makes it more readable then the conditional goto’s we were used to use in Windows .bat files.

Another important improvement was to have the install binaries in a separate fileserver-repository. This makes it possible to have the scripting and depending files in a Subversion repository. The script improved installSoaQS.bat is as follows: Read the complete article here.
