    The thread that NJ has linked to is discussing running the GEL (outside of the process) from the command line (i.e. you would copy the GEL script from the process to somewhere else and run it).

     

    If you really need to run the process itself, from outside of the application, you can do this over the application's web-services ; by calling the InvokeAction web-service.

    Search in this community for "InvokeAction" and you will find threads discussing it.

     

    (I don't have a quick-guide to this at all)

    Also I recall that there was a presentation (PP501LN) at CAWorld a few years ago that discussed this ; the presentation material is uploaded to the community here ;

    HI,

     

    I am also looking for something similar.

     

    1. I have jdk 7 at path  D:\Java\jdk1.7.0_79

    2. XOG at path C:\CA\Clarity\CA Clarity PPM XOG

     

    3. I am putting a basic script test.xml inside bin folder

     

    <gel:script xmlns:core="jelly:core"

      xmlns:gel="jelly:com.niku.union.gel.GELTagLibrary">

       

          <gel:out>Hello World</gel:out>

       

    </gel:script>

     

    4. JAVA_HOME is set as D:\Java\jdk1.7.0_79

     

    but it is throwing error

    The "Error unmarshalling config file: properties.xml" is to do with the setup of the environment that you are running XOG from.

     

    ( How to setup the environment is covered in one of the documents in the Gel.zip file attached to the FAQ thread ; CA Clarity General Discussion - FAQs  )

    Hi,

     

    I read the document; set JAVA_HOME as suggested. I am trying to run simple hello world program (as mentioned in doc); but still getting the same error. Why properties.xml coming into picture, its a simple program?



  • 15.  Re: How to call process using GEL script from command prompt?

    Posted 07-27-2015 05:29 AM

    What I was referring to is that you must have a copy of properties.xml in a path in your local filesystem in order to run GEL "locally" (i.e. outside of the Clarity environment).

     

    I think the detail is in the "Why Hello World is Useful" document?

    Could you please share the link or doc "Why Hello World is Useful"

    Hi All,

     

    I have a question if somebody ever met with situation that this error "Error unmarshalling config file: properties.xml"

    was NOT solved with all staff mentioned in Gel.zip file (guides) or threads on this forum. Because I've tried everything (see notes) and still getting this error.

     

    I have to say that some scripts I could run (hello world, read from database, etc.) but I'm trying to execute one script when parsing file and that's the problem.

    Script itself should be OK because my colleague is running it well.

     

    Notes: Clarity is ver 13.3.0.286, xogclient downloaded from Clarity as usual

               Java on my machine installed is ver 1.8.0

               Properties.xml file located in as recommended

              Java_Home, Path and other variables set correctly (using also another programs)

     

    In case of interest I've attached the script. Thanks

    Thanks

    Hi Navzjoshi,

     

    Yes of course, as I've mentioned above. Those ideas didn't help me.

    Hi All,

     

    As I just knew from this thread https://communities.ca.com/message/241696144#241696144

    It should be some bug for xogclient ver. 13.3. When I've just downloaded Xogclient ver 13.1, it's working perfectly.
