Considerations for Packaging a Web Application

Last Modified: November 16, 2020

Web applications have unique deployment factors and dependencies you need to know before configuring a package or package installer.

You can package web applications using the same steps as non-web applications. However, you must deploy web applications to a web server. After you add your web application to the package, LabVIEW NXG Web Module automatically adds NI Web Server to the dependencies list. The NI Web Server location is the default root directory for your web application.

You can view this file path by opening SystemDesigner in your web application project and selecting Web Server on the diagram. The file path appears in the configuration pane on the right under NI Web Server.

Web Module automatically adds /<web application name> to the end of the file path when you add a component to the package document in one of the following ways.
  • Right-click the component in the project tree and choose Create Package/Installer with item.
  • Open a distribution document and choose Add Files....

For web applications that use SystemLink APIs, such as Tags and Messages, you must add those dependencies to the package manually.
