  • You need to create components in Component Designer and then import them into the database using Component Database Manager:

  • There is a tool called XPECMD.WSF that can be used to script the process to import components. The online help can tell you more about the tool.

  • Hi Sean,

    I think what ever tool you have mentioned is for XPE. But currently using WES. Do we have any other tools similar to XPECMD.WSF?
