Pinned topic Silent Installation of Migration Toolkit 2.1 into RAD 7.5.x

‏2011-04-25T18:13:24Z |
Hi All.

I'm working to setup an install of the Migration Toolkit 2.1 into RAD 7.5.x and ultimately RAD 8.0.x. In our enterprise setting I don't have the option to perform the install via the GUI.

How can this be installed using the command line?

I've typically seen plugins come with a site.xml which makes it very friendly to install silenty using the Eclipse P2 installer. In this case there are only two files to reference outside of the features and plugins folders: artifact.jar and contents.jar.

Can anyone help?

Regards,
Bryan

    Hi Brian,

    Here is what we used to install silently:

    C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.app.application -metadataRepository jar:file:C:/<amtDownloadDir>/Application_Migration_Tool_WebSphere_Version_to_Version_v2.1.0.zip!/ -artifactRepository jar:file:C:/<amtDownloadDir>/Application_Migration_Tool_WebSphere_Version_to_Version_v2.1.0.zip!/ -installIU com.ibm.ws.appconversion_feature.was2was.feature.group -nosplash

    We tested this on Rational Application Developer 7.5, Eclipse 3.6, and Eclipse 3.4.2

    The corresponding uninstall command is:

    C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.app.application -uninstallIU com.ibm.ws.appconversion_feature.was2was.feature.group -nosplash

    Let us know how this works for you.

    Cindy

      Hi Cindy,

      This has been very helpful. We have successfully installed and uninstalled silently using the information that you provided.

      We used the following for installation:
      "C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe" -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.app.application -metadataRepository jar:file:C:/WASMigr_TMP/AppMigr_Tool_WS_V_to_V_v2.1.0.zip!/ -artifactRepository jar:file:C:/WASMigr_TMP/AppMigr_Tool_WS_V_to_V_v2.1.0.zip!/ -installIU com.ibm.ws.appconversion_feature.common.feature.group -nosplash

      "C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe" -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.app.application -metadataRepository jar:file:C:/WASMigr_TMP/AppMigr_Tool_WS_V_to_V_v2.1.0.zip!/ -artifactRepository jar:file:C:/WASMigr_TMP/AppMigr_Tool_WS_V_to_V_v2.1.0.zip!/ -installIU com.ibm.ws.appconversion_feature.was2was.feature.group -nosplash
      And the following for uninstall:
      "C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe" -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.app.application -uninstallIU com.ibm.ws.appconversion_feature.was2was.feature.group -nosplash

      "C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe" -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.app.application -uninstallIU com.ibm.ws.appconversion_feature.common.feature.group -nosplash

      Regards,
      Bryan
