Since I am installing in a 64 bit Windows VM, I use the 64 bit launch pad
IBM Integration Designer for IBM Business Monitor
Windows only, this installation configuration includes IBM Business
Monitor, the Monitor Model editor (a feature in IBM Integration
Designer), and a IBM Business Monitor test environment. The following
packages are selected for installation:
- WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment
- Business Monitor
- IBM Cognos
- DB2 Express
- Integration Designer
default stand-alone profile for Business Monitor is selected on the
Features page. This profile enables you to begin using the test
IBM Integration Designer for WebSphere DataPower
installation configuration works directly with the WebSphere DataPower
Appliance, and does not include a test environment. Only the Integration
Designer package is selected for installation.
IBM Integration Designer
installation configuration does not include a test environment. Only
the Integration Designer package is selected for installation.
I chose the option to install the Process Server Test Environment and start working with the IBM Process Center first, all this check box does is auto prompt to connect to an existing Process Center. This is covered in another separate article.
Click "install Selected" and the IBM installation manager will start.
As the IIM (IBM Installation manager) loads it will validate the local install repository.
As you can see above the installer has already pre-selected the individual component. We are installing WAS 188.8.131.52 ND, IID, IBM Process Server Advanced (Both Process Server and ESB) DB2 Express to fulfill a complete developer environment.
You will see the repository already contains several fix packs.
Read and Accept License
I choose to install in was8nd as it is not a protected folder.
Click Next and the wizard will prompt for some profile & DB/2 settings
We use profile settings as administrative security will be turned on for this profile. Click Next
Review the installation summary and click Install
At this point the IIM is asking you to create a Process Center, we do this using a Process Center profile. But since I want to verify that the process server profile has installed let's look at that first. Later we will create the Process Center server (Process Center Profile).
When the install is completed, select none as seen below. We do not need to create a profile because we are going to use the WTE (WebSphere Test Environment) from within IBM Integration Designer.
Click finish to and close the Launchpad installer.
Since I have installed on Windows, there is a new entry in the IBM program group
OR: C:\IBM\IntegrationDesigner\v8.0\wid.exe -product com.ibm.wbit.feature.ide
Once the IID is started, it will prompt for a location for the workspace.
I have chosen: C:\workspaces\iid80\
When we start-up click cancel as we do not yet now the URL of the process center server as we have not yet created that profile. We will do so later on.
Below is the default Business Integration perspective
If we click the server's view as seen below and use a right-mouse click we can find out the profile that was created by the installer.
We can see that the Process Center is installed in a profile called qbpmaps
To start eh process server we can type
Or use the right-mouse stat option
To find your admin console port: look for the stanza that contains WC_adminhost
|<specialEndpoints xmi:id="NamedEndPoint_1183121908098" endPointName="WC_adminhost">|
<endPoint xmi:id="EndPoint_1183121908098" host="*" port="9060"/>
Note we will also see that we are using port 9060, so the URL is:
We need to create a Process Center Server. We cannot do this with the same media that was used to install IID. You see Process Server Center comes with the full version of IBM BPM and is designed to be an actual server. You would not have a local dev IDE and a local Process Center on the same machine. Reason is resources locally and what is the point. A Process center is supposed to be shared.
Search my site for the article on how to create a Process Center.
Once the Process Center server is available we can switch to the Process Center perspective and connect.
