Error description

  • Installing BIRT application on WAS as part of the Report
    Launcher setup produces a plugin  configuration file that misses
    the previously existing ClearCase related entries (ccrc/CTE)
    
    
    Steps to reproduce or if has been reproduced on VM image, link
    to image
    
    1. Start with a CQ 8.0.1.x cqweb installation, including the
    Report launcher component. Note that the file plugin.cfg.xml
    includes the appropriate entries to access the cqweb
    application:
    
    ...jsessionid" Name="/cqweb/*"/>...
    
    2. Install the CCRC WAN Server component and its required
    components (Local Views,...,). Note that now new plugin.cfg.xml
    includes both the cqweb and CTE relevant entries (
    
    ...jsessionid" Name="/ccrc/*"/>...
    
    3. Now proceed to setup report launcher. As part of this setup
    you need to install the BIRT web package on the cqweb profile as
    documented in:
    
    http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/cqhelp/v8r0m0/topic/com.ibm.ra
    tional.clearquest.reporting.doc/topics/t_rpt_rl4birt_instal_on_W
    AS.htm
    
    After completing this, the new  plugin.cfg.xml includes
    correctly the entry to route requests related to the BIRt
    application jsut installed:
    
    ...jsessionid" Name="/birt/*"/>...
    
    but it misses the ccrc entry. To be able to restore normal
    access to CTE, the adimistrator must manually edit the file in
    order to set all the necessary entries.
    
    
    
    The documentation should be updated explaining what additional
    steps are needed if there also have other rational applications
    (typically ccrc) hosted in other WAS profiles in the same
    server.

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.17 and 8.0.1.10.
    Technote #196891 has been created explaining the additional
    steps needed after configuring BIRT runtime with ClearQuest
    Report Launcher if there are other Rational applications hosted
    in other WAS profiles.
