COSMOS SDK Installation

Revision as of 12:50, 29 August 2008 by Sleeloy.ca.ibm.com (Talk | contribs) (Download COSMOS Demo and Prerequisites)

This page provides instructions on how to install and run the COSMOS demo for i12.

Objective of the SDK

The COSMOS SDK provides the eclipse-based tooling to construct a Management Data Repository (MDR).


Download COSMOS Demo and Prerequisites

This section provides instructions for installing and running the demo program that is provided in the COSMOS i12 build.

  1. Install Tomcat 5.5.26. The directory where the Tomcat server is installed will be referred to as the <tomcat_install_dir> in this document.
  2. From the COSMOS download page, click on the link of the latest candidate build for i13. Download the zip file under the "COSMOS SDK" section.
  3. Download the prerequisites for the SDK as specified on the download page (i.e.. Dojo, tomcat, axis2, wtp, eclipse, emf, xsd, and gef)
  4. Unzip Eclipse SDK to a directory along with wtp, emf, xsd, gef and the COSMOS SDK.
  5. Unzip Tomcat to a separate directory.
  6. Unzip Dojo to a separate directory.

Installing COSMOS Web applications and Web Services

COSMOS comes with a program that helps install and configure the web applications and web services required for the demonstration. The install program is located at <cosmos-demo>\bin. Run configDemo.bat or configDemo.sh to start the install program on Windows and Linux respectively. The install program assumes your <cosmos-demo> directory and the tomcat installation are on the same host.

The configDemo program accepts 5 parameters. They are:

  1. tomcatDir: Apache Tomcat install directory <tomcat_install_dir>
  2. cosmosDir: COSMOS Demo install directory <cosmos-demo>
  3. birt: path to BIRT Runtime zip file (download from step 4 above)
  4. dojo: path to dojo zip file (download from step 5 above)
  5. axis2war: (optional) Path to the axis2.war file (downloaded from step 3 above)

You will see something like the following in a successful execution of the config program.
