Getting started with the IBM Internet of Things Continuous Engineering Solution

About the download: The Internet of Things (IoT) Continuous Engineering Solution helps teams implement Continuous Engineering principles as they specify, design, simulate, implement, verify, and validate complex products and the software that powers them. The solution offers an integrated set of capabilities that are used by leading companies around the world to predictably deliver competitive, high-quality products while meeting regulatory and compliance requirements.

The following functions and products are included in the IoT Continuous Engineering Solution:

Plan and prepare

For known issues with this release, see the release notes.

For supported platforms and requirements, see the system requirements.

To get started quickly with a small deployment by using the default topology and Apache Derby databases, go to the next step and install the server. Apache Derby deployments are limited to 10 users and do not support cross-domain reports.

Installing: If you plan to install the solution, see the installation information on the Deployment wiki.

Upgrading: If you plan to upgrade an existing deployment, see the Upgrading page.

Install the server and applications

To perform a web installation of the server, download the web installer for your platform (see the previous section), extract the .zip file, and start the launchpad (launchpad.exe or, depending on your platform). The server includes Apache Derby to support up to 10 users. To enable more than 10 users, install Db2 or another supported database program.

If you install by using the launchpad, see these instructions.

To install the server in an environment without access to the Internet, go to the All Downloads page, download a repository for the server and trial licenses, and install by using IBM Installation Manager.

Note: During the installation process, you have the option to install different applications. You do not have to install all of them; you can install only a subset of the applications. These options are for advanced installation scenarios, such as distributing the applications across multiple servers or deploying multiple applications of the same type within an application group.

For information about installing and managing client access licenses, see Managing client access licenses.

Set up the server

After the installation, you must configure the server by either running the Jazz Team Server setup wizard, which is available at https://fully_qualified_host_name:9443/jts/setup (where fully_qualified_host_name is the domain for your server, and 9443 is the default port number), or by entering setup commands.

For help with the server configuration, see Configuring the server after the installation in IBM Documentation.

Install the clients

You can perform most tasks with a web browser. The client tools support advanced tasks and optimized workflows for specific roles or jobs, or provide additional functions such as integrations with other systems. Consider downloading and installing the Rational Team Concert and Rational Rhapsody Design Manager clients from the All Downloads page.
