Review the system requirements, prerequisites, and release notes

Important: A IBM® Rational® Rhapsody Design Manager M3 milestone build is currently not available, but will be soon; if you want to install Rational Rhapsody Design Manager, download and install the complete M1 milestone. Rhapsody Design Management M 1 is not compatible with the M3 candidate milestone.

Important: If you installed Rational Software Architect Design Manager 3.5 M1, you must uninstall the M1 release before you install the M3 release.

Before you install Rational Software Architect Design Manager 3.5 M3, review the installation prerequisites, release notes, and system requirements for Rational Software Architect Design Manager. Much of the information for IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager 3.0 also applies to this milestone.

Important for Rational Software Architect Design Manager:

  • IBM Rational Software Architect 8.0.3 is a prerequisite for this milestone.
  • If milestone 1 (m1) of IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager Client Extension is installed, you must uninstall that version.
  • IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager Client Extension, version 3.5m3 must be installed.
  • To test the functionality for reverse transformations, you must download an additional item for the IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager Client Extension from the All Downloads tab. However, if you installed this patch in the 3.5 milestone 1 release, you do not need to install the update; RSA-FeaturePatch-3.5M1.zip contains identical content as RSA-FeaturePatch-3.5M3.zip. If you have not installed this update, to install it, complete the following steps:
    1. Ensure that the following software is installed:
      • Rational Software Architect, version 8.0.3
      • Design Management, version 3.5 M3 or later
    2. Go to the installation location for Rational Software Architect, version 8.0.3 and locate the dropins folder.
    3. Extract the RSA-FeaturePatch-3.5M3.zip file in the dropins folder. The dropins folder should have the following structure:
      features
      	CompareMerge_FP_20110630_1.0.0
      		feature.xml
      	JavaUMLTransform_FP_20110630_1.0.0
      		feature.xml
      	com.ibm.xtools.transform.ui_feature_patch_1.0.0
      		feature.xml		
      plugins
      	com.ibm.xtools.modeler.compare_7.60.310.v20110630_1740.jar
      	com.ibm.xtools.transform.java.uml_7.5.810.v20110630_1740.jar
      	com.ibm.xtools.transform.ui_7.100.310.v20110803_2126.jar
    1. Start Rational Software Architect, version 8.0.3.
    2. In the Plug-in Registry view, verify the location and versions of the plug-ins listed above. If earlier versions are loaded, restart Rational Software Architect by using the -clean option.

Download and install

For detailed installation instructions for Design Management 3.5 M3 Milestone, see the Interactive installation guide for IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager 3.0, which also applies to this milestone. For quick, high-level instructions, complete the following steps:

  1. If you installed a previous milestone or release candidate release of Rational Software Architect Design Manager 3.5, you must completely uninstall all components (the server, the server extensions, import engine, and client extensions) before installing this release. Use IBM Installation Manager to uninstall any components from earlier releases. However, you do not need to remove the Rational Software Architect 8.0.3 patch that you might have installed in milestone 1.
  2. If you installed a previous milestone, release candidate, or final general availability release of IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager 3.0, do not install this milestone in the same directory structure.
    • If you install the design management portion on the same computer as a previous installation of IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager 3.0, follow the instructions to ensure that there are no port conflicts.
    • Do not install or run the import engine on the same computer as an existing installation of the import engine.
  3. On the All Downloads tab, download the following .zip files based on the Rational modeling product that you use:
    • IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager - All
  4. Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip files into a temporary location, so that you have the following directories:
    • IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager: RSADM_Setup, DM_Server, RSADM_Server, RSADM_ImportEngine, RSADM_Client
  5. To begin the installation, in the *_Setup directory, run the launchpad file, and then click Install the server.
  6. In IBM Installation Manager, install the server and server extension.
  7. To install the import engine, which is a utility that sends models to the server, run the launchpad file, and then click Install the import engine.
  8. In IBM Installation Manager, install the import engine. You can install the import engine on any computer that contains model content to import to the Design Management Server.
  9. Configure the Design Management Server; the server includes Apache Derby to support up to 10 users. To enable more than 10 users, install IBM DB2® or another supported database program. For instructions on how to set up and configure the server, see Setting up and configuring the Design Management Server.
  10. Optional: To directly connect Rational artifacts to the Design Management Server to view, search, review, and comment on designs, complete the following steps for the Rational product that you use:
    • Rational Software Architect: Install the client extension into an installation of Rational Software Architect, version 8.0 3. Use the launchpad to begin the client extension installation process. If you do not have a licensed version of Rational Software Architect installed, you can download and install an evaluation version.
  11. Optional: To quickly test Design Management Server and its related capabilities, complete the following steps for the Rational product that you use:
    • Rational Software Architect: On the Jazz Team Server Home page, click the link for Rational Software Architect Sample. On the Rational Software Architect Sample page, click Create Sample Project to import and view the sample.
