Design Management 4.0
About the download: IBM® Installation Manager deploys a Jazz Team Server as well as the Design Management capabilities. You can install Design Management onto its own, separate Jazz Team Server or you can install Design Management onto an existing, shared Jazz Team Server that includes the full set of Rational® solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) capabilities.
There are three ways to integrate the Design Management capabilities with Rational Team Concert, Rational Quality Manager, and Rational Requirements Composer:
- (Standard approach) In IBM Installation Manager, add both the CLM and Design Management repositories to the preferences, and then install the CLM and Design Management installation packages at the same time.
- Install Collaborative Lifecycle Management 2012, and then install Design Management into the same package group.
- Install Design Management, and then install Collaborative Lifecycle Management 2012 into the same package group.
To explore the Design Management capabilities only, download Design Management from the All Downloads tab. This option installs Design Management with its own Jazz Team Server.
You can view designs on the Design Management Server from two different modeling products. You can use Rational Software Architect, for software designers in the IT space, or Rational Rhapsody Design Manager, for systems and embedded software engineers.
Plan and prepare
Read the release notes to find out about known issues with this release.
Review the system requirements to find out about supported platforms and memory requirements.
To get started quickly with a small deployment using the default topology and Apache Derby databases, proceed to the next step and install the server.
For advanced deployments, read the interactive installation guide to plan your deployment.
Install the server and applications
Visit the All Downloads page and download and extract the files for the the Jazz Team Server and the Design Management application repository; then, use IBM Installation Manager to install them. For detailed installation instructions for Design Management 4.0, see the online help.
Note: Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip files into same location and ensure that the utility does not create any subfolders during the extraction process (some utilities create new subfolders by default). If subfolders are created during this process, you cannot continue the installation and setup process.
Set up the server
If you installed Apache Tomcat and are using the default settings, you must use http://example.com:9443/jts/setup (where example.com is the domain for your server). After the installation, follow the Jazz Team Server setup wizard. For detailed server setup instructions for Design Management 4.0, see the online help.
Install optional client extensions
The Rational Software Architect Design Management Client Extension and the Rational Rhapsody Design Management Client Extension provide design editing capabilities that you can use with the Design Management Server. You can use the extensions to edit, search, view, collaborate on, and link to designs from within Rational Software Architect version 126.96.36.199 and 8.5 and Rational Rhapsody version 8.0.
Important: If you plan to connect Rational Software Architect with the Design Management Server, you must apply an iFix to the Rational Software Architect client extension, which is located on this All Downloads page. For additional information, about the client extension, see the workarounds page.
For instructions on how to install the Rational Software Architect client extension, see the associated help topic. To learn how to connect Rational Software Architect with the Design Management Server, see the associated help topic.
For instructions on how to install the Rational Rhapsody client extension, see the associated help topic. To learn how to connect Rational Rhapsody with the Design Management Server, see the associated help topic.
