IBM Engineering Systems Design Rhapsody - Model Manager 7.0 M2 Milestone
About the download: The Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) all-in-one installer includes the option to deploy a shared Jazz Team Server and the Change and Configuration Management (CCM), Quality Management (QM), Requirements Management (RM), Jazz Reporting Service (JRS), Architecture Management (AM), and Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights (ENI) applications, and trial licenses for Engineering Workflow Management, Engineering Test Management, Rhapsody Model Manager, and Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next that unlock access to capabilities provided by the applications. While you can perform most tasks with a web browser, the all-in-one installer also includes options to install client tools that support advanced tasks and optimized workflows for specific roles or jobs, or tools that provide additional functions such as integrations with other systems.
It isn't necessary to install Design Manager (the Design Management installation package). However, you can decide to install Design Manager on the same Jazz Team Server as your Rhapsody Model Manager if you have sufficient system resources. This approach can be useful if you are evaluating and exploring the features and capabilities of Rhapsody Model Manager, which is the next generation of Design Management. You might also want to try Rhapsody Model Manager with a new project.
Use Rational Rhapsody to create and edit the models hosted by Rhapsody Model Manager.
Plan and prepare
For known issues with this release, see the release notes.
For supported platforms and memory requirements, see the system requirements.
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.bat or launchpad.sh, 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 need to install the server in an environment without access to the Internet, visit 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, complete the steps in 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).
Additional guidance: For help with the setup wizard, see Running the setup wizard in the product documentation.
Install the clients
Rhapsody Model Manager provides a server-based interaction using a web browser. Models are created and edited in the Rhapsody client and loaded into a Rhapsody Model Manager project area using the Engineering Workflow Mangement Eclipse client. Download the IBM Engineering Workflow Management Client from the All Downloads tab.
Additional guidance: For help with installing and setting up the Rhapsody Model Manager, see Installing Rhapsody Model Manager in the knowledge center.
