Command-line adapter

I need to install a command line adapter for one of our customers sing RQM and in the help notes I have found an information which sounds a bit confusing to me: "The executable file java.exe must be accessible in the path."
On which machine should this jave.exe be: Tester machine, server machine or Target teste machine?

Thank you,

Here is a portion of the 'Read Me' that talks about pre-requisites for running the Command Line Adapter

Before running this adapter, please make sure that
- java.exe is accessible in the path. The version of JAVA required is 1.5 or later
- the input information is available to start the adapter, namely
o the Jazz repository URL, typically http://<qmserver>:<port>/qm
o a user ID to login to RQM that has appropriate licenses to login as an adapter
o the password or this user
o the project area, if not registering with the default "Quality Manager" project area.
NOTE: The context root "/qm" may need to change depending on your servers configuration. The Jazz repository URL should match the Public URI configured for your RQM server.

The Command Line Adapter requires Java to run but does not come with it's own copy so you must have Java installed and accessable in the path on the system where you are running the command line adapter.

One more quick note
If you haven't already, I would take quick look at the following article 

This will give a good foundation of the Command Line Adapater

Hi Zica,

the part of the documentation you're referring to is dedicated to the Target machine:

Configure Rational Quality Manager Adapter

1. Rational Quality Manager provides command line adapter to execute tests. In a standard installation, this adapter will be present in C:\Program Files\IBM\JazzTeamServer\server\conf\qm\adapters\ Extract and Copy RQM command line adapter folder to the client machine where JUnit scripts reside. In this example the script is copied to folder C:\RQM Adapter\RQMCommandLineAdapter.

2. Create a configuration file (Junitconfig.ini) to connect to RQM server. Execute following command from Command prompt

C:\RQM Adapter\RQMCommandLineAdapter> start.bat -repository https://jazz-server:9443/qm -user ADMIN -password ADMIN -adapter RQMAdapter -adapterName Mani-RQMJUnit -projectArea JKE+Banking+%28Quality+Management%29 -configFile Junitconfig.ini

User will get the following success response

The adapter is now connected
Created Commandline Adapter


  • Please refer to "readme.txt" present in the RQMCommandLineAdapter folder for additional parameters
  • If you get error message at this stage, check for the input parameters and the Java setting (CLASSPATH, PATH). Following tec note can also be helpful

The above was from my my article ---- instead of Junit , replace it by your cmd line adapter
