Installing and configuring the integration

Some additional installation and configuration steps are required to integrate IBM® Rational® Developer for i and IBM Engineering Workflow Management (EWM).

About this task

The sequence of the installation steps and the Engineering Workflow Management package to install depend on the Rational Developer for i version.

Procedure

  • To integrate Engineering Workflow Management and Rational Developer for i V9.6.x and later, you must proceed in the following way:
    1. Install the Rational Developer for i package. For more information about the Rational Developer for i installation, see Installing Rational Developer for i V9.6.x.

      You cannot install the Engineering Workflow Management client integration for IBM i feature at the same time as you install Rational Developer for i, because the feature is not available if Engineering Workflow Management is not present.

    2. Install Engineering Workflow Management by following the instructions in Installing by using Installation Manager. You must select the Engineering Workflow Management - Client Extension for Eclipse 4.x IDE package in IBM Installation Manager.
    3. Start IBM Installation Manager and use the Install option to add the Engineering Workflow Management client integration for IBM i feature to the Rational Developer for i product installation.
  • To integrate Engineering Workflow Management and Rational Developer for i V9.5.x and prior, you must proceed in the following way:
    1. Install Engineering Workflow Management by following the instructions in Installing by using Installation Manager. You must select the Engineering Workflow Management - Client Extension for Eclipse 4.4.x IDE or Engineering Workflow Management - Client Extension for Eclipse 4.6.x IDE package in IBM Installation Manager.
    2. Install the Rational Developer for i package in the same package group as the Engineering Workflow Management client. For more information about the Rational Developer for i installation, see Installing Rational Developer for i V9.5.x.
    3. Start IBM Installation Manager and use the Modify option to add the Engineering Workflow Management client integration for IBM i feature to the Rational Developer for i product installation.
