The Java Installer installs Connect CDC on UNIX, Linux, and IBM i platforms. For more information on the IBM I installation procedures, see the Connect CDC IBM i Installation Guide.

The install procedure does the following:

  1. Gathers input describing where to install and information about the host environment.

  2. Verifies information gathered in Step 1 before copying any Connect CDC files:

    • The version of the Java Run-time Environment must be at a level acceptable for the Connect CDC executable processes.

    • The Java compiler should be available wherever Connect CDC is installed.

    You receive a warning if the javac file is not available. The install can continue without javac, but expressions and join tables will not function.

    • The TCP/IP port number chosen for use by the Connect CDC Listener V5.8 must be available and not used or reserved by any other service.

  3. Configures shell scripts using input gathered in Step 1.

  4. Installs the files.

    This involves copying components from the source location to the user-chosen target directory on the host.

  5. On UNIX and Linux platforms, configures the host so that Connect CDC Listener starts at host boot or IPL. This is an optional feature; the user can choose to do this or not.

  6. Starts the Connect CDC Listener.

  7. Saves the install configuration. This step creates a properties file in the target install directory with the file name of the host being installed and a file extension of ini. This file contains the parameters values chosen for this host install. Along with the log file created during the install, this file serves as a record of the install. Subsequent runs of the Installer attempt to locate this file.
