Apama 10.3 | Apama Documentation | Release Notes | What's New In Apama 9.9 | Installation changes in 9.9
Installation changes in 9.9
As of version 9.9, Apama is installed using the Software AG Installer, and official fixes are installed using the Software AG Update Manager. See the new Installing Apama guide for more information.
Previous Apama releases (such as 5.3) allowed you to select one of three installation types: Server, User and Developer. In the Software AG Installer, these correspond to selecting the following options from the product selection tree:
*Apama > Server. Installs the server components of Apama, including the correlator and associated command line tools.
Note: On UNIX, this is the only installation option. All other options listed here are only available on Windows.
*Apama > Dashboard Viewer. Installs the viewer tool that allows you to view and interact with dashboards that are receiving live data from an Apama dashboard server.
Note: Unlike the old User installation type, the Software AG Installer only installs the viewer tool, and does not include any other Java/C++ libraries.
*Designer > Apama > Apama Development Environment. Installs Software AG Designer which provides graphical tooling for creating Apama applications.
All Apama documentation is now installed regardless of which installation type you select.
You can quickly select all Apama components (that is, the full functionality of Apama) by clicking Typical Installations which is shown next to the product selection tree and then selecting Apama.
Due to the above-mentioned changes, all Windows start menu shortcuts have changed.
The Eclipse-based development environment previously known as Apama Studio is replaced by integration into Software AG Designer. You can open Software AG Designer, which is also based on Eclipse, by choosing the following from the Windows Start menu: All Programs > Software AG > Tools > Software AG Designer n.n. Note that Software AG is the default group name that you can change during the installation.
On Windows, the Apama work directory (APAMA_WORK) now defaults to the all-users %PUBLIC% directory, for example, C:\Users\Public\SoftwareAG\ApamaWork_n.n (with previous versions, it was in C:\Users\username).
On UNIX, the default for the Apama work directory is now ~/softwareag/apamawork_n.n.
With previous versions, the Eclipse workspace was stored under APAMA_WORK by default. Now it is in the location that you select when you start Software AG Designer for the first time. By default, the workspace is located in the C:\Users\username directory.
It is now also possible to install Apama using Command Central. You can then install Apama to any machine on which the Platform Manager is running. See the new Installing Apama guide for more information.
