Setting up the environment using the Apama Command Prompt
Before you can run any of the Apama tools (such as engine_send or engine_inject) or any of the Apama servers (such as the correlator or the Integration Adapter Framework which is also known as the IAF) from a normal command prompt, you have to set up your environment correctly. This includes setting the paths to the Apama installation directory, the Apama work directory, the location of the libraries, the Java location, and other environment variables. Apama provides a batch file (Windows) or shell script (UNIX) for this purpose, which is called the "Apama Command Prompt".
*On Windows, you invoke the Apama Command Prompt by choosing the following command from the Start menu:
Software AG > Tools > Apama n.n > Apama Command Prompt n.n
Keep in mind that "Software AG" is the default group name that you can change during the installation.
Alternatively, if you are already in a regular Windows command prompt, you can run the file apama_env.bat which is located in the bin directory of your Apama installation.
*On UNIX, you invoke the shell script from a Bash shell. Please note csh (C Shell) is not supported. Use the following command from within your Apama installation directory:
source bin/apama_env
It is important that you use source because invoking apama_env directly will not work.
You can add the above command to your shell initialization script (which is .bashrc in the case of the Bash shell). If you do so, every shell you use will be an Apama Command Prompt.
