Error description

  • SYMPTOMS
    
    Library Manager does nothing when launched although on Windows,
    LibConfig.exe is running in the
    background.
    
    Rational Integration Tester displays the splash screen and goes
    no further.ᄊ
    
    On Windows GHTester.exe is running in the background.
    
    CAUSE
    
    Values for system environment variables listed below are
    preventing Java executing
    correctly:
    
    IBM_JAVA_OPTIONS
    JAVA_OPTIONS
    JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS
    
    This is because they cause RIT to run against the wrong JVM
    

Local fix

  • 1. Unset these variables on the system
    
    2. Create scripts/BAT files for LibConfig and RIT that clear
    these
    variables and launch the executables.
    

Problem summary

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix

Comments

  • If any of the following environment variables are set when
    Rational Integration Tester or Library Manager is run, then
    problems may occur:
    
    IBM_JAVA_OPTIONS
    _JAVA_OPTIONS
    JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS
    
    When launching Rational Integration Tester, the splash screen
    appears but the project selector never displays.  Library
    Manager simply does not appear.  This causes a problem during
    installations where Library Manager must be run.
    
    In version 8.6.0 of Rational Integration Tester (and the RTVS
    Agent) the Library Manager launch batch files used during
    installation have been changed to clear these environment
    variables before attempting to launch Library Manager.  This
    prevents the installation from failing to complete.
    Additionally, a new script named GHTester.bat is now included in
    the installation, which clears these variables before launching
    Rational Integration Tester.   LibConfigInstall.bat  can be used
    to clear the variables before running Library Manager.
