Enabling logging for DWA Interoperation server

Technote (FAQ)


How do you enable logging for IBM Rational DOORS Web Access Interoperation server?


In default setting, logging for IBM Rational DOORS Web Access Interoperation server is disabled; you need to enable it when necessary.


To enable IBM Rational DOORS Web Access (DWA) Interoperation Server (Interop) logging, follow these steps:

  1. Stop all DWA components.

  2. Edit the Interop shortcut or start command to add the following additional parameters:
    -l PATH_TO_LOGFILE -loglevel 8

    For example:
    C:\DOORS\aqua\bin\doors.exe -d 56000@IBM-D2D7AEAC111 -interop -brokerHost localhost -brokerPort 61616 -l "C:\temp\interop.log" -loglevel 8

  3. Start all the DWA components in the following order:
    1. DWA Broker

    2. Interop

    3. Derby (optional)

    4. DWA Server

  • This log can be helpful while troubleshooting performance related issues for Interop.

  • This also logs all the detailed activities performed by Interop and errors, if there are any.

  • System does not keep the added parameters so you need to enable logging every time the server restarted, if necessary.

  • If you want to disable Interop logging, stop all DWA components and, when restarting DWA, restart Interop without adding the debug parameters, or reboot the server.
