Optim Build Numbers and Versions

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How to find the build number for a specific Optim version

Cause

Optim versions for customers can be downloaded from your personally configured Passport Advantage ( PA ) download area.
The names of the files, which will be saved on disk are crypt and do not contain any hint about the version in itself.

Sometimes it is necessary to find out which version of Optim is a such file, named like this: CZD0AEN.ZIP

Answer

In Optim versions before 8, there is an empty directory in the directory structure, after the downloaded compressed file was extracted.

The name of this empty directory, starting with "Bld..." reflects the build number of the specific Optim version.

In a command line operation on Unix or Windows,

the directory structure can be created with the command "ls -la" for Unix and Linux, or with the command "dir" for Windows.

  • Example from Optim 7.3.1 for Linux:

$ ls -la

drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP      4096 Aug  4 06:51 Bld3638
drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP      4096 Aug  4 06:51 enterpris
-rwxr--r-- 1 optim731 OPTIMGRP  90196458 Aug  4 06:51 install.bin
drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP      4096 Aug  4 06:51 Linux
drwxr-xr-x 2 optim731 OPTIMGRP      4096 Aug  4 06:52 OptimConnectInstallationManuals
-rwxr--r-- 1 optim731 OPTIMGRP       953 Aug  4 06:51 optim_installer.properties
  • With this directory name, Bld3638, the build number can be used to find out the appropriate Optim version; in this example "3638" :

Starting with Optim 9.1.0, the Optim build id and fix pack version
can be found in the install directory in subfolder ../rt/bin
as a file, called rtbuild.h

The content of this file, looks like this, taken from version 9.1.0.4
which is the Optim version 9.1.0 Fix Pack 04:
cat rtbuild.h
#define RTBUILD_SEQUENCE 4275
#define RTBUILD_SEQUENCE_STR "4275"
#define RTBUILD_FIXPACK "04"

The following table represents the build number and its related Optim version number.
