Documentation: Missing information about updating the catalog.txt file on Apache Tomcat

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

In the Rational Publishing Engine 1.2 information center, the Verifying the Reporting Data Services Adapters help topic does not include information for updating the catalog.txt file on Apache Tomcat.

Resolving the problem

Instead of referring to the information in the "What to do next" section of the Verifying the Reporting Data Services Adapters help topic, use the following instructions:

If the project list for the Rational RequisitePro Data Services does not show new projects, even though Rational RequisiteWeb shows them, you might need to updated the path to the catalog.txt file. The catalog.txt file lists all the projects that Rational RequisitePro uses. Ensure that the path for the catalog.txt file is correctly specified for the VegaDataServices.Adaptor.RequisitePro.CatalogFilePath parameter.

WebSphere Application Server:

    1. Open the administrative console in a browser. Example: http://server:port/ibm/console/logon.jsp
    2. Click Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications > Data Services > Initialize parameters for servlets.
    3. Click VegaDataServices.Adaptor.RequisitePro.CatalogFilePath.
    4. Update the parameter with the correct path on your computer that points to the catalog.txt file. Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC\RequisitePro\ReqWeb\projects\catalog.txt.
    5. Click OK to save the changes.

Apache Tomcat:
    1. Navigate to %CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\DataServices\WEB-INF.
    2. Open the web.xml file.
    3. Locate the parameter named VegaDataServices.Adaptor.RequisitePro.CatalogFilePath.
    4. Update the parameter with the correct path on your computer that points to the catalog.txt file. Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC\RequisitePro\ReqWeb\projects\catalog.txt.
    5. Save the changes to the web.xml file.
    6. Restart Apache Tomcat.
