Abstract

After updating IBM Rational Test Workbench (RTW) components you are only able to run them as an administrator or as the user that ran the update.

Content

A defect has been found in the update packages for the following products:

  • IBM Rational Integration Tester (RIT)
  • IBM Rational Integration Tester Agent (RIT-A)
  • IBM Rational Integration Tester Platform Pack (RIT-Platform)
  • IBM Rational Test Control Panel (RTCP)

It affects versions 8.0.1.1, 8.0.1.2 and 8.0.1.3 and is logged as APAR PM89629.

SYMPTOM

Attempt to run as a user other than an administrator or the user who ran the update, the program fails to start and results in the error:

java.lang.RuntimeException: No application id has been found.
 at org.eclipse.equinox.internal.app.EclipseAppContainer.startDefaultApp(EclipseAppContainer.java:242)

CAUSE

Some of the files have been created without read permissions for users other than the owner.

WORKAROUND:

  1. Log in to the system as an administrator.
  2. Access the properties of the files listed below.
