Download Description

IBM WEBi is a standalone Web-based business client for working with content from multiple back-end servers. For V1.0 Modification 3, IBM WEBi works with DB2® Content Manager and DB2 Content Manager OnDemand.

Important: You can have only one instance of IBM WEBi on your system unless you are using WebSphere® Application Server Network Deployment in a clustered environment.

Space requirements

  • Approximately 160 MB of disk space to store the downloadable part.
  • 450 MB of temporary disk space to install the product.
  • Approximately 350 MB of space for the installed product.

IBM WEBi deployment changes

In previous versions of IBM WEBi, the client was deployed into WEBi_Server that the installation program created for you. Beginning in Version 1.0.2, IBM WEBi can deploy into server1 or another existing application server. During an upgrade from V1.0 or V1.0.1 to V1.0.3, the upgrade program will undeploy IBM WEBi for you and deploy the client into the application server specified during the upgrade.

Sizing and capacity planning

The DB2 Content Manager and DB2 Content Manager OnDemand clients have different functionality and performance characteristics, and drive different performance and load characteristics onto their DB2 Content Manager and DB2 Content Manager OnDemand servers. The amount of necessary CPU processing power, RAM, and disk space vary depending on your specific workload and your desired system capacity and performance. To build the best working system that you can test and then move into production, work with the Techline team to identify the necessary requirements by machine. Your IBM Sales representative can contact Techline for you.
