Installation Instructions

Review the Installation Guide in the Rational Change Documentation Library.

Review also Chapter 8: Upgrading Rational Change page in the Rational Change installation guide.

Procedure:
  1. Before you begin, ensure that you have performed a successful backup of your Rational Change databases.

  2. Log in to the machine where Rational Change is installed as the user who installed Rational Change.

  3. Unzip (Windows) or untar (UNIX) the patch file into <CHANGE_APP_HOME>/WEB-INF/packages. The resultant directory will have the name rc<patch version>.

    For example, on UNIX:
    $ cd <CHANGE_APP_HOME>/WEB-INF/packages
    $ tar xvf <file path>


  4. Install the Interim Fix
    1. Login to Rational Change as Admin, and click the System Administration link in the action panel.
    2. Click on the Package Installer tab, select this fix pack from the Available Packages listbox, and click the Install button.
    3. Add below tags to "WEB-INF\web.xml" just before the commented line "<!-- The encoding filter needs to be first to correctly commit the"
      <filter>
      <filter-name>ParamFilter</filter-name>
      <filter-class>com.telelogic.cs.filters.ParamFilter</filter-class>
      <init-param>
      <param-name>excludeParams</param-name>
      <param-value>(.*\.|^|.*|\[('|"))(c|C)lass(\.|('|")]|\[).*</param-value>
      </init-param>
      </filter>
      <filter-mapping>
      <filter-name>ParamFilter</filter-name>
      <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
      </filter-mapping>
    4. After the patch installation is successful, stop and re-start Rational Change.

      Notes:
      • If Rational Change is running in the WAS or WASCE application server, restart the application server
      • If you are using the OSLC REST API (used to integrate with products such as Rational Publishing Engine and Rational Quality Manager) for the first time, stop and start Rational Change again to activate the API.

  5. Uninstall the Interim Fix:
    If it becomes necessary to remove this iFix after it has been installed, apply the following steps.
    1. Login to Rational Change as Admin, and click the System Administration link in the action panel.
    2. Click on the Package Installer tab, select the fix pack from the Installed Packages listbox, and click the Uninstall button.
    3. Delete below tags from "WEB-INF\web.xml" just before the commented line "<!-- The encoding filter needs to be first to correctly commit the"

How critical is this fix?

Impact Assessment
Impact Description

This is a maintenance release. It contains fixes for client-reported and internally found defects.

Test Results

Definitions

Regression: An error in the Maintenance Delivery Vehicle (MDV) that produces incorrect or unexpected behavior causing a supported feature to stop functioning as designed.
This includes:

  • Coding errors that cause a regression
  • Documentation or packaging problems that cause a regression
  • Errors reported in a new function delivered in a MDV that cause a regression

Incomplete: An error in the MDV has not regressed, but does not work as designed.
This includes:

  • Fixed APARs which did not solve the original problem but did not break anything new
  • APARs reporting documentation errors, such as readme errors, that cause problems applying an MDV but do not lead to a regression

Notes:
  • Regression and incomplete APARs are considered fix-in-error or MDV-in-error
  • Definitions above apply only to valid APARs that result in product fixes (APARs returned as working-as-designed are not assessed for being fix-in-error)
  • Issues in major releases due to new functionality do not apply in this definition

There are no known regressions to report.

To save time, know the answers to these questions:

  • What software versions were you running when the problem occurred?
  • Do you have logs, traces, or messages that are related to the problem?
  • Can you reproduce the problem? If so, what steps do you take to reproduce it?
