This document contains the following sections:

1 Introduction to Oracle Team Productivity Center Server

Oracle Team Productivity Center is an Oracle JDeveloper feature that provides access to a set of application life cycle management (ALM) tools.

Oracle Team Productivity Center also presents information about the latest builds undergoing development. A build dashboard and build summary present at-a-glance information about the status of development builds, with links to let you quickly find the details of issues that interest you in the latest build.

For more information about Oracle Team Productivity Center Server, see "Introduction to Oracle Team Productivity Center " in Developing Applications with Oracle Team Productivity Center.

2 Planning Your Oracle Team Productivity Center Server Installation

This section helps you to prepare your system for the Oracle Team Productivity Center Server installation.

It contains the following sections:

2.1 Knowing the Terminology

Before installing the Oracle Team Productivity Center Server, understand the terms that are used to manage the server during and after installation.

Table 1 Terminology Used to Manage Oracle Team Productivity Center

Term Description

Client

The developer's Integrated Development Environment (in this case Oracle JDeveloper) which when connected to the server, facilitates interaction with team members, selecting work items, tracking project development, and so on.

Server

The software that manages the connections between the Team Productivity Center features in Oracle JDeveloper and data repositories (such as a bug database, directory of product features and specifications, and so on).

Connector

The element that defines the data structures and user interface between Oracle Team Productivity Center and a given data repository. For example, presenting a list of bugs from the bug tracking tool in Oracle JDeveloper requires a connector to the bug tracking tool. For more information on this, see the online help for developing a connector.

Plug-in

Oracle Team Productivity Center uses two distinct plug-ins, Hudson and CruiseControl, for each automated build system. The plug-ins are generated in the folders that you create during the installation. They facilitate automated build system, and send data to Oracle Team Productivity Center.


Note:

You can install Oracle Team Productivity Center Server without installing a connector at the same time. You can also install a connector or generate a plug-in at a later time after the installation of the server.

2.2 Verifying Your System Requirements for Installing Oracle Team Productivity Center Server

For information about recommended CPU, memory, display, and hard drive configurations, see Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications

For the most current information about software that is certified for use with Oracle Team Productivity Center, see the following documentation on Oracle Technology Network (OTN): http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/documentation/index.html.

2.3 Understanding the Prerequisites for Installing Oracle Team Productivity Center Server

Before you run the installer, ensure that the following prerequisites are met:

  • Ensure that you have all user privileges that you require to access the database that Oracle Team Productivity Center Server is associated with, before beginning the installation.

    For example, if you are using an Oracle database, ensure that you have the privileges to the Connect and Resource options.

    To enable user privileges, run the following command in SQLPlus:

    create user user_ID identified by password; grant connect, resource to user_ID identified by password with admin option;
    

    For example,

    create user tpcadmin identified by welcome1; grant connect, resource to tpcadmin identified by welcome1 with admin option;
    

    Note:

    For the Oracle JDeveloper installer in Japanese language, ensure that the database supports the appropriate character set. For example, if Oracle Database is the database on which Oracle JDeveloper is installed, ensure that the following settings are made:

    Database Character Set = AL32UTF8
    National Character Set = UTF8
    
  • The product distribution is available as a platform-independent .jar file. Obtain the software from the following location on OTN: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/tpc/downloads/index.html

  • If you are using Oracle WebLogic Server as the installation server, ensure that you install and configure Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.1.2.0.0). Also, make sure that the version of the database on which you plan to install Oracle Team Productivity Center, is supported.

    See the following documentation on Oracle Technology Network (OTN): http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/documentation/index.html.

  • Ensure that the repositories that you plan to install are of supported versions.

    See the following documentation on Oracle Technology Network (OTN): http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/jdev/documentation/index.html.

  • Ensure that you have downloaded and installed the required JDK on the system. For information about the JDK versions, see "Installing a JDK" in Planning an Installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

  • Set the JAVA_HOME variable and PATH variable before installing Oracle Team Productivity Center.

    To set the JAVA_HOME variable

    From a command line interface (that is, a Linux or DOS command shell), enter the following command, substituting the JAVA_HOME directory of the installation system where indicated:

    setenv JAVA_HOME location_of_java_home

    For example:

    On a Windows system with JDK 7 Update 15 installed in the Program Files directory on the C:\ drive, enter the following command:

    set JAVA_HOME C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_15

    On a Linux system with JDK 7 Update 15 installed, enter the following command:

    setenv JAVA_HOME /home/Java/jdk1.7.0_15

    To set the PATH variable

    To set the PATH variable, enter the following command:

    setenv PATH JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

  1. Using the Hudson user interface, navigate to Manage Plugins that is located in Manage Hudson. Click Advanced.

  2. In Upload Plugin, provide the path to the HudsonTpcPlugin.hpi file. Click Upload.

  3. Restart Hudson to install the plug-in.

  4. To verify that the Hudson Team Productivity Center plug-in is installed properly, click Installed. A list of installed plug-ins is displayed. Verify whether the uploaded plug-in shows in the list.

Configuring Hudson Test Data Collector to Transfer Data to Oracle Team Productivity Center Server

To configure the Hudson data test collector to transfer data to Oracle Team Productivity Center server, do the following:

  1. Navigate to Project Dashboard in Hudson, and click Configure for the carbon-dating project that you want to configure. The Project Configuration screen is displayed.

  2. On the Project Configuration screen, select Publish test results to Oracle Team Productivity Center.

  3. Click the help icon on the RHS of each item in the list for details about the Oracle Team Productivity Center Test Data publisher.

  4. Select Publish test results to Oracle Team Productivity Center located at the top of the help screen to include Oracle Team Productivity Center Data Publisher for post builds. The Publisher prompts you to enter the following information:

    • TPC Server URL

    • Username

    • Password

  5. Enter the details and click Test Connection. The wizard verifies the information provided, and displays the message, Connection established.

    Note:

    At this stage of the configuration, you can also configure the Junit test results with Oracle Team Productivity Center. However, this is optional.

  6. Save the configuration settings.

8.2 Installing and Running CruiseControl Test Collection

The CruiseControl continuous integration tool collects test results and makes them available to Oracle Team Productivity Center Server.

8.2.1 Obtaining the Software

To obtain the software, complete the following steps:

  1. Download the CruiseControl .zip file that is available on the following website:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/cruisecontrol/files/CruiseControl/

    Obtain the latest version of the software.

  2. Extract the contents of the zip file to your local folder.

8.2.2 Installing and Running CruiseControl

To install and run the CruiseControl plug-in for Oracle Team Productivity Center Server, do the following:

  1. Generate the Test Plug-in for CruiseControl using the Oracle Team Productivity Center Server installer. For more information, see Section 3, "Installing Oracle Team Productivity Center Server".

    You can specify the deployment folder to be the same as your CruiseControl install directory located in your Oracle Team Prod, or any other directory of your choice.

  2. Create an ANT Publisher plug-in for your CruiseControl configuration file, config.xml. See Example 5.

    Example 5 ANT Publisher Plug-In for TPC Test Collector Invocation

    <antpublisher anthome="apache-ant-1.7.0" antworkingdir="." buildfile="tpc-test-collector.xml" uselogger="false" usedebug="true" usequiet="false" target="publish"/>
    

    Note:

    The version of Apache ANT might differ with different versions of CruiseControl.

    Example 5 shows CruiseControl version 2.8.4 that uses Apache-ANT version 1.7.0. If you use a different version of CruiseControl, you need to modify the anthome attribute to point to your Apache-ANT home.

    If you install Oracle Team Productivity Center Test Collector to a folder other than the CruiseControl install directory, you need to modify the buildfile attribute to point to your CruiseControl install directory.

    For example, if you installed the TPC Test Collector on Windows to %CCDIR%\myTPC folder, you need to specify the buildfile attribute as:

    buildfile="myTPC\tpc-test-collector.xml".

  3. Add the ANT Publisher you created in step 2 to the list of publishers for your CruiseControl project, in config.xml.

    Using the connectfour sample project as an example, modify the existing publisher tags as shown in this example:

    Example 6 Add ANT publisher to list of publishers

    <publishers>
             <onsuccess>
                  <artifactspublisher 
                   dest="artifacts/$project.name"
                   file="projects/$project.name/target/$project.name.jar"/>
             </onsuccess>
             <antpublisher 
              anthome="apache-ant-1.7.0" 
              antworkingdir="." 
              buildfile="tpc-test-collector.xml" 
              uselogger="false" 
              usedebug="true" 
              usequiet="false" 
              target="publish"/>
        </publishers>      
    
  4. Specify the modifications you need to make to trigger a build. You can use filesystem or svn to trigger the project build.

    Example 7 and Example 8 illustrate both use cases:

    Example 7 Trigger a build with filesystem

    <modificationset quietperiod="30">
                  <filesystem folder="projects/${project.name}"/>
              </modificationset>
    

    Example 8 Trigger a build with svn

    <modificationset quietperiod="30">
                  <svn localWorkingCopy="projects/${project.name}"/>
              </modificationset>
    

    Note:

    If you use SVN, make sure you configure your Subversion repository to point to the projects/${project.name} folder so that Subversion triggers a build any time a check-in is performed.

    For other version control systems, see instructions at http://cruisecontrol.sourceforge.net/main/configxml.html#modificationset.

  5. Schedule the build and test collection.

    Using the ANT builder as an example, the schedule element builds the project and collects test data every 300 seconds:

    Example 9 Schedule build with Apache ANT

    <schedule interval="300">
                  <ant anthome="apache-ant-17.0"
                   buildfile="projects/${project.name}/build.xml"/>
              </schedule> 
    

    For more information about the config.xml settings, see:

    http://cruisecontrol.sourceforge.net/main/configxml.html

  6. Start CruiseControl using the cruisecontrol.bat file located in the install folder.

    If you install CruiseControl as a service, you can use the Windows service created to start the CruiseControl.
