Post-Installation Tasks

This chapter describes tasks you can do after installation of an instance of AquaLogic Data Services Platform, including verifying the installation, starting development of applications, and exploring Windows shortcuts and UNIX paths. The chapter also describes how to uninstall ALDSP, if required.

The chapter includes the following sections:

Figure 4-1 illustrates the current step in the overall installation process.

Verifying the Installation

Note: If you are using ALDSP 3.01 you can skip this section. Instead verify a successful installation by following the steps described in:

How To Configure the Retail Dataspace Sample Application for ALDSP 3.01

To verify that the ALDSP 3.0 installation is successful:

Step 1: Start Data Services Studio

Step 2: Configure the ALDSP-enabled Server Environment

Step 3: Start the Server

Step 1: Start Data Services Studio

You can use either Workshop for WebLogic 9.2 or Eclipse to run Data Services Studio. In this section, Eclipse 3.2.2 has been used.

  1. Open the Data Services Studio using the following Windows Start menu command:
  2. Start > All Programs > BEA Products > AquaLogic Data Services Platform 3.0 > Data Services Studio

  3. From the Workspace Launcher dialog box, select a workspace for ALDSP dataspace projects. By default, the workspace location is as follows:
  4. <bea_home>\aldsp_3.0\samples\workspaces\aldsp

  5. Click OK.
  6. If this is the first time you have opened Data Services Studio, the ALDSP Welcome screen appears.
  7. In the Install Sample Application section click Retail Dataspace Sample. This displays the Retail Dataspace Sample dialog.

Step 2: Configure the ALDSP-enabled Server Environment

Some simple domain server configuration is required. These steps are described in the following table.

Click OK.
Retail Dataspace Sample
Click Finish
Workspace is built.

Now the WebLogic Server 9.2 is configured for ALDSP and can be started.

Step 3: Start the Server

An ALDSP-enabled server is a version of WebLogic Server with additional functionality to support ALDSP deployment and runtime. The ALDSP server must be running in order to access sample data and to deploy your project.

To start your server from Data Services Studio:

  1. Locate the Servers window. If it isn't visible, use the following option command:
  2. Window > Show View > Servers

  3. In the Server window locate BEA WebLogic Server v 9.2@localhost.
  4. Right-click the server name and select Start. The start-up operation may take several minutes.
  5. After your project has automatically deployed click OK.


Starting the Development of a Data Integration Solution

Developing your own data integration solution consists of a design phase and an implementation phase.
