Preparing to upgrade BMC Remedy Developer Studio
When planning to install BMC Remedy Developer Studio, remember these tips:
- Install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on the computer that will run BMC Remedy Developer Studio.
- If you are connecting to servers in different locales, install a multi-language version of the JRE.
- BMC Remedy Developer Studio requires that the maximum memory setting of the <DeveloperStudioInstallationDir>\devstudio.ini file be at least 512 MB of RAM. For medium-sized applications that have a few thousand forms and workflow objects, this configuration is enough — both for application development and for using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) features. However, for large scale applications, such as ITSM, this configuration might be enough only for application development, and not sufficient for using RDP features. In such cases, you can increase the maximum memory to 1024 MB. Increasing memory size might slow the startup time of BMC Remedy Developer Studio, so it is best to increase memory size only when required.
If you have at least 512 MB of RAM, but you receive errors regarding space issues (for example, if you try to open many objects at once), change the -Xmx512m setting in the devstudio.ini file to increase the space. For example, if you have at least 1 GB, change this setting to -Xmx1024m.
- The Localization Toolkit option is available by default.
