Configuring your system for BPCU
Make sure that your CLASS path and Oracle Java Runtime Engine (JRE) are correctly configured to support the Best Practice Conversion Utility (BPCU).
To configure your system to run the BPCU
On UNIX, grant yourself execute permission to the BPCU by typing the following command:
chmod +x bpcu.sh
- Make sure the following files are in your CLASS path:
- To produce the BPCU differences report in XLSX format, make sure that the following files are in your CLASS path:
To specify the JRE for the utility, add the following entry to the appropriate file:
Run BPCU with a 64-bit JRE.
The BPCU uses the JRE specified by the JAVA_HOME environment variable in the following files:
- (Windows) bpcu.bat
- (UNIX) bpcu.sh
- To avoid out-of-memory issues, set Max Heap Size option in the bpcu.bat file to 4 GB.
- If you plan to run the BPCU on an AR System server that enforces encryption in its API, add the following items to the JRE that BPCU will use.
Files and providers to add to BPCU JRE on encrypted servers
Add to this directory or file
On Oracle Solaris, UNIX, and Windows
On IBM AIX and DB2, UNIX, and Windows
If you have installed a BMC Remedy Encryption Security product on a BMC Remedy Java client, such as BMC Remedy Developer Studio or BMC Remedy Data Import, you do not have to verify that your configuration matches the preceding specifications. Instead, use the same Oracle Java Developer's Kit (JDK) and JRE used by the client for BPCU.
