Configuring your system for the BPCU
Make sure that your CLASS path and Oracle Java Runtime Engine (JRE) are correctly configured for the Best Practice Conversion Utility (BPCU).
To configure your system for 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 difference 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 the BPCU will use.
Files and providers to add to BPCU JRE on encrypted servers
JRE directory or file to add the files to
Files to add for Oracle Solaris, UNIX,
and Microsoft Windows
Files to add for IBM AIX and DB2,
UNIX, and Windows
These files should be from IBM.

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.
