Comment: Jetty Base path corrected

  • Step 2 - Licensing Agreement

    • The License Agreement shown in Step 2 of the installation has to be accepted before installation can take place.



  • Step 3 - Target Path for the Installation

    • The path to the installation directory for the JOC Cockpit program files - referred to later in this page as the joc_installation_directory - is set in this step.
    • The default installation paths for the JOC Cockpit are:

      • /opt/sos-berlin.com/joc on Linux systems and

      • C:\Program Files\sos-berlin.com\joc on Windows.
    • Users can use the Step 3 installation form shown below to specify their own installation path for the JOC Cockpit if required.

    Step 4 - Jetty Installation & Configuration

    • The JOC Cockpit requires a Java-capable web server and comes with a Jetty server. Step 4 allows system administrators to specify whether this web server is to be installed and if so, to specify its configuration - i.e. the port(s) it uses, installation path, memory pool, etc..
    • The Install JOC ... including Jetty checkbox specifies whether the Jetty web server should be installed.
    • While the Jetty web server delivered with the JOC Cockpit is installed in the joc_installation_directory - the Jetty configuration files are installed alongside the JOC Cockpit log and configuration files in the jetty_base directory. The Jetty Base field in the form shown in the screenshot can be used to set the jetty_base directory.
      The default paths to the jetty_base directory are:
      • /homevar/[user]log/sos-berlin.com/joc on Linux systems and

      • C:\ProgramData\sos-berlin.com\joc on Windows.

    • Note that if If the Jetty delivered with the JOC Cockpit is not to be installed and either an alternative Jetty installation or another web server is to be used, then relevant configuration files for such a server such as the shiro.ini and joc.properties files will still be written to the file system. These files can then be moved by the system administrator to the suitable location for their web server as required. See the Configuration with Alternative Web Servers section below for more information.
  • Step 5 - Specify the Reporting DBMS

    • Choose the DBMS to be used by the JOC Cockpit for the Reporting Database.




  • Step 6 - Configure the Reporting Database Connection

    • Specify the parameters for the connection to the Reporting Database. 

    • It will be probably be obvious from the names given to the parameters in the screenshot above that the values are for a database to be used by the JobScheduler. In this case the Reporting Database Tables will be integrated in the JobScheduler Database. This will be described in the next step.

    • The database configuration for the JOC Cockpit is written to an XML file during installation and saved in the jetty_base/resources/joc folder.
      The default name of the database configuration file is:

      • reporting.hibernate.cfg.xml

      This file can be modified at a later date if required using a text editor. The JOC Cockpit service will then have to be restarted before changes made to this file are implemented.

    • The name and location of the database configuration file itself is specified in the joc.properties file, which can also be found in the jetty_base/resources/joc folder.
       

  • Step 7 - Specify the Database Connection Used by the JobScheduler

    • Specify whether a separate connection it to be specified for the JobScheduler Database 

    • If the JobScheduler(s) and JOC Cockpit share the same database then clicking Next will cause the Installation to proceed to Step 10. This step starts the installation process itself and changes to the configuration are no longer possible.  
    • If the JobScheduler(s) and JOC Cockpit use separate databases then the checkbox in the form should be deselected. In this case, clicking Next will cause the Installation to proceed to the specification of the DBMS and the connection parameters for the JobScheduler database, which are described next.
       
  • Step 8 - Specify the JobScheduler DBMS

    • This form is identical to those already shown for the Reporting Database in Steps 5 above.
       
  • Step 9 - Configure the JobScheduler Database Connection

    • Specify the parameters for the connection to the JobScheduler Database.

      • The DBMS type can be found in the database configuration for job history section of the $JOBSCHEDULER_DATA/factory.ini file of one of the JobSchedulers to be operated from the JOC Cockpit, where $JOBSCHEDULER_DATA is defined in the JobScheduler Master Installation - 2 - Dialog Installation article.
    • The database configuration for the JOC Cockpit is written to an XML file during installation and saved in the jetty_base/resources/joc folder.
      The default name of the database configuration file is:
      • jobscheduler.hibernate.cfg.xml
    • This file can be modified at a later date if required using a text editor. A JOC Cockpit user will then have to log in again before changes made to this file are implemented.

    • The name and location of the database configuration file itself is specified in the joc.properties file, which can also be found in the jetty_base/resources/joc folder.




  • Step 10 - Processing the Installation

    • This step shows the progress of the first part of the installation procedure.

    • Changes to the installation configuration can no longer be made once this step has started.
      Instead configuration files such as those in the jetty_base/resources/joc folder can modified manually and then the JOC Cockpit restarted.


  • Step 11 - External Processes

    • This step shows the progress of the second part of the installation procedure.

    • The information shown in this step will be written to the installation log file, which can be found in the jetty_base/logs folder

  • Step 12 - Completion

    • The last step of the installation shows a summary of the installation (success/error) and paths to relevant information.

    • Note that if a problem occurs during installation a warning message will be shown here and a link to the installation log file will be provided.

  • Operation
