You must create environment variables for use in later configuration steps.

You cannot configure your system to use both the Classic and Streaming Java™ APIs. You must choose only one.

To set the WebSphere® variables:
  1. In the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console, go to Environment -> WebSphere Variables.
  2. Use the drop-down list to set the scope. Select the node that contains the server that you are using.
  3. Click New.
  4. The New page opens.
  5. If you are using the Classic API:
    1. In the Name field, type LFS_API_DIR.
    2. In the Value field, type the folder in which you installed the API files.
    3. For example: C:\Program Files\IBM\Forms Server\4.0\API\redist\Win32\
    4. Add a description then click OK, then click Save.
    5. Repeat the above steps to create an environment variable called LFS_API_LIB_DIR and point it to the folder that contains the API libraries.
    6. For example, ${LFS_API_DIR}\PureEdge\80\java\classes
  6. If you are using the Streaming API:
  7. Note: You cannot configure your system to use both the Classic and Streaming Java APIs. You must choose only one.
    1. In the Name field, type LFS_API_STREAM_LIB_DIR.
    2. In the Value field, type the folder that contains StreamingAPI.jar.
    3. For example, C:\Program Files\IBM\Forms Server\4.0\API\redist\java
