Often during the course of investigation, IBM support will provide a test fix to obtain more information or a patch to resolve defects until the solution is incorporated into the next release. How do administrators apply these test fixes and patches?
Many patches are in the form of JAR (Java Archive) files, which are Eclipse plug-ins. These plug-ins are located in the following directories depending on your product.
Mashup Center - C:\IBM\Mashup Center\3.0\mm\eclipse\plugins
Business Space - C:\IBM\WebSphere\BusComp\BusinessSpace\mm.runtime\eclipse\plugins
To apply a plug-in patch, perform the following operations.
- Stop the WebSphere server.
- Copy the plug-in JAR provided by IBM support into the plugins directory. (Generally, there should not be a plugin with the same filename. If there is, backup the original file before replacing.)
- From within the AppServer's bin directory for example, C:\IBM\Mashup Center\3.0\AppServer\bin, run the following scripts.
- Start the WebSphere server.
