PDP setup guide for the IBM Industry application platform
Abstract
This document explains how to install and configure the IBM Industry application platform on the IBM Power
Development Platform (PDP). Specifically, it shows you how to install this preconfigured instance of IBM
WebSphere application server (or WebSphere MQ) on an IBM AIX operating-system image for
development, testing and validation purposes.
Introduction
The IBM® Industry application platform is a preconfigured instance of IBM WebSphere® application server,
IBM DB2® and WebSphere MQ that is available for your IBM AIX® 7.1 and AIX® 6.1 operating-system
images on the IBM Power Development Platform (PDP). You can use PDP to develop, test and validate
applications by using these products. After reserving your PDP partition, which includes choosing the
hardware configuration and operating system, install the IBM Industry application platform on that partition.
The IBM Industry application platform contains the following software components:
•
WebSphere application server v7.0.0.13
•
DB2 Workgroup server edition 9.7.3a
•
WebSphere MQ 7.0.1.3
•
IBM Rational® agent controller v8.3
WebSphere application server 7.0.0.13
For WebSphere application server 7.0.0.13, the IBM Industry application platform product configuration
includes the following settings:
Server profile created: A stand-alone WebSphere application server profile has been created and is
started for you during the initialization of the image.
WebSphere Security enabled: WebSphere application server security is enabled, with the virtuser user ID
serving as the WebSphere application server administrator ID. During the initialization of the IBM Industry
application platform, you are required to set the password for the virtuser ID.
Sample Application: WebSphere application server is preconfigured with the “DayTrader” application, a
sample application that uses WebSphere application server, DB2 and WebSphere MQ.
Rational agent controller started: Rational agent controller v8.3 is started to enable remote access to the
WebSphere application server profile in the image. Developers can use Rational application developer v8.0,
Rational application developer v7.5., Rational Software Architect v8.0, or Rational Software Architect v7.5
integrated development environments (IDEs) on their local machines and deploy, test and debug their
WebSphere application server programs on the PDP image. This offloads much of the work from your local
machine and still gives you seamless access to the application server in the PDP image. The IDEs, in concert
with rational agent controller, automatically transports and installs your IDE applications on the application
server that runs in the image whenever you make changes to the applications. You can also test, debug and
profile the application performance from directly inside the IDEs.

DB2 WorkGroup Server Edition 9.7.3a
For DB2 WorkGroup Server Edition 9.7.3a, the IBM Industry application platform product configuration
includes the following settings:
DB2 instance created: An instance with user ID db2inst1 is created for you. During the initialization of the
image, you are required to set the password for the db2inst1 user ID.
DB2 database created: A database named DAYTRADR is created for the DayTrader sample application.
WebSphere MQ 7.0.1.3
Default queue manager created: A queue manager named iap.queue.manager has been created for you
and is started during image initialization.
Queues and topics created: Queues and topics for the DayTrader application are created for you.
Installation
The following section provides details about installing the IBM Industry application platform.
Installation prerequisites
The IBM Industry application platform requires AIX 6.1 or AIX 7.1 with a 64-bit kernel on IBM POWER7™
processor-based hardware. The installation script terminates with an error message if these requirements are
not met.
PDP setup guide for the IBM Industry application platform

Installing the IBM Industry application platform on AIX
Follow the steps listed next to install the IBM Industry application platform on your AIX system. These are
intended as reference only, so you must verify that they are appropriate for your setup:
1. Become root by entering the following command:
$ su–
2. Run the following installation command:
# /stage/middleware/IndustryFrameworks/iap/setup.sh
1
Create a password for virtuser. This user is used to start and stop WebSphere application server
and WebSphere MQ. When prompted by the script, enter a password for the virtuser user and then verify
the password. You need to remember this password so that you can manage WebSphere application
server and WebSphere MQ.
2
Create a password for the DB2 users db2inst1, dasusr1 and db2fenc1. The DB2 instance creates
these users and, for convenience, they are set to the same password that you create.
3
When prompted by the script, enter a password for these users and then verify the password.
Remember this password so that you can connect to DB2 and can perform DB2 System Administration
tasks. The script runs for several minutes. Wait for a completion message, such as the one shown in
Figure 1 before continuing:
.

Verifying the installation
After the installation has been completed, you can access the DayTrader sample application.
DayTrader is an end-to-end Web application that is modeled after an online stock brokerage.
DayTrader uses Java™ 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) components such as servlets, JavaServer
Pages (JSP) files, Java Persistence API (JPA) entities, enterprise beans, message-driven beans (MDBs)
and Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) to provide a set of user services such as login and logout, stock
quotes, buy, sell, account details, and so on through standards-based HTTP and Web-services protocols.
1. To start using DayTrader, access the following URL from your browser:
http://<PDP-image-ip-address>:9080/daytrader
2. Click Configuration, as shown in Figure 2:
Figure 2. Clicking the Configuration tab
PDP setup guide for the IBM Industry application platform

3. Click (Re)-populate DayTrader Database, as shown in Figure 3:
Figure 3. Repopulating the DayTrader database
PDP setup guide for the IBM Industry application platform
5
4. Wait for the confirmation that 200 users were created, as shown in Figure 4:
Figure 4. Waiting for confirmation
5. If you click the Trading & Portfolios tab, you can simulate the trading of stocks. The primitives tab has a
series of operations that you can use as the basis for performance tests and to exercise certain parts of the
applications (for example, message-driven beans). The FAQ tab has general information about running
DayTrader and the configuration tab has various settings that can be changed.

Applying fixes to the embedded products
Information about applying fixes to the various products in the IBM Industry application platform is listed
below.
WebSphere application server v7.0.0.13 can be serviced on the PDP instance of the IBM Industry
application platform just like other native installation of this software. Corrective service packages, such
as interim fixes (which address a particular product issue) or fix packs (which are regular, cumulative
roll-ups of interim fixes into a single installable unit) are available to be downloaded from IBM support for
WebSphere application server v7.0.
From this site, you can search by using problem symptoms and receive information on IBM
Technotes, IBM Redbooks® and fixes that might address your problem.
WebSphere MQ v7.0.1.3 can be serviced on the PDP instance of the IBM Industry application platform
just like other native installation of this software. Corrective service packages, such as interim fixes or fix
packs are available to be downloaded from IBM support for WebSphere MQ v7.0. From this site, you can
search using problem symptoms and receive information on technotes, Redbooks and fixes that might
address your problem.
DB2 Workgroup Server Edition v9.7.3a can be serviced on the PDP instance of the IBM Industry
application platform just like other native installation of this software. Corrective service packages, such
as interim fixes or fix packs are available to be downloaded from IBM support for DB2 Workgroup
Server Edition 9.7.3a. From this site, you can search using problem symptoms and receive information
