Installation Guide

Before You Begin

Before you begin the installation, review the following steps:

1

2

Locate your license number for JProbe. If you downloaded the software from the

Quest Software web site, the license number was mailed to the email address you specified. If you received a product CD, the license number is on the product packaging.

Ensure that you can run use cases/test cases on your application without JProbe installed. JProbe can help you diagnose programming inefficiencies, but it cannot help with issues related to how your application or application server is set up within your environment.

3

4

Review the hardware and software requirements for your operating system. For more information, see “ Supported Platforms ” on page 15.

Note

You may need to install a supported Java Virtual Machine.

You are now ready to install JProbe.

Uninstall JProbe

Where to Install JProbe

Start by running the installer on the computer where your application resides. Both the

JProbe Engine and JProbe Console are installed. If you are running only local sessions, you are done.

If you want to run your application and the JProbe Analysis Engine on one computer and monitor it from another computer (for example, your workstation), you also need to install JProbe on the second computer. The second computer does not have to run the same operating system as the first. In fact, many remote sessions are heterogeneous, with the application under analysis running on a UNIX system while the JProbe

Console runs on Windows. You can choose to use the JProbe Console from either computer, though not simultaneously.

Installing JProbe Using the GUI Installer

You can run the GUI version of the installer on Windows or UNIX systems, as long as you have a graphical display available. After you start the installer, follow the on-screen instructions. You can add your license at the end of the installation or you can wait until you launch JProbe for the first time.

On Windows platforms, if autorun is enabled for the CD-ROM drive, the setup program runs automatically. Otherwise, open the CD, browse to your platform, and then double-click the installer.

• If you downloaded the product from the Quest Software web site, navigate to the directory where you saved the downloaded file and double-click the installer file.
