Select the solution at the top of the list that is NOT Tomcat and download to your pc

  • Click on it and download the files you find there
  • unzip the .zip file
  • Click on the multiplatform folder
  • Select CA_OM_WEBVIEWER_12_1_Updt.jar to ftp to USS
  • Set the CAOMVW12_HOME variable  (Set it to the install path)
    CAOMVW12_HOME=/usr/CA_OM_Web_Viewer     (for example)
    EXPORT CAOMWV12_HOME
  • Make sure that the Java bin directory is in your PATH environment variable, for example using:

    PATH=/sys/java64bt/v8r0m0/usr/lpp/java/J8.0/bin
    Point to the directory, where the .jar file was uploaded to, and run the following Java command to

  • start the update

    java -jar CA_OM_WEBVIEWER_12_1_Updt.jar

  • Alternatively:
    java -Dlax.nl.env.iatempdir=/u/v012345/tmp -jar CA_OM_WEBVIEWER_12_1_Updt.jar

    where /u/v012345/tmp is your new tmp folder with at least 150 meg of space.

    Do this even though you believe you have enough space in your current /tmp folder.

    To find the latest Tomcat, scroll down the list until you find Tomcat and download to your pc
  • Click on it and download the files you find there
  • unzip the .zip file
  • Click on the multiplatform folder
  • Select CA_OM_WEBVIEWER_12_1_Tomcat.jar to ftp to USS
  • Very important follow the instructions in the special instructions, they are different from applying regular maintenance

Additional Information

The Tomcat server.xml file is in ASCII

You can edit a file in ASCII mode using one of the following methods:

Use a third-party utility that allows direct editing of ASCII files from USS.

Edit the ASCII file locally with a text editor:
a. Download the file to your computer using FTP in binary mode, so that the encoding is not changed during the transfer.
b. Edit the file on your computer with a text editor.
c. Upload the file back in binary using FTP.

Edit the ASCII file with the ISPF UI Tool within USS:                                                                                                                                                                                                          
a. Select UTILITIES from the ISPF primary option menu. The Utility Selection Panel opens.
b. Select Udlist. The z/OS UNIX Directory List Utility opens.
c. Type the pathname, then use normal USS commands to step down the path to the required directory.
d. Make yourself a superuser and enter the EA command on the appropriate file. The file is in a readable form, and you can update it.
