  • You can start it like any other web application, from tomcat. ‘Oerm’ is the application name.

  • Copy the oerm.war (@$DLC/servlets/rest/) to webapps folder of your tomcat and start it. It will be up and running.

  • More detailed information can be found in chapter 9 of the OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer: Configuration manual. The OpenEdge 11.3 documentation can be found here.

  • Hi smunigal,

    We have tried that already and it still wont start.

  • Should this be done on both client-side and server-side? I have tried copying oerm.war and restart the server, but that didn’t help.

    Please see oerm.log file, if it has any errors?

  • Can you check for the error messages in catalina.log / catalina.out files
     
    Are you able to see oerm.log  file (@webapps/oerm/WEB-INF/oerm.data/oerm.log)?
     
    If yes, does it show any error?

  • I dont see any errors, does that mean it should be working? How do we check that the rest manager is working correctly?

  •  
    8080 is your tomcat port.

  • It says that its running but we still can't connect. Any other ideas?

  • Can’t connect means? How are you trying to connect to it?
     
    Are you trying to connect to it using restman command? Or OEM? any error that you see while connecting?

  • The application wont connect with OE explorer because the explorer is not functioning correctly. Would we still need to do a restman deploy for it to work correctly?

  • Yes, you can use restman command to access REST Manager to work with it.
     
    To do so, you have add an entry in ubroker.properties file as below:
     
    [REST.restmgr1]
        restUrl=http://<hostname>:<tomcat-port>/oerm
     
    Restart the AdminServer and open proenv, execute the following command to query the REST Mgr:
     
    restman –i restmgr1 –q
     
    For more commands, please execute the help:
     
    restman –h

  • We have done the above and it says that there are no deployed services. how would we deploy a service manually using restman?

  • Hi meyrick,

    Please use following command to deploy a WAR file using restman utility.

    restman -i restmgr1 -war <war file location> -deploy

    Ex: proenv>restman -i restmgr1 -war C:\qa\OE_Exports\OEProj.war -deploy

    Once the deploy process is successful please check for the availability of the application in webapps directory under $DLC location ($DLC\\servers\tomcat\webapps)

    Thanks and Regards,
