Default Directory Change for WebSphere Integration Developer/Process Server/ESB in V7

Updated 2010-01-25: Typo corrected.

I’ve just been experimenting with WebSphere Integration Developer (WID) v7. If you’re working with this new release, you might like to know that the default directories for the WID WTE (WebSphere Test Environment, also called ITE or UTE in some places) has changed.

By default (on Windows), WID is now installed in C:\Program Files\IBM\WID7. However, the WTE runtime (and its associated profiles) can now be found in a separate hierarchy instead – C:\Program Files\IBM\WID7_WTE. If you are using WebSphere Process Server or WebSphere ESB, the runtime that’ll interest you is in C:\Program Files\IBM\WID7_WTE\runtimes\bi_v7. The profiles can be found under there, in subdirectories called qesb and/or qwps. This is different from in previous versions of these products, where the profiles were in a separate directory structure from the runtime. Note that as always, there are separate profiles for WebSphere ESB and WebSphere Process Server, even though the underlying runtime is the same – and technically WebSphere Process Server – in both cases. This is possible because WebSphere Process Server is a functionality superset of WebSphere ESB.

  1. Andrew,

    “There are separate profiles for WebSphere ESB and WebSphere Process Server, even though the underlying runtime is the same – and technically WebSphere Process Server – in both cases. This is possible because WebSphere ESB is a functionality superset of WebSphere Process Server.”

    You probably wanted to say the reverse – WPS is a functionality superset of WESB.

    Also why is the profile name prefixed with a “q”? It is a “q”uestionable prefix?

  2. You are quite correct – I got that the wrong way round! Thanks for spotting it.

    Honestly, I’m not sure why the name has a “q”.
