CA Tuesday Tip: CA WA Agent for IBM i5/OS install

Discussion created by panni04 Employee on Nov 12, 2013
When installing the agent in i5/OS (AS/400), please make sure you have installed the correct JRE.  The agent uses 32-bit JRE and it can be downloaded from IBM Java website.  The system must have J2SE 5.0 32-bit or higher installed.  Before installing the agent, export the JAVA_HOME in PASE terminal.
export JAVA_HOME=/QIBM/ProdData/Java400/jdk15
Note:  Actual path may vary, verify the exact JRE path.  Path and filenames are case-sensitive.
Next to make sure the Java is working correctly, run the following command:
java -version
If the output shows version information, then Java command is working correctly.  Run the setup as follows:
java -jar setup.jar
In some cases, users may see the following error when trying to run the setup.
Excpetion in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: -jar
Caused by java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: -jar
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass( 
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
This error signifies that java was unable to find the setup.jar.  In that case provide the full or absolute path to the setup.jar.  
java -jar /tmp/setup.jar
