In order to help me better understand what I don’t know and to fix in
context the questions I have about the OSEE installation process, I have
annotated some of the information referenced in this newsgroup.
The starting point for this path starts at:
[artifact 1]

For those interested in getting OSEE up and running, we have posted our
tutorial slides from EcipseCon 2009 that brought attendees from eclipse
installation all the way through deploying OSEE with artifact/relation
types configuration and ATS configuration.

This presentation uses a fictitious company "T. Rex" as an example of how
to migrate and use OSEE. des.pdf

Before we begin…
This is an interactive session: feel free to ask questions
Tell us about yourself
Background Info
Operating Systems
Tutorial based on OSEE 0.7.0
The tutorial materials are available at
[artifact 3]
From artifact 2, page 4

System Requirements (non-eclipse)
System with at least 1GB of RAM
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.6 or higher
Microsoft Office (For Demo Only)
Eclipse Dependencies
Eclipse 3.4.2 SDK
The easiest solution is the Ganymede Eclipse install
Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers gy/epp/downloads/release/ganymede/SR2/eclipse-reporting-gany

Run the PostgreSql installer, located under the “PostgreSql” folder, for
your OS using the following settings
? Where is this PostgreSql folder?
Default install path
Default data directory
Password “Postgre1”
? The other guides say to use “osee” as the password. Please confirm.
I have tried both “osee” and “Postrge1” and get the same log output..
? Is this the password for the default “postrges” database or for the
new “OSEE” database?
Port 5432
Default Locale
On last screen uncheck “Launch Stack Builder”
? I will be using PostgreSQL for Trac which requires the JDBC stack.
Will they interfere with the Eclipse function?
Setup database accounts and schemas by executing the bash/bat script for
your OS located under the “PostgreSql” folder
? Where is this PostgreSql folder where I can find these scripts?
Save db password using pgadmin
? What does this mean? Which role is this for, osee or postgres or
other? The password guide above says to use “Postgre1” as the password.
osee_db_setup.bat – Windows – Others
For more information or for the files mentioned above visit resql_install.php
? The files listed above are not addressed in the above link. Where
can I find them?
? The above link to the postgresql_install describes creating the osee
user, OSEE db, and osee schema. Is it the intent to have these action
done at this point?
From artifact 2, page 6

Installation - continued
Ensure the JRE 1.6 is in the path by typing java – version at a command
OSEE Client
Extract the Eclipse base zip for your OS located under “Eclipse Base” to
a short path and then launch eclipse
? Is the Eclipse base addressed here the same as described above as
“” [artifact 4]?
From the Eclipse update manager, install the update sites located under
? What sites should be under OseeClient? There are only two files and
they contain commands to run Eclipse for launching and DB initialization.
! Per:
! From:
[artifact 5]
! Per:
! from
[artifact 6]

? What is are the steps to “install the update sites? Is this the
extract each file contents to a separate temporary folder
From Eclipse, navigate to Help | Software Updates, select the
tab “Available Software”, select “Add Site”, select “Local”, navigate to
the temporary folder and select it.
Check the upper most box so all child boxes will be checked and
then select the “Install” button.
Then remove the temporary folder?

Launch Application Server
Execute the launch script for your OS located under
osee_app_server.bat – Windows – Others
! This is from:
[artifact 3]
? Does the line from this command file needs to lineup with the
current version:
! Command: -jar
osee_app_server/platform/org.eclipse.osgi_3.4.2.R34x_v200808 26-1230.jar
? Where does this file come from? I cannot find it and the
osee_app_server fails.
? There is a similar file in the zip at:
[artifact 7]
? Is this the correct source? This source has not been mentioned in
this tutorial.
? It seems to be an older version, it is

Wait until the server finishes the start up procedure
Do not close the console
Database Initialization
In a command prompt change to the eclipse install dir
eclipsec -application org.eclipse.osee.framework.database.configClient
-vmargs -Xmx512m
-Dosee.log.default=INFO -Dosee.application.server=http://localhost:8089
-Dosee.authentication.protocol=trustAll -Dosee.prompt.on.db.init=false
-Dosee.choice.on.db.init="OSEE Demo Database"
? Where does this database come from?

Once db init completes, type exit in the server console

I would like to go further on with this review of the tutorial material,
but at this point, without the demo database, nothing else works.

I am happy to do all I can to better understand how to install OSEE and
use it, and help others do the same. Please help me resolve how to do
