AIX

AIX users need to complete the following additional steps after installing OTM/GTM 6.3:

  1. Go to the http://jaxp.java.net in a Web Browser.
  2. Download JAXP 1.4.6
  3. Run the jar file. Type: java -jar JAXP_146.jar
  4. Grab the jaxp-ri.jar file from the lib directory and copy to to the <otm_install_dir>/glog/gc3webapp/WEB-INF/lib/3rdparty
  5. Modify the <otm_install_dir>/tomcat/bin/tomcat.conf and add the following line:

Prior to the Oracle Transportation Management 6.3 release there were two installers provided: an "upgrade" installer and a "full"installer. The upgrade installer was used to install the new version of the software on top of an earlier version of the software, whereas the full installer laid down the latest code into a new directory. Either installer allowed for the migration of custom properties from an earlier release.

As of OTM 6.3 there is no longer an upgrade installer provided. Instead, the process of upgrading from a prior version is to lay down new code into a new directory. After downloading the latest 6.3 release, it is necessary to follow the OTM Installation Guide in order to install the software.

The “Upgrading from a Prior Version” section provides details on additional steps necessary when upgrading from a prior version. One important step is to copy any customizations from your previous installation into the new installation. See the “Customizations Migration” section of Installation Guide for specific steps.

After the software has been installed and customizations have been migrated, it is necessary to apply database changes and migrate the database from a previous version.  Please refer to the OTM Migration Guide for specific instructions, depending on the version from which you are migrating.

Installation/Upgrade Notes

Web Services Security Policy Changes

Starting with Oracle Transportation Management version 6.3, web service calls both into and from the application to external services now use the full built-in capabilities of the WebLogic Server. Versions of Oracle Transportation Management prior to version 6.3 supported only a small subset of the Web Service Security v1.1 specification (WSS) and only as an optional feature i.e. the use of a web service security policy was not enforced.

The default configuration for web service security for inbound web service calls has changed and now enforces a policy which requires the use of the WSS Username Token Profile transported over HTTPS. Therefore, if you are using inbound web services on a version prior to 6.3 and wish to retain their current level of security, you will need to take action.  It will be necessary to either modify the service client to conform to this policy or to configure a different default policy. Alternatively, you may choose to fully disable the use of a web service security policy, though for proper security this is not recommended.  Please consult the "Web Service Configuration" section of the OTM Security Guide for more details on web service security policy configuration.
