TIBCO configuration

The TIBCO configuration depends on which of the two following distinct testing environments is in use: Testing with TIBCO Designer or Testing Against a Deployed BW Engine.

TIBCO Designer

When you are testing with TIBCO Designer, which starts a BW engine internally, create or edit properties.cfg and place it in the top level of the Designer installation (for example, C:\tibco\designer\5.6). Alternatively, you can create the file in a different location and refer to it. See "Setting Custom Engine Properties for the Testing Environment" in your TIBCO BusinessWorks documentation for more details.

The content of a sample file is shown:

Trace.Task.*=true
Trace.Info.Publish=true
Trace.Warn.Publish=true
Trace.Error.Publish=true
Trace.Debug.Publish=true

Trace.Info.Publish.Subject=<mysubjectpart>.Info
Trace.Warn.Publish.Subject=<mysubjectpart>.Warn
Trace.Error.Publish.Subject=<mysubjectpart>.Error
Trace.Debug.Publish.Subject=<mysubjectpart>.Debug

You might find that 'Trace.Task.*=false' is present in the TRA file. If so, it must be commented out or set to true.

Typically you would set <mysubjectpart> to be the machine name, but the full subject can be anything valid for Rendezvous if it matches the HCL OneTest™ API configuration.

Test against a deployed BW engine

The tracing configuration that is shown (in TIBCO Designer) must be added to the deployed BW TRA, and the BW engine must be restarted. On Windows, this file might typically be found in the following location:

C:\tibco\tra\domain\MYDOMAIN\application\hotair\hotair_archive.tra

Trace messages are sent on the BW default RV transport, but it is possible to specify alternate Rendezvous transport settings, as illustrated:

Trace.Info.Publish.Service=7878
Trace.Info.Publish.Network=eth0;239.1.1.1
Trace.Info.Publish.Daemon=tcp:myserver:7575
Trace.Warn.Publish.Service=7878
Trace.Warn.Publish.Network=eth0;239.1.1.1
Trace.Warn.Publish.Daemon=tcp:myserver:7575
Trace.Error.Publish.Service=7878
Trace.Error.Publish.Network=eth0;239.1.1.1
Trace.Error.Publish.Daemon=tcp:myserver:7575
Trace.Debug.Publish.Service=7878
Trace.Debug.Publish.Network=eth0;239.1.1.1
Trace.Debug.Publish.Daemon=tcp:myserver:7575
Note: Manual changes to the BW TRA file are lost if the project is redeployed. It is possible to configure TIBCO Administrator to include these engine properties on each deployment by editing bwengine.xml. Refer to "Setting Custom Engine Properties in Deployed Projects" in your TIBCO BusinessWorks documentation for more details.
