WCS V7 Feature Pack 2 Upgrade

Posted by Hariharan Vadivelu on
I was trying to install WebSphere Commerce Developer Feature Pack 2 with Installation Manager, but I was running into following error:
Package IBM WebSphere Commerce Developer Feature Pack 2.0.0.0 and Rational Application developer for Websphere software 7.5.5.1 cannot coexist in the same package group.

After days of struggle, I finally got enlightened after reading through following link and realized the linkage between fix pack and feature pack upgrades.

In summary, the dependency for WCS V7 feature pack upgrades on V7 Fix Packs is as follows.
V7 feature pack 2 -> Dependent on V7 fix pack 2
V7 feature pack 3 -> Dependent on V7 fix pack 3
V7 feature pack 4 -> Dependent on V7 fix pack 5

Please do ensure you are at the right fix pack level before upgrading to a feature pack.

Sequence of Installation using Installation Manager for upgrading to V7 Feature Pack 2:
1. RAD 7.5.4
2. RAD 7.5.5
3. RAD 7.5.5.1 (Not a mandatory step, you can directly upgrade RAD to any level above 7.5.5)
4. WAS Test 7.0
5. WAS Test 7.0.0.17 (Any level at / above 7.0.0.11 should be fine)
6. WCS V7 toolkit V7.0.0.0
7. WCS V7 Fix Pack 2 (WCS V7 fixpack enables support for V7 feature pack2, hence it is mandatory to upgrade to fix pack 2 before upgrading to feature pack 2.)
8. WCS V7 Feature Pack 2

  2. com.ibm.commerce.toolkit.internal.feature.enablement.AddModuleTask class is part of the ToolkitFeature.jar under location \SDP\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi\bundles\110\1\.cp. Inspect your version of ToolkitFeature.jar and see if it has logic to handle modulefile attribute. I am having 7.5.5.4 and my ToolkitFeature.jar has the required logic to handle modulefile attribute.
