CA Business Intelligence JasperReports Server 6.4.2 provides installation through three different options as listed. Upgrade from previous 6x versions of CA Business Intelligence is also supported through GUI and silent installation only. The following types of installation are as follows:
  • This installation method is supported for new installations only and on the OS types and versions presented in the chart. In addition to presenting an intuitive GUI-based install experience, this method provides the option to install bundled versions of Apache Tomcat and a database (PostgreSQL), components required by CA Business Intelligence. While the GUI installer bundles particular versions of Apache Tomcat and PostgreSQL, it is also flexible in its allowance for reference an existing preferred database (Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL) or an existing preferred version of Tomcat (7 or 8).
  • The silent installation is accomplished through executing a script that references a 
    .properties file
     containing all necessary information that is required to install CA Business Intelligence (ex. Tomcat location, database connection info, etc.). The 
    .properties
     file is configured by the enduser. As opposed to the GUI installer, you must provide an existing installed Apache Tomcat instance and an existing supported database. Refer to the prerequisites section for more information about preparing for a silent installation.
