Using Verifone RiTA software with IBM WAS

If you are running the RiTA software by Verifone, you may encounter a number of issues configuring the software to work in an IBM WebSphere environment. There are two issues you want to avoid:

  • Not being able to find the tid.jcc file
  • Not having the .jar files in the correct location

First, the tid.jcc needs to be in the default server directory for IBM WAS. On Linux, this will most likely be theĀ /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01 directory.

To add the tid.jcc reference, you will want to link it from your RiTA installation directory (the default directory being /opt/rita). Run these commands:

>cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01
>ln -s /opt/rita/tid.jcc

Next, you will need to link all of the RiTA .jar files to your extensions directory in the Java Runtime Engine. Run these commands:

>cd /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/java/jre/lib/ext
>find /opt/rita/lib/rita -name ‘*.jar’ -exec ln -s {} \;

You will now have symbolic links to all of the RiTA .jar files and it will be accessible to WebSphere and all other Java applications.
