This article describes how to apply fixes to a webMethods platform by using the Update Manager in console option. The same principle to applie when updating a single component such as Integration Server, Broker, MWS ...

Update of the webMethods platform


To update webMethods components, the following elements must be prepared:

  • Software AG Update Manager installed
  • Image of webMethods fixes downloaded

Elements to be prepared

First, the Integration Server must be started and My webMethods Server must be stopped:

/<softwareag_home>/MWS/server/default/bin> ./

Then prepare the following items:



Product directory (full path)

The full path of the product installation folder

Image file name (full path)

The full path of the file from which the installation will proceed. The image path must not contain spaces.

Script file name (full path)

If the option to generate an install script is chosen, specify the full path of the script to generate.


Installing Fixes Using GUI

As stated in the prerequisite paragraph, the download of the fixed files is done using the Software AG Update Manager module. (The installation information can be found in the installation document of the development environment).

Launch the Update Manager from the Start menu
