Preparing for Installation

In release 9.0, all iWD components operate as standalone components.


Software Environment

  • From release 9.0.2, iWD requires:
    • Java 8. Java 6 and 7 are no longer supported.
    • Eclipse in order to use the Composer version of the iWD BP.
  • For the new iWD Manager user interface, these are the minimum browser requirements (Genesys strongly recommends latest versions at all times):
    • Google Chrome (40+)
    • Mozilla Firefox (52+)
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11+
    • Apple Safari 9+
  • For production deployments, install the Genesys Rules System web applications on a separate instance of the application server.
  • A supported database server must be installed, with the database created and accessible for both the iWD Data Mart and the iWD History Node database.
  • The following are required:
  • Microsoft C++ Redistributable 2010 package is required for iWD Runtime Node to start correctly.
Refer to the iWD page in the Genesys Supported Operating Environment Reference Manual for supported platforms and database servers.

Genesys Components (minimum)

  • Management Framework—8.5.1
  • Interaction Server—8.5.110
  • Universal Routing Server—8.1.400
  • Orchestration Server—8.1.400.48
  • Universal Contact Server—8.5.200
  • Genesys Rules Engine—8.5.302
  • Genesys Rules Authoring Tool—8.5.302
  • GAX:
    • for releases of iWD GAX Plug-in up to and including
    • for releases of iWD GAX Plug-in from onwards.
    Please see the release note Known Issues topic.
  • Stat Server 8.5.107
  • Pulse 8.5.0

Support for RHEL 64-bit Platforms

Installers support installation of Red Hat Linux 64-bit platforms only when RHEL standard compatibility packs for 32-bit platforms have been installed. These packages have generic names like:

  • compat-glibc*
  • compat-libstdc++*
  • libstdc++* '

You might also need to ensure that the JAVA_HOME variable points to the correct JDK.


This DVD contains the following components:

  • iWD Runtime Node—Runs scheduled iWD Data Mart services.
  • iWD Manager—A graphical user interface (GUI). iWD Manager is used for real-time management of tasks.
  • iWD History Node—Reporting data source for iWD Data Mart and iWD Manager .
  • iWD GAX Plugin—Business configuration of the iWD solution.
  • iWD Stat Extensions—Stat Server Java Extensions that provide Stat Server clients, such as CCPulse+, the ability to request and display current-day statistics from iWD’s Data Mart.
  • iWD Web—A web-based, easy-to-deploy workload management solution.
For production deployments, install the iWD web applications and the Genesys Rules System web applications as separate application server instances, for improved scalability and memory management.

Installing as Standalone Application

On Windows

To deploy on Windows, find the following files:

  • JavaServerStarter.exe—This is the executable binary that is used in Windows service definition and is used to launch the application defined in the JavaServerStarter.ini file.
  • JavaServerStarter.ini—This is a configuration file that allows you to define the application and its starting options. Because iWD depends on Java you can define Java options here. For example;
AppTitle="Genesys iWD Data Mart"




On UNIX there are no JavaServerStarter files. The application uses a regular script, for example; iwd_runtime.sh, where Java with its optional arguments is explicitly called. Then you can simply use the following example:

JAVA_JRE -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -Xms256M -Xmx1536M -host Configuration Server Host -port Configuration Server Port -app Application_Name
On 64-bit platforms, you can define more than 1.5GB for the Xmx parameter. For example, Genesys recommends 12GB for the Runtime Node application.
