Changing the look and Feel of Maximo 7
To apply the new GUI skin globally to all of the applications, perform the following steps:
- At the administrative workstation, go to the following directory:
- Open the webclient.properties file in a text editor.
One of the key-value pairs in the webclient.properties file is the following; the pound sign (#) indicates that the webclient.skin=tivoli09 property is disabled:
- To enable the webclient.skin=tivoli09 property, remove the pound sign (#) at the beginning of the line, and save the webclient.properties file.
- Rebuild and redeploy the Maximo enterprise archive (EAR) file.
You rebuild and redeploy the Maximo EAR file from the IBM® WebSphere® Application Server. For instructions for performing this task, see the "Working with EAR files" section of the IBM Change and Configuration Management 7.1 System Administrator Guide.
After you turn on the webclient.skin=tivoli09 property and rebuild the EAR file, the product GUI will use the new skin. You can turn this property off if you want to revert to the previous skin, or if you install a CCMDB product that does not support the new skin. To do so, open the webclient.properties file, insert a pound sign before the webclient.skin=tivoli09 key-value pair, and rebuild and redeploy the Maximo EAR file.
