The Central Migration Bridge service helps you to migrate existing
applications from your Adobe Central Pro Output Server or Adobe
Web Output Pak products to work with the Output service. The Central
Migration Bridge service allows you to use your current IFD/MDF
templates, data transformation scripts, and DAT files in a AEM forms
on JEE environment as part of an overall migration strategy.
The Central Migration Bridge is useful only
if you have existing Central Pro applications to migrate.
Authorized use of Central Migration Bridge
To use the Central Migration
Bridge service, you must have a valid license for Central Pro Output
Server 5.7 or an executed Central Pro Output Server 5.7 migration
agreement. To install Central Pro Output Server 5.7, use your existing media
and existing product authorization code (PAC). Your PAC is for a
specific operating system platform; if this differs from the operating
system platform on which you are installing AEM forms on JEE, you
will need to acquire a PAC for that operating system. Contact your
Adobe representative for more information regarding migration, or
acquiring Central Pro Output Server 5.7 media or PAC.
The Central Migration Bridge service interacts
directly with the Central Pro (version 5.7) executable files. You
must have Central Pro installed on the same server as AEM forms
on JEE, but it is not a prerequisite to installing AEM forms on JEE
(that is, it can be installed before or after AEM forms on JEE).
Consult the Central Pro documentation set for installation instructions.
Do not start Central Pro or change its properties
to run automatically.
On Windows, the Central Pro service
Adobe Central Output Server
installed as a manual service. Do not run the service or change
its properties to run automatically.
On AIX, Linux, or Solaris,
do not start the Central Pro daemon
. If you edited
the start-up script of your computer to launch jfdaemon when restarting the
computer, change the script to prevent the daemon from being launched automatically.
(See the Central Pro installation documentation.) Do not start Central
from the command line by launching the jfserver process.
The AEM forms on JEE User that invokes the Central
Migration Bridge service must have access rights to the Central
Pro install directory as well as execute permissions on the Central
Pro executable files.
AEM forms on JEE turnkey installations
If you are installing
and configuring a AEM forms on JEE turnkey environment using Express
mode, the Central Migration Bridge service will be installed and configured
by default - you will not be prompted for any input.
Ensure that the Adobe Central Pro product is installed
in the default directory.
AEM forms on JEE custom installations
If you are installing
and configuring AEM forms on JEE using the Custom mode (Partial
turnkey or Manual), Configuration Manager will prompt you to include Central
Migration Bridge in the deployment.
By default, the service
will use the default Central Pro installation path. If Central Pro
is installed in a different location, update the [Central Install
Dir] configuration for the Central Migration Bridge Service by going
to administration console.
In a clustered environment,
you must install Central Pro on each node of the cluster.
you have finished installing AEM forms on JEE, if Central Pro is
not installed in the default location, do the following steps to
point AEM forms on JEE to the correct directory:
in to administration console.
Services > Applications and Services > Service Management
Central Migration Bridge:1.0
Type the correct path to the Central Pro install directory.
configuration can also be made in Workbench. See Creating and managing
processes in Workbench documentation.
