You need to have administration rights on the system in order to install the BRIDGE.

System Requirements

  • The BRIDGE runs on a 64 bit x86 machine. A minimum of 2 GB RAM is required.
  • The installation of the Bridge needs less than 1 GB of free disk space.
  • The BRIDGE installer needs about 1GB of Java heap space.

Prerequisites

Bridge 7 The BRIDGE installer will check your Bridge license. When updating a BRIDGE to a new version (e.g. BRIDGE 6 to BRIDGE 7), you need to apply the new license before updating the system.

In order to run the BRIDGE installer, you need  a specific Java version:

  • Since Bridge 7.2.0 use Java version 11 or newer.
  • Since Bridge 6.0.52.6 use Java version 8 or newer.
  • Since Bridge 6.0.52.0 use a 64-bit Java to install a 64-bit BRIDGE.

Multiple BRIDGE Installations

Multiple BRIDGE installations on a single system are supported, if the system hosts multiple static IP addresses. For each additional IP address, one BRIDGE can be installed. You can work with such node instances, as you would do with any other single installation.

Licensing

You always need to install a BRIDGE license key. Otherwise, xUML services cannot be started.
BRIDGE license keys are machine-bound. The BRIDGE checks the IP address or the machine name as defined in the license key. xUML services can only be run on the defined server.

License keys can be obtained through your Scheer E2E Sales Manager and online via our support portal.
