Question:

Is it possible to add my custom jar files to the CA PPM server?

 

 

Answer:

Please note that adding any custom jar files is completely unsupported in all CA Clarity PPM versions.

More specifically, adding any jar files to $clarityppm/lib directory is strongly discouraged, this is making the environment unsupported, and has the potential to cause impacting issues to your server. $clarityppm/lib directory should contain CA PPM jars only.

Same is valid for all other CA PPM folders, such as $clarityppm/customlib, i.e.

Our recommendations:
All custom jar files should be placed outside of CA PPM folder.

Please also note that any code that executes inside CA PPM JVM is unsupported.
