Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1024040
Change Installer Flow to Improve Useability
Last modified: 2014-02-06 10:31:29 EST
Description of problem:
The order in which the Installer panel flows should be changed to reflect suggestions on improving useability from the UX meeting on Oct 22nd.
Suggested Order of Panels (after License is displayed):
1) Pack Selection
2) Target Path Selection
3) "post-install" configuration selection
- Optionally followed by selected post-install elements
4) Admin User Creation
- Optionally followed by user account creation for any needed extra accounts: BPEL user account, Governance Credentials, etc.
5) DB Configuration Panel
6) Installation Panel
7) Post-installation/Configuration Processing
9) Finish Panel
Installer flow has been restructured according to UX suggestions:
Due to limitations in IZpack design, having the pack selection panel right at the very beginning causes complications with installation of EAP pack. EAP will get installed regardless of whether it already exists or not in the target directory. Will need to modify IZpack to allow changing packs after selection panel is run.
Francisco - can you set the severity value for this bugzilla? Thanks!
These changes have been implemented, as well as modified again as per further discussion. The ER7-2 installer contains the final implementation of these suggestions. Any further modifications should be discussed here.
Verified in ER8.
