TIBCO fiddles

In brief:
  1. When fiddling with TIBCO Software, use an OpenSUSE virtual machine, it hurts less.
  2. Oracle XE is very handy for fiddling with TIBCO software - Here's a great web page explaining how to set it up on OpenSUSE -
  3. Give your VM about 2GB RAM, or more.
  4. Create a different Unix user for each 'build' (ActiveMatrix v2 suite, ActiveMatrix v3 suite, BusinessWorks/Administrator suite, etc.). Don't let them read/write to each other's files, ever.
  5. Do not install gcj, OpenJDK, or anything remotely like Java and not made by Sun and/or Oracle.
