VP Team Server Clarifications

Product(s): Visual Paradigm Modeler Standard Edition & Team Server

Could you please clarify on the below?

  1. What are the Operationg Systems (both Windows & LInux) supported by the licensed version?

  2. What are the MS SQL Server versions supported by Team Server? Is SQL Server 2017 supported?

  3. We assume that Team Server requires a Servlet Engine (ex. Tomcat). Could you please list down the web/app servers supported? Is IIS supported?

  4. We are currently using embdded database for the UML repositories. We would like to know if external databases (ex. MS SQL Server) are more reliable than embedded database.

  5. We assume all UML modelers perform the Team Server related activities directly from IDE. Are there any use cases where either UML Modelers or Administrators requires direct access to the underlying database.

Let us know.
Thanks & Regards

Thank you for your inquiry and for your questions:

What are the MS SQL Server versions supported by Team Server? Is SQL Server 2017 supported?

Yes we support SQL Server 2017.

We assume that Team Server requires a Servlet Engine (ex. Tomcat). Could you please list down the web/app servers supported? Is IIS supported?

The default installation package of VP Server already with Tomcat bundled. Custom deployment can done on standard tomcat. At the moment we not support running Teamwork Server on IIS.

We are currently using embdded database for the UML repositories. We would like to know if external databases (ex. MS SQL Server) are more reliable than embedded database.

External DB do provide more stability when compare with the embedded DB, especially on transaction handling. This will be more safe to data in case there are any issue causing Teamwork Server unexpectedly shutdown (i.e. power supply issue). This is why setup of Teamwork Server default will suggest use to use external DB.

We assume all UML modelers perform the Team Server related activities directly from IDE. Are there any use cases where either UML Modelers or Administrators requires direct access to the underlying database.

We not require user directly access to the repository for accessing the data. That should be done via the VP applications.

Feel free to contact me for any questions.
