How to install RTC client on top of Eclipse ?

Hello,I'm using Open Client RHat 6.4 on my laptop. I was using RTC as a standalone program before with no issues. Now I wanted to install RTC on top of the existing eclipse but it failed all the time. I tried various combinations of eclipse editions and RTC but it always fails ( I am using Installation Manager ) on a page when it checks for plug-in dependencies. I tried to install those plug-ins using local or remote ... but it always failed. In my case I'd like to have RTC 4.0.3.
My question: does anyone have success to install RTC on top of eclipse on Open Client? If someone succeeded ... could you point me to release of eclipse you used or some other tricks you did for it?
P.S. I found this topic https://jazz.net/help-dev/clm/topic/com.ibm.jazz.install.doc/topics/t_client_installation_p2.html which states that it should work. I followed all the steps i.e. installed eclipse 4.3.0 , downloaded RTC-Client-p2Repo-4.0.3RC1.zip but the problem now is with installing that .zip. I've got the error:

Do you have any clue how to fix that ZipException thing?

Try unzipping the file then when you add new repository choose local and point to the directory that contains the contents.xml file.

thanks everyone for help and advices. Finally I'm all set. Eventually my problem was with corrupted p2 RTC-Client file. I installed Download Manager, downloaded .zip using it and was able to install RTC 4.0.3 on top of Eclipse 4.3
I acknowledge that this combination might be not tested and/or supported but for my needs it works fine.
