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?

Thanks

Just fyi, I used P2 to install RTC 4.0.3 into my Eclipse 4.2.2 successfully but this is on Windows.

Thanks for reply. At this point I didn't get to the problem of compatibility yet but the current problem is with my Open Client issue with java.util.zip.ZipException

Well ... I just thought that .zip file might be corrupted though I downloaded it from jazz.net.
I tried to unzip it and got this error:
[evoldman@voldman-lnx TBD]$ unzip RTC-Client-p2Repo-4.0.3RC1.zip
Archive:  RTC-Client-p2Repo-4.0.3RC1.zip
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of RTC-Client-p2Repo-4.0.3RC1.zip or
        RTC-Client-p2Repo-4.0.3RC1.zip.zip, and cannot find RTC-Client-p2Repo-4.0.3RC1.zip.ZIP, period.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

just to be sure the download is completing, I always make use of a download manager, some tips to successful downloads are available here : https://jazz.net/downloads/help.jsp

If you suspect the download is corrupt, you can verify using MD5 Verification. The detailed instructions are displayed when you selecting "Show MD5 download verification" from the "All Downloads" page.

In Summary, to verify the integrity of your Rational Team Concert downloads, compare
the MD5 cryptographic hash value for each downloaded file
against
the value provided in the counterpart .md5 file.

If the two hash values are identical, the Rational Team Concert download is good.

Please note that Eclipse 4.3 is not supported:

I've installed into non-supported versions of Eclipse, including 4.3, using p2 so the install should work. However, it is a good thing to point out that Eclipse 4.3 isn't supported. There isn't much, if any, testing done on Eclipse 4.3 so there may be issues.

For a supported version, I'd recommend looking at the RTC 4.0.3 IM install for Eclipse 4.2 in the all downloads section.

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

hi Folks,

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.

thanks again.
