Problem Installing RTC 4.0.3 Into Eclipse Juno

Chris Barlock (18814738) | asked Jul 30 '13, 3:28 p.m.
I unpacked the Eclipse 4.2 SR2 Java EE bundle and started Eclipse.  I then downloaded and unpacked it.  I added a new Software Site, file:/C:/D/tempInstall/RTC-Client-Eclipse4.2-repo-4.0.3/im/repo/rtc-client-full-p2-offering/offering-repo/.  I can click the Reload button on the Software Sites dialog and get a message that the information for this repo has been loaded from the server -- so Eclipse seems to think this is a valid Software Site.  However, when I try to use this site, I'm told that there are no items available for installation.

Oddly, I used this same mechanism to install RTC 4.0.1 back when we upgraded our server to 4.0.1 and it worked just fine.  (Today's installation was into a fresh Eclipse directory tree; it was not an attempt to upgrade 4.0.1 to 4.0.3.)  Any thoughts on what might be wrong?

Hi Chris,

This might have been a Eclipse bug. Can you try this? Uncheck "Group items by category"...

Thanks, Clement.  I did try that -- it didn't make any difference.

Not sure why it was working for your 4.0.1 but you were supposed to use IBM Installation Manager with the Can you try using the p2 repo instead? 

1. Download this p2 repo

2. Follow this instruction to have it installed in your 4.2 SR2 Eclipse. Skip to Step 5

Hope it helps. Thanks.

Ohhhhh!  I guess the "im" in the path should have been a clue.  Thanks, both Tim and Clement!  However, there must be something wrong with right now.  When I try to download this p2Repo, I accept the license agreement, get to a page where my download should begin shortly.  It doesn't, so I click the provided link and get:

Error 400".

I just tried and it worked fine. Maybe the problem with has been fixed.

Yes, just tried it myself.  It is working now and the p2Repo is what I needed.  Thanks to all!

The path suggests you downloaded the IM install, which is a different type of repository. If you're using the Eclipse p2 install, you'll need the p2 repo. Otherwise, you can get Install Manager and use the IM repo that you have.
