I have JTS-CCM V4.0.4 installed and working and wanted to look at requirements composer. I have realized that this zip contains only the CCM application, is there a similar zip containing the whole CLM solution or Requirements Manager?

 Hi Bruce,

 Anthony is correct I have never manager to get the converter (part of the graphical editor) to run natively on the Mac - it relies on using a header less Xvfb to render the graphical pages before sending them as html.
I believe that there are several Xvfb implementations for the Mac but I have not invested any time in them.

I have successfully in the past created a Linux VM on VMWare running on the Mac and then used IBM Installation Manager on the VM but let the installation install CLM into a local Mac directory. You then perform the same tweaks to the startup and CLM should fire up on the MAC - I have not tested the latest version though.

In the end I find it simpler (and supported) to create a Linux/Windows VM on the VMWare on the Mac and then use the native Mac browser and native Mac Eclipse client to access all parts of CLM.

Hi Bruce

There isn't a full download of CLM as a zip. I believe (and someone will correct me if I am wrong) that there are elements of the server that will not run natively on MacOSX (for example, part of the graphical editor for RRC) - and this may be preventing us from supplying a zip.
