 Hi 

Maybe you are hitting a known problem and you might need to use the workaround as mentioned here.

https://jazz.net/library/article/1337

Perhaps this thread might help as well:

https://jazz.net/forum/questions/134134/rtc-404-p2-repository-support-for-rad90

If not, as suggested by Krzysztof you will need to raise a PMR with IBM Rational Support.

Hello N,
We need to look into javacore file generated to troubleshoot this. Please open new PMR for a support and deliver javacore.txt file generated during crash.

Hi Sumant Renukarya,

I have searched the forum myself for solutions, but couldn't find anything.
As I have found a solution in the second link you provided.

Workaround #2 of this article worked for me: 


Workaround 2: Modify eclipse.ini

Locate the directory where the Rational Team Concert client was installed, and find the  eclipse.ini  file inside it. Edit the  eclipse.ini file, and find and remove the following line from it:
-Xshareclasses:name=IBMSDP_%u
