Does the RTC server verson 5.0 can work with Build system tool kit 4.0.1 ? Or build system tool kit also need to be upgrade??

For what it's worth, I was able to use RTC 4.0.3's build system toolkit and scmtools fine with a RTC 5.0 server. The same goes for the Eclipse plugins. I don't think you'll have any issues.

As Ralph said though, you'll want to move to the next version as soon as you can since a lot of 5.0 improvements are aimed at the client (changeset gap editor, new importer/synchronizer commands, etc...)

It should still work, which will buy you some time, however, you should upgrade the build engines to the current server version.

can you point me to some link which says it supports BSTK 4.0.1 and what would be the behavior?

No, I can't. In general development targets for N-1 compatibility. Which means the clients should work across one major version difference. If this can't be done, the client will fail to connect at all.

If the client is not the same version, especially if the major version is different, the clients typically suffer performance drawbacks and can obviously not support newly available client features.
