How to add Jazz Repository Connection to C++ eclipse IDE

Ashok Sonawane (9913) | asked Sep 23 '15, 7:43 a.m.

I was trying to add RTC 5.0.2(p2 Install Repository) in C++ eclipse IDE (eclipse-cpp-helios-SR2-win32).
It was showing following error...

"An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=epp.package.cpp, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
Comparison method violates its general contract!

The system requirements list lists IES (IBM Eclipse SDK as base for installing there is a tech note if you install in an Eclipse from

IES contains more fixes than the Eclipse org editions may contain. I have seen issues with installing into Eclipse from Eclipse org. You could try to install the RTC Vanilla or any other shipped version and install the C++ Extensions into it.

Where did you get Eclipse woth C++ development? You got it from So similarely, you go to get the update site fro the CDT and install whats needed in the RTC Eclipse Help>Install new software.
