Hi Utkarsh

Looks like CodeCollaborator6.5 plugin is not supported for RTC 6.0.
Please check the below link:

An excerpt from the link:
Important: Since version 8.5.8500 Collaborator (both Server and Client parts and all plug-ins) requires Java 7.
Rational Team Concert 3 installs with and requires Java 5. To work with this system, you need to install Collaborator RTC update-site plug-in from CodeCollaborator/PeerReview Complete versions 65xx (as only these versions supported Java 5) and the CodeCollaborator/PeerReview Complete Server versions 7.x.

Rational Team Concert 4.x, 5.x and 6.x install with and require Java 6. To work with these systems you need to install Collaborator RTC update-site plug-in from versions 7.0-8.4.8406 (as these versions support Java 6) and Collaborator Server from 7.0 to the latest version.

To download and install the Collaborator Eclipse plugin, simply aim your Eclipse-based IDE based on the server version if 7.x,8.x or 9.x:
Below link has detailed instructions along with the screenshots to install the collaborator plugin  in RTC eclipse client 6.0:
Collaborator 9.x Eclipse plugin download & update site:

You can even download the archive file incase of no internet access and install using the offline file.

For other version of collaborator server, there are links in the same above URL which will redirect you to the corresponding eclipse plugin:

I tested the same for RTC eclipse client 6.0 and Collaborator 9.0 and it works fine.

Hi Rohit

Thanks for the quick information. Following the above instructions I am able to successfully integrate RTC eclipse client 6.0 with the compatible CodeCollaborator 9.0 plugin.

However, I am unable to find the Client configuration mapping details. I verified in Project explorer but it shows blank. I need to fetch the Component UUID,

Please suggest.

Hi Utkarsh

You need to load the components first in a repository workspace else Project Explorer will be blank.

Steps you can follow:
From the RTC eclipse client, first create a Repository Workspace and Load the Component and create a eclipse project for the same.
Once done, now navigate to to the Project Explorer View and you will see the Project listed now.
Right-click the project and select Properties. select Jazz Source Control from the tree on the left.
Here you will find the Component and Component UUID.

Let me know if this helps.
