NullPointerException when invoking TeamPlatform.startup()


Marco Simioni (1112) | asked Sep 27 '16, 1:31 p.m.
 Hi All,
I've just imported a project created by a colleague but I am running into the following NullPointerException exception (see stack trace below).
My environment is Eclipse 4.4.2, Apache Tomcat/7.0.54, java-1.8.0-oracle-1.8.0.101-1jpp.1.el7.x86_64, com.ibm.team.repository.client_1.3.0.v20140406_2347.jar.

Any thoughts?

Many thanks,
Marco

You're using a quite old version of RTC, and I doubt that it supports Eclipse 4.4.2 and Java 8.
