RTC compare broke in Eclipse Simrel 2019-06 after updating

 I am running Eclipse Simrel 2019-06  version I use the RTC 6.0.6 plugin. I have found that updating either the WebSphere 8.5.5 tooling or XRebel breaks the RTC compare. Unistalling the plugins does not fix the problem. The following error is thrown:

An internal error occurred during: "Initializing Compare Editor for".
loading constraint violation when resolving method "com/ibm/team/repository/transport/client/RequestResponsePair.<init>(Lorg/apache/http/client/methods/HttpRequestBase;)V" : loader "org/eclipse/osgi/internal/loader/EquinoxClassLoader@93515593" of class "com/ibm/team/scm/client/content/BasicVersionedContentManager" and loader "org/eclipse/osgi/internal/loader/EquinoxClassLoader@91a0a902" of class "com/ibm/team/repository/transport/client/RequestResponsePair" have different types for the method signature

The versions of the plugins that work:

IBM WebSphere® Application Server traditional V8.5 Tools 19.0.300.v20190326_1423
ZeroTurnaround JRebel Eclipse Plug-in 2019.1.1.RELEASE org.zeroturnaround.eclipse.feature

I think there is a later, but not latest, version of XRebel that works as well. I don't add a lot of plugins, so these are the only two I know of that cause the issue. I did test the plugins independently.

 I am not sure how the forum could help on this one.

Understood, but I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue. If they haven't then maybe it is a combination of plugins I have and not directly caused by the two I have narrowed it down to. After discovering the issue I copied a another instance of Eclipse I have. There were already some plugins installed including XRebel and WAS 8.5.5. tooling. I then tested it by updating one of them and seeing if the problem arose. Rinse and repeat with the other one. I haven't started with an instance of Eclipse that only had the RTC plugin installed. I guess I could test this scenario. Installing the plugins one at a time. 

In any case, I'm not sure if this is an Eclipse or a RTC issue.

Also, though I did a lot of searches, I thought maybe I missed something and it was a known issue. If so, it is possible someone would point it out. I guess I just won't update any plugins for the time being.
