Stroring information from other rational tools in the reposi

Hello all,
I was wondering if this is possible to use jazz/extend jazz to function as federation layer for the repository.

I would like to be able to store/retrieve models in the jazz repository exported from different Rational tools - WBM, RequisitePro etc.

I am new to the technology so excuse me if the question sounds dumb :(

To be more concrete - is it possible to create Eclipse client plugin connecting to different Rational tools, which works the same way as CVS plugin - connecting to specific Jazz repository via customized service?

When you say the "CVS plugin", are you referring to the Eclipse CVS
plugin that lets you use CVS as an Eclipse "team provider"?

If so, this is a mechanism that lets you use Eclipse as a GUI wrapper
around CVS, and doesn't "connect" the CVS tool or data to the Jazz
repository in any way.

Or are you referring to the Team Concert CVS Importer? That is a
mechanism for importing data (versions) into Jazz SCM, but that is only
relevant for SCM tools (such as ClearCase), not for arbitrary tools (by
Rational or otherwise).

Cheers,
Geoff

He Geoff and thanks for replying!

I mentioned the CVS plugin just as example.
What I would like is to create a UI plugin which can be installed on any eclipse-based platform (in my case I am interested in different Rational tools), which can connect to Jazz repository.
I will create my component- the commmon and service plugin , the client-library plugin and the UI plugin - I just want to install and use this UI plugin not in TeamConcert client , but on other eclipse-based tools.

I imagine this should be possible, right?

Yes, Team Concert uses the standard Eclipse plug-in mechanism to extend
the client, so you should be able to install Team-Concert plug-ins into
an Eclipse that is version 3.3 or later.
