RSA 7 is built on eclipse 3.2.X and Team Concert requires eclipse 3.3.X
so that is not currently possible.

Are there any news to this topic with the final release of Team Concert? I am also very interested in running RSA within Team Concert/Jazz.

The comment from James Stuckey about the RSA 7 vs Team Concert
requirements is still true. However, if you have access to the RSA 8
Betas then it should be possible to install both RSA 8 and Team Concert
into the same Eclipse shell.

My understanding is that "RSA 8(?)" is built on top of eclipse 3.4, but RTC is built on 3.3; so I assume from the response that RTC is supported on 3.4.

I'm curious as to why this scenario would work but the original question (scenario) not work (RSA 7 on eclipse 3.3)?

I have not tried this in a very long time so I don't recall what the
specific incompatibility is, but I believe the short answer is simply
that one or more tolerances within the RSA 7 offering are incompatible
with the bits included in RTC.

In the case of eclipse 3.4 and 3.4-based products, RTC was developed
with the intention to make our best effort to ensure eclipse 3.4
compatibility and installation tests were run against the 3.4 product
development builds to identify and address issues that arose.

Hello James,

RSA/RAD 7.0x was based upon Eclipse 3.2 so there was no way to install RTC
into that. However there were ways to cooperate.
RSD/RSM 7.0.5 worked. After the release ot RSA 7.5 it works it ships RTC1.0
in the install.
BTW the UML parallel development seems to be greatly enhanced in the 7.5
code stream.

Seems RSA 7.5 used Eclipse 3.4.1 version. I tried to install RTC client on RSA 7.5 via IBM Installation Manageron, but failed. When I chose "C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP" as the extended Eclipse IDE path, it reported the following error, and the "Next" button is in gray:

There is a package installed at "C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP". The Eclipse IDE must not be the same as an existing package installation directory.

Does anyone have some ideas about this problem? Thanks.

This looks to be an old request I missed somehow. I'm guessing you
already found the answer but responding in case others have the same
question.

If you are attempting to shell share with another installation manager
installed product, you do this by just selecting the same 'package
group' at install time, not by using the install into existing eclipse
panel.

The general sequence of steps are as follows (order of intallation does
not matter):

1. Install first product via the installation manager (i.e. whatever
you want to shell share with RTC)
2. Start the installation of RTC. After the license acceptance panel,
you will see a panel called 'Install Packages'. There are two choices
"Use the existing package group" and "create a new package group".
Choose "Use the existing package group" and select the package group for
the install from step one (if you have multiple products installed you
can select them and additional information will be displayed in the
details section at the bottom to help you find the right one).
3. Continue through the wizard and complete the install

That's it...

I tried the above steps and get getting the error below when I am trying to select "Use the existing package group". I am trying to use the same package group where RSA7.5 is installed. Please let me know if any other changes is required?

You need to remove RTC 1.0 from the RSA install before you install RTC
2.0. The thread
http://jazz.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5452&highlight=rsa talks more
about this.

Installing Rational Team Concert - Client for Eclipse IDE 2.0 is not
allowed in this package group; it is not compatible with IBM
Rational Software Architect for WebSphere Software 7.5.0. It may
be installed in a different package group.
In installation context "com.ibm.sdp.eclipse.ide":
No included version of component
"com.ibm.team.client.feature.reports" meets all tolerances
Version 2.0.0.I200905090340-2--78E00_7dCDBW8ZWYiFz00WLrd does
not satisfy include tolerance
