RTC 3.0 client and / or server on Mac OS X


Mirek Rzadkowski (46185) | asked Dec 23 '10, 6:45 a.m.
Before I spend too much time to get it working, has anyone yet got any positive experience getting the client and/or server for RTC 3.0 on Mac OS X off the ground?

A number of the developers of RTC use Mac's as their primary development machines, so while IBM only provides "community" support via these forums, the client should definitely work well.

Anthony, something's broken on my Mac ... cannot get the client to run not to mention the server.
My RTC 2 client and server work very well though.
Something is changed and I haven't figured yet how to fix it ...

This is a hard way ... There must be a way to install it directly onto Mac OS X with manual tweaks. Not that I know now how to .... but I'd rather spend time investigating it than installing ubuntu under parallels. So if you make a distribution your way please post it somewhere. If I figure out what to tweak, I'll share it too.

Hi

I am in the process of downloading the RTC v3 client to a Mac. This is the zip file version, will let you know how I get on. File is here:

Hi

OK - I used the zip file listed above and got the client working without any changes or adjustments. I can connect to a PC running a server - again no problem.

What might be more of a problem is running the server on a mac. Not sure how to do that other than using a VM on your mac.

Yes, I used the same zip download for the client. It will not even start with this error:

http://www.meerec.me/junk/errorRTC3.png

and the log file says:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2010-12-31 09:41:11.694

!MESSAGE An error occurred while automatically activating bundle com.ibm.team.repository.common (202).

Got both the server and client running on OS X v 10.6.5.
Client: simple, same as Anthony, no tweaks, just unzipped and double-clicked Eclipse app in /Users/freddy/IBM/TeamConcert/jazz/client/eclipse.

Server:
Can't find an OS X version of IBM IM, so :
- ran up a RHEL 5 VMWare VM
- installed IM v 1.4 into RHEL VM
- pointed a vmware share to a directory on my Mac (/Users/freddy/IBM)
- installed from IM into
/mnt/hgfs/freddy On My Mac/IBM
- on the Mac added following to my ~/.profile :
export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/Home

export CATALINA_HOME=/Users/freddy/IBM/JazzTeamServer/server/tomcat

- cd /Users/freddy/IBM/JazzTeamServer/server
- ./server.startup
- go to https://localhost:9443/jts/setup
- go to https://localhost:9443/ccm or https://localhost:9443/jts
- deployed process templates, created project area etc etc.

Bunch of errors in cc.log and jts.log but it all appears to work ok.

The one thing I could't figure out when running the setup was how to change the Public URI (without editing /etc/hosts): my imac's hostname is "Sudhakar-FREDERICKs-iMac" and using that in the public URI field resulted in a warning:
The network web application specified as "https://Sudhakar-FREDERICKs-iMac:9443/jts" cannot currently be resolved or opened. If you expect this address to be resolvable at this time, verify that the URI is valid. Connection message: SSL_TLS SSLContext not availableID CRJAZ1415W

If I ignored that warning, the next step failed.

Hi Freddy
if you were a good Samaritan, the last thing in the old year you could do is to tar and archive the server folder on your Mac OS X and upload to Dropbox. I can share a folder in Dropbox with you if you don't have one :D

Hi Mirek

Not seen this (yesterday was the first time I had run the RTC client on a Mac).

I did just click through the downloaded file and it seemed to extract itself in-place. I did not move any files, etc. Can you try that too (just run from the zip file)? This *might* be a permissions issue on the files if you moved them around. I am also an admin user on the machine - not sure if that makes a difference.

anthony
