Jazz Process without the Jazz SCM?

I have some high level questions about integrating with Jazz.

Is it possible to leverage the Jazz process engine with Eclipse
projects that don't use the Jazz SCM to manage their files? Limited
to client side process rather than server side?

In our case, we're considering using SCM access based entirely on the
org.eclipse.team contributions like CVS, SVN, etc. In our case the
interest is incorporating an enterprise content manager.

JAZZ DEVELOPER
Process specifications in Jazz/RTC talk among other things about
permissions and behavior for certain operations such as 'Source
Control/Deliver(server)' aka 'com.ibm.team.scm.server.deliver'.

When an operation is invoked the process runtime ensures that the right
process permissions have been granted, the specified preconditions are
met, and the specified follow-up actions are executed. If an operation
the process specification talks about is never executed nothing happens.

Currently, only Jazz SCM executes operations with the ids listed in the
processes that ship with RTC out of the box. If you are not using Jazz
SCM but a different source control or content management system you
don't get any process interaction. These other systems don't pass
control to the Jazz Process component when they, for example, execute a
check-in operation.

Bottom line, you get the process support for all the components you use
and none for not integrated systems.

Hope this clarifies things a bit.

Thanks for the reply. It confirms my understanding. I had to ask to
satisfy my PDT.
