RTC client is crashing when open a workitem


Bala Rajamani (31117) | asked Aug 11 '11, 3:21 p.m.
Hello,

I'm running eclipse 3.6.2 (Helios) along RTC plugin. But eclipse is crashing especially when I'm trying to view work item list or trying to open a work item.

Currently running a plain eclipse 3.6.2 with RTC 3.0 plugin (doesn't include any other eclipse plugins) on Windows XP machine with max memory of 1024.

Wondering is any one else has similar issue?

Thanks in advance,
Bala.

Hi Bala, how did you deploy? Did you use the P2 Install or IM? You could try to use another install option described here: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/clmhelp/v3r0m1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.jazz.install.doc/topics/c_client_installation.html

Hi Ralph,

I've installed through the steps in the info center on "Installing the client into Eclipse (p2 install)" and tried other mentioned options both on the info center and the steps in https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21502374

but still having issue of browsing through RTC projects and work items.

Thanks,
Bala.

Hi Guys,

I'm facing similar difficulties when Opening a Work item. The Eclipse client crashes are intermittent, but are quite frequent. Please help!

(It's more than a year since this the last post, wondering if there is an answer already for this??)

Thanks in advance

I would suggest to look into the .metadata folder of the eclipse workspace and check the logs and if there is a core dump. i have not seen anything like this, so I am not sure what it could be. The core dump could also reside in the folder containing the Eclipse.exe. Maybe this is due to too few memory?

Ralph,

Thank you for your quick response.

Below is the eclipse crash log:

Where can I set the path equinox looks for? 

Thanks,

Do you also think that fixing the path would fix eclipse, or is there anything else gone wrong that I have missed?

Please let me know your suggestions.

Thanks,

I have been looking at the system requirements for 3.0 https://jazz.net/library/article/496 and it does only mention 3.6.1. This might or might not be a problem. I am also aware that there were some issues with the P2 install - essentially issues if you tried to install something else into the Eclipse install after the RTC p2 install.

Any reasons why you use the p2 Install as opposite to trying to use the IM install into 3.6.2?

I am just trying to come up with options here.

I have no clue where the path error comes from. I searched one of the client installs I have and found: Eclipse\p\org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine\profileRegistry in some files. You might want to search for the string on your machine.

I believe the path is set in config.ini using eclipse.p2.data.area
The file is located here...RTC-Client\client\eclipse\configuration\config.ini

Here's what mine looks like
eclipse.p2.data.area=@config.dir/../p2/

As for the crash I don't know if this will help or not.
