Can I access RTC v2 and V3 servers via rich client?


Spencer Brown (1111) | asked Mar 19 '12, 11:52 a.m.
I have a need to access both RTC V2 and V3 servers from the rich client (Eclipse). Can this be done? I tried installing the V3 client but it would not let me access a V2 server.

No, you cannot use the same rich client to access both a V2 and a V3 server. Starting in 4.0, we are introducing n-1 client compatibility, so for example, you will be able to access both a V3 and a V4 server using a V3 rich client.

OK so can I then install two different Rational program groups (or whatever they call them -- basically separate Eclipse shells) using Installation Manager, and put one RTC client in one and the other in the other?

And if I do this can I run them both at the same time, albeit in separate instances/windows?

What about accessing a V3 server using a V4 rich client?

No, a client major version number must be no later than the server major version number. The principle is that you upgrade the server first, and then clients upgrade at their convenience.
