HP-UX formal support for the RTC open source via IBM biz partner

Jim Donovan (113) | asked Aug 13 '12, 8:54 a.m.
A prospective customer wishes to include their HPUX developers in Jazz/RTC support for SCM.

They desire a direct port of the Eclipse UI for those Unix developers.  From our IBM support statement (on ) for v4.x IBM formally supports Solaris Unix and some of the Linux servers; but, none of the hpux pa risc 11.x versions have IBM support.   Do customers, or IBM business partners have experience with doing an HP-UX port for Eclipse, and the RTC tools (build tool, release management, SCM)?

(And, would any business partner help with the port and formally state their support to a customer in New England, metro Boston?  If so, contact me directly)  My understanding of "open commercial", versus "open source" is that the client would need to own the port effort, that a business partner can not distribute the binary of such an effort (port to HPUX).

The other options, are web based UI from their HP-UX, as well as using Windows explorer plug-in via Win/7 workstations to the HP-UX servers, but the customer would specifically like command line, and Eclipse based UI for HP-UX shell.

@norman -- customer still evaluating Jazz solution.  But, likely would mean use of ClearTeam explorer with synchronizer, or bridge.  All the Clearcase SCM features would still provide work item management (just as would be provided with RTC SCM);  only noted exception, is if the users want to relate work items ( Tasks, Stories, Defects, etc ) directly from the command line interface (currently, not supported).

had your team made a decision for their HP-UX environment??!?
