Guide to setup Eclipse 4.2 for Jazz development (RTC v3.0.1.2)

  I've been trynig to setup Eclipse Juno (4.2) for Jazz development with RTC v3.0.1.2. But I can't even run Rational Team Concert on Jetty with it. The server starts and I can see the login page, but after that some libraries are missing all the time. I thought copying the dropins and features and plugins from an RTC v3.0.1.2 client might help, but no use. Will be grateful for any hints 

These errors look like this one: CRJAZ0098I The "{/jazz/secure/service/}" service failed. The server returned the HTTP error 404 with error text "Not Found". + a long trace

As mentioned by Ralph above, although the Eclipse 4.2 build is not officially supported you still should be able to use it. Personally I use Eclipse 3.8 and I set it up by downloading and extracting the zip and then using the p2 repository to install into it.

The P2 installation seems to have completed with no mistakes. Will try it out later and see if all the functions are present and running.

I am using the Eclipse 4.2 with RTC 4.0 installed on it.
I have loaded the work items stream and able to run server and do all the development activities without any problems.
Going by the error you have mentioned looks like you are trying to run a Junit. Check your Launch and Target Platform once.

The problem is that I need to install RTC v3.0.1.2 and the IBM installation manager fails to do it.

My advice would be to check the system requirements from the getting started tab on the download page. Look at the Plan and Prepare section. If you check the supported clients you can see:

  • Eclipse SDK 3.6, 3.6.1, 3.6.2
  • Eclipse SDK 3.5.2 [Bundled]

So using it in 4.2 is not supported. It might work, but there are no guarantees.

That's exactly why I'm asking if anyone knows how to make it work.

Have ypu tried the P2 install instead of the IM install? Small chance, though.
