Extending RTC 4.0 with Enterprise Extentions

 I am on a project that needs to extend RTC 4.0 with Enterprise Extensions. I have set up the Eclipse Client and I am using the [RTCExt] Debug Running Tomcat on a local Jazz Server. I have users set up with the Developer for IBM Enterprise Platforms licenses. I can see the Enterprise Extensions for projects I create for the Eclipse Client itself. However, If I create a client to test my code, the Enterprise Extensions do not appear. The test client contains the com.ibm.team.rtc.client.feature feature. Do I need to added other features so the Enterprise Extensions are available? Is there something else I need to do?

I have also set up the Jetty Server to run the Jazz server and the RTC Client still does not show Enterprise Extensions.

How are you creating your test client? You should be able to just do Run->Debug Configurations, double-click Eclipse Application and take the defaults. It should just use the EE plugins in your Eclipse Client you're developing with. The problem with using the SDK as a target is that it doesn't contain the EE plugins.

Robin, I'm creating the test client as described in IBM Rational Team Concert 4.0 Extensibility Lab Excercises(Section 1.7). I have set my target platform under Window>Preferences>Plug-in Development>Target Platform to the RTC SDK as directed in the Lab Exercies above. My only other choice is Running Platform. If I select Running Platform, I get compilation errors in my  developed Plug-ins. I tried using Run->Debug Configurations, double-click Eclipse Application and take the defaults but I still do not see the Enterprise Extensions.

As discussed, your plugins with errors are server plugins, and the errors are a result of only having the client plugins in your target platform. You should still be able to launch and test your client plugins with those errors there. Or you could create a target platform that contains both the RTC SDK and the RTC eclipse client. This will allow your server plugins to compile and allow you to launch a test RTC eclipse client containing the enterprise extensions.
