Support policy for the CCRC Rich Client Platform and external Eclipse plug-ins

Technote (FAQ)


What is the support policy for use of external Eclipse™ plug-ins used within the IBM® Rational® ClearCase® Remote Client (CCRC) Rich Client Platform?


Does the IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client (Rich Client Platform version only) support adding other Eclipse plug-ins to the application?

The IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client is a stand-alone application built on Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) Technology and includes its own installer and IBM JRE.

Although the Rich Client Platform version of CCRC has the Eclipse update and plug-in installation capabilities to install external plug-ins, this is not supported.


If you wish to have remote ClearCase capabilities and leverage Eclipse technology with other plug-ins, you will need to download Eclipse 3.0.1 or later and install the ClearCase Remote Client plug-in for Eclipse.

Review technote 1215611 for more information on installing or updating CCRC for Eclipse.

Note: There is no difference in Rational ClearCase capabilities between the two clients (ClearCase Remote Client RCP vs ClearCase Remote Client plug-in for Eclipse).
