Differences between Stand-alone and Extended P2 client install

Technote (FAQ)


What is the difference between a stand-alone and extended p2 eclipse client installation for IBM Rational Team Concert?


When installing the P2 client, the installation prompts which install to proceed with.


The 'stand-alone installation' installs the Rational Team Concert plugins into its own directory, as the eclipse client will be used solely for the purpose of Rational Team Concert.

The 'extended install' will allow the Rational Team Concert plugins to be installed in a shared plugin directory for bundle pooling. This will ensure that when multiple product plugins are installed, there is no duplication of plugins.
