Limitations for shared Eclipse 3.4.x-based IBM product installations
Problems can occur when you install Eclipse 3.4.x-based products into a shared package group (shell sharing) using Installation Manager.
For information about which products can share a package group, see the following technote: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2042&uid=swg21279139
For limitations for other versions of Eclipse, see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27014124.
Cannot upgrade certain Rational products when shell sharing with certain Integrated Data Management products
If you select the option to install one of the products in list 1 in a language other than English, the Rational products in list 2 are not compatible, and IBM Installation Manager will not allow you to install them into the same package group.
To work around this issue, you can modify your installation to remove all non-English languages. You will then be able to install the products into the same package group.
Cannot tune queries:
An error is displayed when you try to tune queries, if you have followed these steps:
1. Install one or more of the following products into the same package group:
2. Create one or more workspaces in which the Project Explorer view is not open.
3. Install Optim Query Tuner for DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows Version 2.2 into the same package group.
4. Open any of these products, using one of the workspaces that you created in step 2.
To work around this issue, ensure that the Project Explorer view is open before you try to tune a query. To open this view, select Window > Show View > Project Explorer.
Problems creating a new COBOL or PL/1 stored procedure:
In the following shared installation configuration, you cannot use a wizard to create a new COBOL or PL/1 stored procedure:
Rational Developer for System z Verson 7.5 + (Data Studio Developer Version 2.1 OR Rational Application Developer Version for WebSphere Software 7.5.1 OR Rational Software Architect Version 7.5.1 OR InfoSphere Data Architect Version 7.5.1)
Cannot open the logical data model editor after UML-to-logical data model transformation:
In the following shared installation configuration, an error is displayed after UML-to-logical data model transformation that indicates that the editor cannot be opened:
InfoSphere Data Architect Version 7.5.1 + WebSphere Business Modeler Version 6.2.0 + (Rational Software Architect Version 7.5.1 OR Rational Software Modeler Version 7.5.1)
To work around this issue, close and reopen the product after performing the transformation.
Multiple error messages are displayed during logical to UML model transformation
In the following shared installation configuration, Multiple error messages are displayed during logical to UML model transformation. The transformation completes successfully.
InfoSphere Data Architect Version 7.5.1 + (Rational Software Architect Version 7.5.1 OR Rational Software Modeler Version 7.5.1)
You can ignore these errors.
InfoSphere Data Architect (formerly Rational Data Architect) and Rational Software Architect/Rational Software Modeler must be at the same release level in order to shell share
Due to shared modeling code, you might see unpredictable results if you install InfoSphere Data Architect and Rational Software Architect or Rational Software Modeler into the same package group at different release levels.
