Installing Collaborator Plug-In for Eclipse

To create Collaborator reviews manually from the Eclipse IDE, you need to install and configure the Collaborator plug-in for Eclipse. This topic provides detailed information on this.

Note: The Collaborator plug-in for Eclipse extends the functionality of Rational Team Concert plug-ins for Eclipse. If these Team Concert plug-ins are not installed, the Collaborator plug-in for Eclipse will not work.

To install and configure the Collaborator plug-in for Eclipse:

1. Download the update site .zip package with the plug-in from our web site:
Open this web page in a web browser:
To start downloading, click the Eclipse Plug-In: Update Site & Instructions link.

Important: Rational Team Concert Client 3 installs with and requires Java 5. To work with that version of the Team Concert Client, you need CodeCollaborator 6.5. If you download and use the update site package of Collaborator ver. 7 or later, the plug-in's functionality will be limited. The workaround is to modify the eclipse.ini file to point to Java 7 (see below).

2. Follow the Eclipse plug-in's Install & Update instructions to setup and configure the Eclipse plug-in.
3. If your version of Eclipse uses Java 5 or 6, then it is necessary to change the eclipse.ini file to use Java 7. Details about this change can be found at the following site:

Here is an example of the change:

-vm C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7\jre\bin\javaw.exe

Other Configuration Actions

If you are going to create reviews manually, then all you need is to install and configure the Collaborator plug-in for Eclipse. To use other integration features, you need to install configure the Collaborator server and install and configure special plug-ins for Rational Team Concert. For complete information on this, see topics of the Configuring Servers and Plug-Ins section.
