I ran a test to find out if the Rational Team Concert Extensions Workshop still works with RTC 6.0 using the RC1 build. This is what I found.
The RTC extensions workshop still runs with RTC 6.0 but you have to increase the memory available for the JUnit test to setup the development time repository database.
The workshop worked well, until in step 1.6 Test the Jetty Based Server Launch you create the development time repository database by running the JUnit test Launch.
The original setting is -Xmx256. With this setting I got a memory error in the JUnit test that creates the development time repository database.
Change the memory setting to -Xmx512 as shown below.
The second observation I made after successfully running the JUnit test was when I tried to launch the RTC Eclipse client in 1.7 Test the RTC Eclipse Client Launch. The Launch shows a missing bundle.
This missing bundle does however not prevent you from running the launch and as far as I can tell at this point in time, the workshop is still working.
Since the memory footprint seems to be increasing at least for the JUnit test, keep this in mind for the other launches. If you run into memory errors, increase the memory settings for your launches. You can find the parameters to consider in the server.startup.bat file.
A user in the Jazz.net Forum pointed out that there is a service error in the server Status summary. You can see it below.
This error has always been there, as far as I know. I think this is simply a test – the services seem to be just test services to test the error detection capability.
As always I hope this information helps users of the community in their work.
