This video covers how to check that your RTC Eclipse client is correctly set-up for Rhapsody use with IBM Jazz's /am or /ccm application (RMM/RTC).
When using Rhapsody with Rhapsody Model Manager (RMM) or Team Concert (RTC) the file is stored on the file-system in a sandbox area. RTC Eclipse is run at the same time as Rhapsody to act as the bridge to the Jazz/am or Jazz/ccm application and the status of the units is provided directly in the Rhapsody browser.
There are 4 checks shown in the video:
1. Firstly, you need to check that the IBM Rational Rhapsody integration for Rational Team Concert plugin is installed. The plugin files are provided as part of the Rhapsody install. An Eclipse 64 bit client will work with both 32 and 64 bit Rhapsody. If you have 32 bit Rhapsody then make sure you install the 32 bit version of the plugin
2. Rhapsody and RTC Eclipse communicate via a port on the machine. The Eclipse client's error log can be a useful diagnosis tool, as it will report whether the comms is working between Rhapsody and RTC.
3. The Rhapsody model consists of unit files under the _rpy folder. You need to check that the Automatically detect changes box is checked in the Team > Jazz Source Control > Local Changes preferences for Eclipse. This will mean that when files are saved, the Eclipse client will update it's status.
