I asked a version of this question earlier, but never got a chance to try things out and the baseline has shifted so I want to check to see if the advice has. I have Rational Software Architect and PathMATE in an 3.6 Eclipse instance and PDSOE 11.3.1 in an Eclipse 3.7 instance. I am currently running them as two separate instances, but there would be some convenience in having them together. If I did the install in different instance thing and pointed to the 3.6 instance, is it likely to break?
Not sure about 3.6 but integrateArchitect.bat refused to integrate with Eclipse 3.7.2 (auto-upgraded from supported 3.7.1) Eclipse version reporting that it was not supported. This was with OE11.2.1.
'Work-around' was to integrateArchitect with 3.7.1 and then let Eclipse upgrade itself to 3.7.2.
Alternative workaround (aka Julian-hack): create a copy of %DLC%\oeide\Architect_Third_Party_3.7.1_repo under %DLC%\oeide\Architect_Third_Party_3.7.2_repo and run integrateArchitect.bat
11.3.1 PDS OE do not have support to Eclipse 3.6. You can install all third party plug-ins in a new Eclipse 3.7.1 instance and install PDS OE plug-ins on top of that eclipse using integrateArchitect.bat file.
$DLC\oeide>integrateArchitect.bat -install <target Eclipse Directory>
Hope this helps.
Thanks and Regards,
