When in IBM Rational Developer for i I do a Help, About, and see I am at Version: 188.8.131.52 of the Implementer Plug-in. How do I check for updates?
The Implementer plug-in for Rational Developer is just a regular Eclipse plug-in ... so you would use the built-in plug-in update procedure.
Do the following:
Thank you for your reply.
Is there a chart listing Implementer level compatibility with Plug-in? Like "Version . . . : 11.0" of Implementer goes with 184.108.40.206 of the Implementer Plug-in?
The plug-in version always is in sync with the major build id of Implementer.
IDSPVER command to determine the build id ... the major build id is 7.2. The plug-in will be version 220.127.116.11.
If there is a new plug-in released for a specific Implementer release, the 3rd segment of the plug-in version will be incremented.
The last segment of the plug-in version indicates if it is used for RDi 7.5 and higher or not. The plug-in used for WDSC 7.0 and RDi 7.1 does not have the .75 at the end. (We have deprecated support for WDSC 7.0 and RDi 7.1).
Implementer 11.0 (build 7.1 140429)
so 18.104.22.168 matches "7.1 140429" because of the 7.1 alone, right?
Exactly right, Rob.
