When in IBM Rational Developer for i I do a Help, About, and see I am at Version: 18.104.22.168 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 22.214.171.124 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 126.96.36.199.
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).
Exactly right, Rob.
