Why is the StarTeam Perspective not visible within DefineIT after installing StarTeam for Eclipse Client?

Problem:

Why is the StarTeam Perspective not visible within DefineIT after installing StarTeam for Eclipse Client?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: Caliber DefineIT 2006
  • Product Version: 2006
  • Product Component: Configuration and Version Management
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows XP

This could be due to either:

  • You have installed a version of the StarTeam for Eclipse client that is not supported with DefineIT 2006. (At present only StarTeam 2005 R2 eclipse client is compatible with DefineIT 2006).
  • Another piece of software has altered how file types of .jar are opened. (such as Nokia phone suite).

To check the settings for .jar files:

  1. Open any folder
  2. Select Tools | Folder Options
  3. Select File Types tab
  4. Scroll down to extension "JAR" and highlight this option
  5. Click on Advanced

There should be an action called "open". See screenshot below:

If this does not exist, select new and include the following information:

  1. Action: open
  2. Application used to perform action:
    This will depend on the version of JRE you have installed, e.g for 1.6.0_04 the path would be

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_04\bin\javaw.exe" -jar "%1" %*

  3. Use DDE
    Check this option and enter
    Application: javaw
