Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Creating a new Faces project should include the HCL portlet bridge

After updating portal to CF18 from HCL, faces portlets do not build. HCL (apparently) provided a new portlet bridge jar file which RAD cannot see. The portal runs the portlets just fine but the portlets do not build in RAD.

RSARTE: Restructure for better parallel build support

Batch,mk in recursive batch make type can be optimized for faster builds and easier parallel building of CDT projects.

RSARTE: Add dependencies to RTS in generated makefile

In order to get incremental build to work correctly a dependency towards RTS libraries has to be added. Now we do it our self in # Add dependencies for the targetRTS.$(1)_LIBS_DEPS += \$(RTS_LIBRARY)/libObjecTime$(LIB_EXT) \...
