Should offer both IM and p2 install options like RTC does.
IBM comments: a) this RFE pertains to all IDEs (RDz, RDi, ...), not just to RAD
b) some things to consider as the community evaluates this RFE, or suggests variants of it: if we offered the IDE as P2 update site and let you apply it onto your own separately provisioned Eclipse (instead of using the internal IBM Eclipse SDK (IES) that is included in the traditional IDE packaging), then that underlying Eclipse foundation, unlike IES, would be Eclipse community-supported, not IBM-supported. For example: Worklight Studio and WebSphere Development Tools for Eclipse no longer ship with IES and they now use P2. When you use those tools, the non-OSS components are IBM-supported, but the OSS components are not. Also, IBM Installation Manager actually does more rigorous component level compatibility and dependency checking than P2. (In can be annoying when IM reports these, but perhaps less annoying than finding out later that something is broken)
