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 ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

Project importer - Create working sets on project import

You have a project importer that is creating working sets on a project import. When you import a project into the workspace, two working sets are created: one containing project that was selected for import and the second one containing project's dependencies (and also dependencies to the dependencies). Additionally, when you import a test project (the project which contains test code for production code), the project with production code is also added to the working set. By having such working sets it's easy to filter what you currently want to see in the Project Explorer and in the Eclipse workspace. Working sets are automatically created by importer plugin exactly for the projects that were imported by the user. After you switched from your importer to IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime's (RSARTE) project importer, you notice that you're missing this functionality. You would like to have the creation of working sets on the project import implemented in the importer.
