My project is considering a move from RSA to Rhapsody for a variety of reasons, but we have a concern regarding 64-bit Eclipse support on a 64-bit Linux OS - our required development environment. RSA already supports 64-bit Eclipse on Linux, while Rhapsody apparently does not.
My understanding is that the RHEL 6.x compatible version of Rhapsody 8.0.x is only available as a 32-bit application. While this is not a problem on a 64-bit Linux host, it would force us to use a matching 32-bit version of Eclipse (3.7.2 is apparently the latest version supported by Rhapsody - an improvement over 3.6.2 for RSA :)), which in turn would force use of a compatible 32-bit JVM.
Our problem is that we have a significant number of additional Eclipse plug-ins within our IDE, and very large project needs that require a 64-bit JVM in order to transcend the 4 GByte available memory size limit. However, a 64-bit JVM requires a 64-bit Eclipse installation, which is not compatible with the current 32-bit only Rhapsody product.
Does anyone know if there are plans to support a 64-bit Linux version of Rhapsody soon, so that we can consider this move, and be able to utilize a matched 64-bit Eclipse + JVM configuration?
