In order to remain current, each Eclipse release is designed to run on reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments.
The Target Management Project 3.5 depends upon on the Eclipse Platform 4.3. For this release, the RSE sources will be written and compiled against Java SE 6, and are designed to run on that version as well.
The Target Management deliverables will be tested and validated against a small subset of the reference platforms listed in the Eclipse Platform 4.3 Project Plan (this list is updated over the course of the release cycle).
Apple Mac OS X 10.8 is considered a "secondary" Reference Platform meaning that it does receive some amount of systematic testing but doesn't enjoy quite the same priority for bug fixes as the other Platforms.
Microsoft Windows 7; SP1; x86, 64-bit; Win32; Oracle Java 6
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server; 11; x86, 64-bit; GTK; Oracle Java 6 or IBM Java 6
Apple Mac OS X (Secondary, see below); 10.8 (Mountain Lion); Universal 64-bit; Cocoa; Oracle Java 6
Eclipse and Target Management undoubtedly run fine in many operating environments beyond the reference platforms we test. However, since we do not systematically test them we cannot vouch for them. Problems encountered when running Target Management on a non-reference platform that cannot be recreated on any reference platform will be given lower priority than problems with running Target Management on a reference platform.
Although untested, Target Management should work fine on other OSes that support the same window system. For more details, see the Eclipse Platform 4.3 Project Plan.
Datastore Agent Reference Platforms
The Datastore protocol is the default protocol shipped with RSE for accessing remote file systems, process info and shells. It requires a Datastore server (agent) running on the remote system. This Datastore agent is shipped as plain Java Source Code together with the RSE distribution. It should run fine on any Java Platform, with additional Data Miner Plug-ins that may be OS specific.
We will test and verify the Datastore agent on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11, Intel x86, IBM 1.6 VM
