I’m trying to install some plug-ins to an IBM Rational Application Developer 7.5 install so we can use it with IBM Build Forge 7.1.
I have the IBM Rational Installation Manager installed. I’ve been given 8 Jar files, (6 are plug-ins and 2 are features). I can’t figure out how to get these jar files added to my installation of RAD.

Can someone help me figure out how to use Rational Installation Manager or some scripting to get the jar files applied to my RAD installation?

I think your question would best be posed on the relevant IBM forum.

I created a batch file to install the jar file, here is the code:
@echo off
REM /***************************************************
REM /* When installing this jar file, you must be in the Working Directory
REM /* that you want it to expand into.
REM /***************************************************
CD "C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\jdk\lib"
"C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\jdk\bin\jar.exe" xvf rbf-services-client-java.jar

I want the jar file to be expaned in the \lib folder. So I copy it there and then Change Directory to that folder. Then I run the jar.exe command with the xvf switches on my jar file.
