This little gem of an error came up today. While installing Rational Developer for Power, I got a message that the the product was not compatible with the package group I was installing into. In this case I tried installing into multiple existing package groups including one with Rational Business Developer, and another with Rational Application Developer.
In installation context "com.ibm.sdp.eclipse.ide":
Software being installed: com.ibm.assembly.rdpower.main 188.8.131.5201130_1111 (SE.1.com.ibm.assembly.rdpower.main 184.108.40.20601130_1111)
Missing requirement: SE.1.com.ibm.iseries.javaweb 8.0.1.v20101122_2106 requires 'SE.1.com.ibm.etools.webtools.core.feature [7.0.0,8.0.0)' but it could not be found
Cannot satisfy dependency:
From: com.ibm.assembly.rdpower.main 220.127.116.1101130_1111 (SE.1.com.ibm.assembly.rdpower.main 18.104.22.16801130_1111)
To: SE.1.com.ibm.iseries.javaweb [8.0.1,9.0.0)
This is an issue, and at the moment there is not an IBM support ticket open that I know of. The culprit is the "IBM i Web Services and Java Tools" selection. Deselect this option, and try again. That should resolve the issue.
