Note 1: Plug-in r7.20.x has not been certified with the IBM Rational Application Developer r7, but there are no known issues that would prevent the 7.20.x plug-in from working with RAD 7.0. RAD 7.0 is built on Eclipse SDK r3.2 and Eclipse 3.2 has been certified standalone. 

Note 2: Websphere Studio support from the CA Harvest Plug-in for Eclipse has been stabilized as IBM has expired support for the primary configurations of Websphere Studio Developer. Eclipse SDK 2.1 is also no longer supported by Eclipse.org. We recommend customers upgrade to the newer, replacement versions of Eclipse SDK or Rational Application Developer.
