Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Allow DVM Studio to prompt for workspace at startup

Typically, Eclipse-based products will prompt the user for a workspace when the application is launched. DVM Studio, however, uses or creates dvm_workspace automatically. If a user wants to test a new version of Studio without the risk of the workspace being corrupted or modified to the point where they cannot revert it back the prior version, they must manually locate the default workspace and rename the file before launching Studio.

    Hey Doug, Dale has figured out a solution that SF is happy with and so is Rocket:

    We are going to Reopen this and move forward with an Enhancement.

    Dale has created a Setup.bat file (I will attach to this case) that can be used that will:

    1) Ask you if you want to have the Workspace prompt on starting the Studio.

    2) If you say yes then it will build the Launch.bat file accordingly so that it prompts you for a Workspace on startup.

    This can be accomplished by removing the "-Data" from the Launch.bat file. You will then be prompted for a Workspace.
