‘Oracle Team Productivity Center (TPC) is an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tool that enables software development teams to collaborate and work productively together when developing applications using JDeveloper.’ (OTN TPC page)
TPC provides unified access to different ALM repositories from within JDeveloper and it allows to define relations between the so-called work-items in these (separate) repositories. It consists of a central repository, a JDeveloper extension and a set of connectors to other systems. Currently, connectors to Jira, Bugzilla, Rally Software and Microsoft Project Server – task management are available. This means that we can, for example, access and work on our Jira issues from within JDeveloper. In addition it provides a task service and a Google Talk client for JDeveloper.

It also requires the connectors to be installed, although they are not really used to connect to the other systems. The connection to the repositories is made from JDeveloper, so you need the connectors and TPC extension.
