CC 7.x on Solaris. We all log into one display server and work - and no individual unix workstations.
I am trying to replace the default ClearCase merging and comparing tool with Beyond Compare tool.
I found this link: http://www.guiffy.com/help/GuiffyHelp/ClearCase.html
The path at Linux is: /opt/rational/clearcase/lib/mgrs/text_file_delta/
This path includes the links which points to the tools to be used. It seems like a common links to all CC users.
Is there any way of defining the merging/comparing tools only for a specific user?

Re: Replacing the default ClearCase merging and comparing tool2013-01-30T16:46:40Z in response to Ratan_k00There is no supported mechanism to replace the merge tools on a per-user basis when those users are all using the same client host.
Well, almost... You can try updating to ClearCase 8.0 and check to see if the compare/merge options in ClearTeam Explorer would fulfill your needs. This would be a GUI-only -- and in fact ClearTeam-Explorer-specific -- change, but it may do what you need.
