Pinned topic Replacing the default ClearCase merging and comparing tool

‏2013-01-18T03:17:50Z |
Hi,

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?

Thanks!

    There 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.
