Error description

  • When using the IBM Rational ClearCase RDz integration a Null
    Pointer Exception will be thrown when trying to rename a project
    that is not under ClearCase control. This does not occur if the
    ClearCase integration is not installed.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Start RDz
    2. Create HLL/WB Project
    3. Add the project to ClearCase using the ClearTeam Explorer
    integration.
    4. Using RDz, make a copy of the project and place it into the
    local workspace. This new project copy will have a new name and
    not overwrite the original.
    5) Attempt to rename the newly created copy of the project that
    is outside of ClearCase control.
