APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When working in the Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer (CTE),
    you may find that doing a "merge to" in the CTE Version Tree
    will launch the Diffmerge GUI and will not detect the merge as a
    "trivial merge".
    
    The same operation performed in the legacy Version Tree will
    detect the merge as a "trivial merge".

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearCase versions 8.0.1.13 and 9.0.0.3
    
    A new preference is introduced which will let the user control
    this behavior. And by default the merges from Version Tree will
    be done automatically.
