Error description

  • When using RSARTE and ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer(CTE)a user
    performs an operation that requires a merge(deliver/merge search
    etc) from
    source view to target view, and if the model that is present in
    the UML perspective IS NOT that of the view that is the merge
    target, the logical model merge tool does not display and merges
    proceed as if they
    were trivial and models become potentially corrupt.

    The issue in question occurs only on unix platforms when the
    workbench is running in a view context.  The customer had
    symlinks of the nature /vob/vobtag/some/path --?
    /vob/othervobtag/some/path.  In the version of CTE being
    used, even when running in a view context, imported projects
    would have the path:
    /view/viewtag/vob/vobtag/some/path/projectname the
    ClearCase back end server,  of course would not know about
    the view context as this use case was not truly supported,
    so it ended up looking for the absolute path without having
    a view context.  Naturally it could not find the symlink
    target.  The fix for this deals with this.  The project set
    problems were also due to this effect although not directly
    caused by the ccbe back end.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearCase versions  8.0.0.3
