Error description

  • When attempting to use the rcleartool portion of the IBM
    Rational ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer plugin for Eclipse, the
    setup will silently fail with the following lines as the only
    output:
    ------------------
    Attempting to setup rcleartool for first use. Just a moment...
    Starting search for launcher
    
    ------------------
    No error is displayed.
    
    Workaround:
    1) Locate the line that reads:
        for /R '%PATH_TO_RCLEARTOOL%' %%f in (*.jar) do call
    :filesearch '%%f'
    2) change it to read
        for /R '%PATH_TO_RCLEARTOOL%..\..\' %%f in (*.jar) do call
    :filesearch '%%f'

    ****************************************************************
    When attempting to use the rcleartool portion of the
    ClearCase ClearTeam Explorer plugin for Eclipse, the setup
    failed because it was unable to locate the launcher script.
    The script is assuming that it will be in the
    ...\eclipse\plugins directory, and not in the
    ...\plugins\{CTE Plugin directory}\scripts
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in ClearCase 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2.
