Question & Answer
How can I setup the integration of IBM® Rational® ClearCase® (CC) with VS .NET 2005 using the ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) plug-in?
Remote users not developing with VS .NET 2005 locally will need to be able source control their applications.
Note: The CCRC plug-in is specifically for VS .NET 2005 and should not be installed for integrating with VS .NET 2003.
- Identify the name or IP address of your Rational CCRC/CCWeb server. Open a Web browser and use the following URL to reach the site that contains the CCRC plug-in for VS .NET 2005.
The CCRC plug-in for VS .NET 2005 can only be downloaded from a server running CC 2003.06.16 or later.
Download URL: http: //server_name/ccrc/update
Note: This is the same download page from which you download the Standalone CCRC application for your remote users.
- Locate the section titled “Installing the ClearCase Remote Client for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005”. Follow the instructions to download and install the CCRC plug-in for VS .NET 2005.
- Once you complete the installation successfully, you will now have the “ClearCase” menu option at the top of your VS .NET 2005 IDE as well as the “Front Desk” applet.
- You are now ready to develop using the CCRC plug-in integrated with VS .NET 2005. This will allow your remote users to develop with this integration strictly with the use of Web Views.
Note: ClearCase does not integrate the CCRC plug-in for VS .NET 2005 in the same manner that the full client integration is installed. If you go to the “Control Panel” > “Add/Remove Programs” from your client system, you will notice that this plug-in is installed as its own application, as shown in the example below:
