Testing with Rational ClearCase

As you develop your HCL OneTest™ UI test scripts and the supporting files that accompany those scripts, you can use Rational® ClearCase® as your software configuration management system to maintain an auditable and repeatable history of your organization's test assets.

Using Rational ClearCase allows you to share projects, scripts, script templates, test datapools, and object maps across the testing team. You can manage changes in test assets stored in the HCL OneTest UI project and in software system development from requirements to release.

HCL OneTest UI works with Rational ClearCase. Rational ClearCase must be purchased separately. You must install Rational ClearCase to use the HCL OneTest UI Rational ClearCase integration.

If you are using a version of Rational ClearCase earlier than this version, you must update the Rational ClearCase type managers to recognize HCL OneTest UI test object map files on Windows systems.

HCL OneTest UI works in a Rational ClearCase view enabled for Unified Change Management (UCM) if the view was created as part of a single-stream UCM project. HCL OneTest UI does not work in views that are part of multistream UCM projects.

Here is a scenario of how to use HCL OneTest UI and Rational ClearCase to manage test assets:

HCL OneTest UI, Eclipse Integration, compiles the project when an element changes. If you are using a dynamic view, automatic compilation can be time consuming, depending on the size of the project. To disable this feature, click Window > Preferences and clear the Perform build automatically on resource modification check box. HCL OneTest UI, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET Integration, does not automatically compile the project when an element changes.

You can use the HCL OneTest UI integration with Rational ClearCase to perform these tasks:
