Sharing a project

If you use IBM® Rational® ClearCase®, you must share the functional test project and then add the project to source control. When you share a project, you move it to a Rational ClearCase snapshot or dynamic view. The project must be in a Rational ClearCase view for you to add it to source control.

About this task

A snapshot view contains copies of Rational ClearCase versions and other file system objects in a directory tree. A dynamic view is always current with the versioned object base (VOB). Dynamic views use, create, and maintain a directory tree that contains versions of VOB elements and view-private files.

You can add a project to Rational ClearCase source control after you create the project, provided that you share the project and move it to a Rational ClearCase view.

Procedure

To share a functional test project:

  1. In the Projects view, right-click a new project, and then click Team > Share Project.
  2. In the Configure the project for ClearCase dialog box, click Browse to choose a directory that is in a Rational ClearCase VOB, and then click Finish.
  3. In the Projects view, right-click the project, and then click Team > Add to Source Control.
  4. Add all files and scripts, or only the project to Rational ClearCase:
    • Click Add all files and scripts in the project to ClearCase to add all files and scripts in the project to Rational ClearCase. Adding all files and scripts to Rational ClearCase might take several minutes.
    • Click Finish to add only the project to source control.
