[buckminster-dev] Newbie with ClearCase challenge... [message #37057] Thu, 02 July 2009 14:03 Go to next message

First I would like to state my newbie status on Buckminster and I'm sorry if
posting in the wrong forum (Could not find any "Buckminster - Users" forum).

Looking at alternatives for a CI setup for multiple RCPs on a shared base
Buckminster comes out as the most obvious and mature candidate. Though I'm
very unfamiliar with it reading about the key concepts and the strong
integration with PDE gives me assurance.

Just have one small question that will help me answer if it is worth going
forth with some prototyping and in the long run abandon our existing ANT
based system...is it possible to make this work on a ClearCase env?

No need to set up views and stuff automagically but just being able to
handle resolving on views with different names. Is it possible to use
property expansion in the .rmap URIs e.g. env.CLEARCASEVIEW or
-Dclearcase.view.name=myView

Thanks
Patrik

Hi Patrik,
Buckminster has no support for ClearCase at present. It is designed with the intention to add this
support at some point but so far, we have prioritized CVS, SVN, and Perforce. Mainly because we have
not yet had any ClearCase users willing to contribute. I would love to see a ClearCase reader in
Buckminster.

That said, there are still ways to use Buckminster with CC. Buckminster is equipped with a reader
type named 'local' that assumes that whatever should be bound to the workspace has been checked out
already. The solution is of course a bit clunky but without a proper CC reader, it's the best we can do.

And yes, property expansion is definitely possible in the RMAP. Please consult our documentation on
this topic: http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/tools/bu ckminster/doc/BuckyBook.pdf

If there is an interest from your company or other CC users out there who would be interested in
contributing in this area, I'd be happy to help you get started.

Kind Regards,
Thomas Hallgren

Thanks Thomas,

Thats enough for me to go on with our quest for a better releng
implementation. I'd love to work on CC support for Buckminster but I guess
that's not up to me to decide...:-(

But becoming a Buckminster user would be a step in the right direction for
us though...
