Eclipse plugin development - what version control tool do you use? [message #523897] Mon, 29 March 2010 18:38

Our company has recently started doing Eclipse plugin development, using the Eclipse IDE, and IBM Portal and IBM Lotus Expeditor. The enterprise standard for version control is ClearCase version 7.0.1.2, which worked well when we were doing J2EE non-plugin development.

Due to the long lengths of the Eclipse plugin names and directory structures, our developers are encountering issues working with their ClearCase versioned source code, due to the Windows pathname limitation documented below (note: developers are using either the ClearCase Windows client or ClearCase SCM adapter to Eclipse IDE, to access ClearCase):

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=984&uid=swg 21120400

Developers receive errors when trying to create a simple snapshot view, such as the one listed below:

Unable to open file " D:\CC_storage\jdoe10_APP_MAIN_pr_2\abc_apps_dev\utl_abc_pr\s ource\com.xyz.framework.bfcc.pcc.sfcc.security.authorization .pdp.rbac.xacml\src\com\xyz\framework\bfcc\pcc\sfcc\security \authorization\xacml\attribute\internal\DDStandardAttributeC onverter.java.loading ": Filename too long.
Unable to transfer a file: Filename too long.

What have other shops done to support the version control needs of Eclipse/Portal plugin development? Is ClearCase (Windows side) a workable solution for this kind of development?

Thank you in advance!
