Using both Subversion and Clearcase with Eclipse



  • I've got 2 projects, in the same Eclipse (3.2 if it matters) workspace (set up by someone else, so I'm stuck with it). One is under Clearcase and the other under Subversion. The Clearcase plugin was installed first, then the Subversion plugin.

    Now I am unable to access any of the Clearcase actions via Eclipse's team menu (it keeps trying to do it via Subversion, even for the Clearcase project.

    Can anyone offer any advice on how to make these two work for the resepective projects? Or can you only use one source control plugin at a time with Eclipse?

    Thanks.

     



  • Hmmm, random playing around reveals:

    • unzip clearcase plugin into eclipse tree
    • unzip subversion plugin into eclipse tree (overwrites some key clearcase file so the Team submenu comes up only for subversion, even for clearcase proejcts)
    • unzip the clearcase plugin into eclipse tree - again - seems to restore the corrupted file
    Now r-clicking on Team gives the correct submenu for each respository, based upon how each individual project is set up.

    Is there a better way?

     



  •  Hi,

    Don't forget to e-mail him teh codes.



  • For this solution, does Subversion still work correctly?

    I've run into an issue where I have both ClearCase and Subversion plugins in my Eclipse. When I checkout a project from Subversion, ClearCase takes over as the repository provider and when I r-click on Team, I only get the ClearCase options. Has anybody seen any similar issues?
