A few days ago, IBM has released a new white paper for UCM administrators.This is very informative paper, which describes very brightly the use of PVOBs and nested PVOBs, includes ClearCase MutliSite environments.
You can find it here.
Have you downloaded and used “CompBL”, the freeware that compares ClearCase UCM baselines and streams?
If so, we would like you to answer a poll on its new features.
The two minutes poll is your opportunity to affect its features in next release. Please click on the following link:
(For a brief summary of CompBL – please visit http://gomidjets.com/compbl.html )
If you know about more users of “CompBL”, inside your company or outside, please pass the poll forward to them.
I’ve been asked about it by some of the readers.
Currently, I’m evaluating this new version. When I get my thoughts organized, I will publish it here. I hope it will be in a few weeks.
You can be informed about it by registering to blog right here.
Meanwhile, you can see a nice presentation about the new things in ClearCase 7.1 (Paul Weiss @ IBM RSDC 2008)
Versions 7.1 have been released two days ago. Both products seem to have new major features:
- ClearCase MultiSite Global Monitor – monitoring vital server processes
- New features of CCRC (ClearCase Remote Client)
- A new Java API suitable for infrastructure support or third-party development
- New command line interface (CLI)
- New features of ClearQuest designer
- Out-of-the-box ALM schema
I will try out these versions soon and write my thoughts here.
I also hope that the new Java API does not throw the old CAL for .NET away (IBMers – if you know anything about it, please let me know)
28 Nov Update: Michael Manning, ClearCase Product Manager, told me the following: “You can still use all the interfaces we’ve used till now but in the future we’ll only be updating and supporting the CM API.“
