Two weeks ago, my article about this issue was published in “CM Crossroads”, the leading portal of CM world.
Here is a brief – you can read the whole article in the portal.
In Turbulent economic times such as the recent days, it is reasonable to assume that while some things will be reduced or cut, (e.g. human resources and budgets), others (e.g. documentation) will be maintained or even increased. So, what can we do to create effective and accurate CM Plans?
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.“
I’m just doing a little poll for one of my new add-on for ClearCase.I would like to know how many “in production” (real) VOBs do you have in your organization.
I would appreciate your honest answer.
