Customizing source control tools

Out of the box, the product offers configuration management support for Rational ClearCase, but the product can be configured to use most other Configuration Management Software (CMS) that uses a vault and local repository architecture and that offers a command line interface.

To configure the product to work with your version control software:

  1. Add a new CMS tool to the Toolbox with the command lines for checking files into and out of the configuration management software. This activates the Check In and Check Out commands in the Project Explorer and the ClearCase Toolbar.

  2. Set up version control repository in CMS Preferences.
