Subject A question about ClearCase integration?
Date Wed, 22 Nov 2000 19:53:32 GMT
I was skimming over the source code. 

It appears that you require a view path be set.

Why?

So far I've just been using 'exec' task in
my build.xml files. I've taken great care to
write every build.xml file to be independent of
view. So, I have 3 or 7 or 25 different views, and I
can update ("cleartool update .") or
(cleartool "update ../tools") in all views without
ever having to worry about telling 'build.xml'
the name of the view it's sitting in.

I can checkout and checkin, etc, all
by referring to elements RELATIVE to
where the build.xml file is, rather
than with an absolute path.

So, if your code demands a viewpath
be set, then my carefully crafted,
works in EVERY view approach is broken
if I choose to uses these tasks rather
than 'exec'...

Or, did I mis-understand the code??
