Subject RE: ccupdate not getting all files
Date Wed, 26 Jul 2006 17:29:58 GMT
Since ccupdate is really a wrapper around cleartool, your question is
really a clearcase question. However, since I use clearcase I may be
able to help. First, I will assume that you are sharing a stream among
several developers. Take a look at the version tree of the files that
are not updated. They should already show the latest version of the file
loaded in the view. If someone has a file checked out, then there is not
a newer version until they check the file in, unless you allow
unreserved checkouts. If you allow unreserved checkouts, you will have
branching within the stream, I think, and I'm really not sure what needs
to be done to merge the changes in an unreserved checkout with a later
version of the  same file. If you want to allow unreserved checkouts,
you are better off using separate streams. If you still feel that this
is not functioning as expected I suggest contacting Rational/IBM for
support or posting to the CCIUG. You will find that the functionality of
Ant's <ccupdate> task is identical to running "cleartool update" on the
command line.
