When trying to check in a file into clearcase, if cleartool responds with a prompt
i.e. "cleartool error", the plugin blocks eclipse and it is unable to proceed.

  • Hi,

    Has file been changed?
    Can you attach the log file from eclipse?

  • Hi,

    yes, the file has changed, and the error log is clean, its not so much an error but it looks like its waiting for input from the user.

    When i run cleartool with the same commands, i get the following prompt:

    Loading "project\file.xml" (2853 bytes).
    cleartool: Error: Label type not found: "DEV_LABEL".
    Label 'XYZ' stored in N:\trigger_label_vieww6.txt is not valid. Not using it.

    Do you want to apply a label? [y=apply, n=no label, c=create new label]

    Cheers,
    Alex

     
  • Hi Alex,

    Do you have a trigger in clearcase that tries to label file at checkin? To me it gives an error message when you try to checkin a file since it connot find the DEV_LABEL.

  • Hi,

    I see the problem. It might be possible to open up a window with the information and the problem I see is more providing the input to the process expecting it. I will look into it for you.

  • I need to find a was to get a hold of the executing cleartool process for the ci command. It is a bit tricky so I hope that you can wait....
