As part of my work, I need to Hijack config files quite often. Is there a machanism for doing this from the Eclipse GUI ?
Currently the only way I have found to do it is to revert back to Clearcase explorer, which is obviously a little inconvienient ?
If there is not a mechanism for this in the plugin, would it make a suitable feature request ?
I am relatively new to Clearcase (long time CVS developer) so my request here may not make sense to more experienced users. Happy to be shot down should that be the case !
you can simply hit Alt-Enter to open the properties on the file you're looking at and remove the read-only attribute, just like you would do with the windows explorer, and start working on it...
that's what hijacking the file means :) (stop the file from being synchronized with an update)
Alt-ENTER does'nt work on multiple files… any ideas?
Is it not possible to hijack files using the clearcase menu? Select the files that you want to hijhack. And select the hijack in the menu.
