Clearcase plugin does not tolerate double quotes in check-in comments

When I enclose part of the check-in comment in double quotes, the plugin miserably fails, reporting that an invalid commend was attempted to be executed.
Note: my plugin is currently configured to use command-line interface.
Apart from this rather minor issue, I have permanent problems with refactorings -- all files, affected by the refactoring, have to be checked out before the refactoring proceeds, otherwise I've got IDEA core exceptions.
Does anyone actively support CC plugin now?
Do IntelliJ people have plans to take over and include it in the core build?

Hello Sergei,

When I enclose part of the check-in comment in double
quotes, the plugin miserably fails, reporting that an
invalid commend was attempted to be executed.
Note: my plugin is currently configured to use
command-line interface.


I have the same issue, could you file a request here : http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/IDEACLEARCASE

Apart from this rather minor issue, I have permanent
problems with refactorings -- all files, affected by
the refactoring, have to be checked out before the
refactoring proceeds, otherwise I've got IDEA core
exceptions.


Which version do you use ? I have been using the plugin for quite a time and haven't experienced the same problem. Have you tried the Native and NewNative implementations ?

I am :), I'm currently working on a 1.38 version, you can check the planned changes here : http://jira.codehaus.org/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&mode=hide&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=priority&resolution=-1&pid=11081&fixfor=12422

I don't think that it's in Jetbrains plans to create a new Clearcase plugin or take over this one :)

Gilles,

Is there documentation that explains the difference between Native and
NewNative?

Thanks,

Ted

Native and NewNative implementations both use the clearcase java project (http://sourceforge.net/projects/clearcase-java). To make it simple, Native uses an older version, while NewNative uses the latest version of the library. NewNative was supposed to supersede Native but stability issues (quoting Vincent Mallet) prevented it to happen. I will try my best to find in which case these stabitity issues occur and try to fix them.

Hi

I was quite afraid of using native implementation, but I switched to it following your recommendation. And it helped -- the refactoring problems disappeared (or, at least, there are much fewer problems now).

Thank you for supporting the plug-in. The irony is that on my previous job I waited during 2.5 years for a stable Perforce plugin, and when Intellij finally shipped it with Idea5, I enjoyed it for half a year before changing job and being doomed to use Clearcase. Now I will have to wait another 2 years to get a stable CC plugin :)
