ClearCase for IntelliJ 5 ?

I'm wondering if there are any plans to update the ClearCase plug for Irida now JB is building release candidates?
The last discussion I recall on this was that the original developer doesn't have time to work on it, especially with all the refactoring going on in the VCS integration. But that must be stable now...

For the last many EAP builds, I found checkin/checkout works ok, mostly, unless you want to check out many files, in which case it insists on prompting you for a comment for each file. But the main problem is that 'Check In Project' doesn't work at all.
Do others see these problems?

I think it's time to bring it up to date. VCS API suppose to be stable now (we have a RC, aren't we), although quite complicated and completely undocumented 8-(

The problem is, that last published source is one and a half versions behind and original author has been quiet lately.
Jacques, are you still interested?
Vincent, what about you, do you still have those patches for 1.32? I am actually looking at the source code now and volunteering to help.

... and I might be able to help, though I haven't done any plug-in work before.

I'm also in the "not much time available" category right now. What I can
probably do though is package up the source of the current version and
put it on the plugin page.

I didn't want to do that in the past hoping that Jacques would eventually
have time to finish his refactoring and publish the official source.
Unfortunately
it looks like this is not going to happen anytime soon so hopefully Jacques
will not see a problem in the plugin being maintained off what we have.

I'll look into it this weekend.

Vince.

Go ahead Vince.
Anyhow, I am running out of excuse not to do the merge with your version since IDEA 5.0 is going to be released soon!

All,

I have found a few minutes to package up the sources and put them on the
wiki. While I was in there I fixed several problems that were happening with
IDEA 5.0.

I've uploaded 1.33.1 to the plugin manager (only for 5.0, builds 3431+). For
some reason though when the plugin manager installs it, the plugin ends up
being in <idea-plugins>/ClearcasePlugin/ClearcasePlugin causing IDEA not to
detect the plugin. If that's the case, just move the plugin one level up
(get rid of the middle 'ClearcasePlugin' directory).

The sources are on the
http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/ClearcasePlugin wiki page in
ClearcasePlugin-1.33.1-src.zip

Vince.

Why don't you simply remove the top-level "ClearcasePlugin" directory from
the ZIP archive? This should allow the plugin manager to unpack the plugin
correctly.

Hello,

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of the ClearCase
plugin: version 1.33.2

The update process removed the old ClearCasePlugin directory and put all
of the plugin files in the plugins/lib/ directory.

Following the update to 1.33.2, IntelliJ shows that I do NOT have the
ClearCase plugin installed.

You're welcome, thanks for the plugin :)

I didn't file a bug for the Plugin Manager because ClearcasePlugin was
the only plugin I could see the problem happening with. For example,
unitTest has the same directory structure and installs just fine.

I see you have removed the top level directory from the archive and now
Plugin Manager puts "lib" straight into the plugin directory.. So I'm just
not
quite sure how the PM is supposed to work anymore :)

Vince.

Ted,

try manually recreating the "ClearcasePlugin" directory and moving "lib"
under it. That should make IDEA happy again with the plugin.

The desired end result looks like:
]]>/ClearcasePlugin/lib/.jar;.dll

Vince.

thanks for updating plugin! (I was about to create my own but now I don't
need to bother)
Just tried and Ctrl-K works again.

p.s.
I noticed that ClearcasePlugin.zip contains only 'lib' directory, which
probably causing all the problems with automatic setup.

It is good to have a working Clearcase plugin, but there are still some issues to sort out.
My project includes paths that are outside of the Clearcase root. The 'Commit Project' dialog (Ctrl-K) lists files in those non-Clearcase directories.
I tried adding these directories or even individual files to the 'Exclude from VCS' list in the Version Control Configuration but that had no effect.

Thanks,

Sorry for the confusing advice - the top-level "ClearcasePlugin" directory
in the ZIP file is indeed required, and the middle "ClearcasePlugin" directory
appeared because of a bug in the IDEA plugin installer which will be fixed
in 5.0.1.

Bruce,

could you give a brief description of the directory layout of your
project? i.e. how many modules, which modules are under CC,
CC root, module's content roots and path to a file that shows up
as a problem.

Thanks,

Vince.


0
Comment actions Permalink

There are about 20 modules. All of the source files are under CC, except generated files (EJB interfaces and descriptors).

For the most part the modules each have two content roots, one under CC, one not ...
Content root under CC -
T:\vob_name\components\module_name\
src -- java source files
test -- unit tests
Content root not under CC -
c:\dev\components\module_name\generated\
src -- generated source files (EJBs)

When I open the Commit Project dialog, every file under all of the c:\dev content roots shows up along with the modified CC files. (I assume it is every file, but I didn't actually check that closely).

Hey Dmitri,

I uploaded another version with the ClearcasePlugin directory
back in and it seems just fine now with 5.0.1. Thanks!

Vince.

This seems to be partially fixed with ClearcasePlugin version 1.33.3. The Commit Project dialog is now correctly excluding files outside of the CC root. However, the Exclude from VCS option in the Version Control Configurations dialog seems to have no effect.
Note: I don't have any need for the Exclude from VCS option; I only used it to try and work around the other (now fixed) issue.

Thanks,
- Bruce

Hi Dmitry,

actually I lied in my previous reply and I believe 5.0.1 has the same issue
with the plugin. I've entered IDEA-4523 to that effect. One possible cause
for this problem is if the plugin is zipped using IDEA's 'Prepare plugin for
deployment' (more details in jira).

Thanks,

Vince.

In fact, the fix I mentioned was not included in the build 3448 - it will
be included in the final 5.0.1 build.

Anyway, it looks like the "Prepare plugin for deployment" can indeed be improved
to generate more correct ZIP files, so we'll look into this. Thanks for the
feedback!

Try 1.35.0, it should work better.

Hey Bruce,

The checkin dialog didn't seem to care much about excluded paths. 1.35.0
might be a little better at that.

Hi.

I'm using the latest plugin.

When trying to add package to sourcr contronl, i got this error message:


Thanks

It would be helpful if you could you give some details about your
configuration:
- is N:\Q\wf\core\base\factory already in CC?
- is N:\Q\wf\core\base\factory\kuku already in CC?
- how did you add the package to CC (through the Commit dialog or
otherwise?)
- were some files added anyways?
- are you using CommandLineClearcase or NativeClearcase?

Thanks,

Vince.

Thanks for the reply:

1. N:\Q\wf\core\base\factory is already in CC
2. I add kuku: select package factory->right click->new->package. In this stage i expected a dialog to ask me 'if to add this directory to CC', but this didn't happen.
3. To add it(kuku) to CC: i selected->right click->add file. and then i got the error.
4. I thought I'm doing it wrong, so i tried again (after deleting kuku. But this time i didn't choose 'add file' but 'commit project' Got the same error.

Please your advice.
Thanks
Boaz

Forgot to mention this:

1. I'm using NewNativeClearCase
2. Not sure if i understood your question: 'kuku' has no files under it when i try to add it to CC or commit project. I can add files under other directories with no problems.

Thanks again
Boaz

Hi,

Try using NativeClearCase, I believe the problem you're seeing
was fixed there.

You're using a dynamic view, right?

Thanks,

Vince.
