 Essential Commands

Welcome to the Learn ClearCase Course!

Whether you already are using ClearCase on UNIX or NT systems or will be soon, this course will teach you the theory and operation of the essential ClearCase commands you need as an engineer.

What Will I Learn?

This course will teach you how to:

  • Create views and configuration specifications
  • Create and update NT snapshot views
  • Check files out and in
  • Merge files that two people have modified
  • Create a side branch for your project
  • Merge to and from a side branch
  • How to access from NT systems views and VOBs hosted on UNIX systems

You'll learn many essential concepts that fit together in a coherent methodology for using ClearCase that will work with both Unix and NT systems. You'll learn about the entire lifecycle of a project.

This course includes clear, task-oriented procedures you can follow to perform all typical ClearCase activities from project creation through final integration.

This course does not cover system-level ClearCase administration or advanced branching and merging techniques and analysis. It also does not cover ClearMake or ClearQuest. What it does do is give you the big picture about ClearCase and Configuration Management, written by an engineer for engineers.
