My company uses ClearCase for their versioning system. This is my first experience with ClearCase, and I'm trying to figure things out. The View (or VoB, don't know which one I'm actually accessing) is hosted on a Unix server running Solaris 8. I log into that server using Cygwin, by either starting an x server connected to the server (for graphical applications), or just by using telnet or SSH. Once I'm in, I run the following commands:
ct setview <viewname>
Then I can either just browse the source, or usually (assuming I connected using the X server), I just run
to bring up the ClearCase GUI.
Not much of this is relevant to my situation, except that it hopefully should give you enough information about how I connect that you might be able to answer my question. What I want to do is be able to access this ClearCase View through my Windows machine directly, preferably by mounting the view to a drive letter. I have Rational ClearCase and a bunch of ClearCase tools installed on my Windows machine, I just can't figure out how to start that view, and mount it to a drive, because it's located on a Unix system. Is this possible? CAN I access this code from my Windows machine directly? The reason I want to do this is because I want to develop the code using Visual Studio for C++, for the IDE feature-set. (Visual Studio is my preferred IDE)
By the way, my ClearCase Explorer version on my Windows machine is 2003.06.10+
Thanks in advance!
