The FlexDeploy ClearCase plugin makes it easy to interact with source code stored in the IBM Rational ClearCase UCM repository. Customers need to provide location of ClearCase teamapi folder as plugin uses a Java based API to interact with ClearCase UCM. FlexDeploy allows users to configure ClearCase UCM repository connection details in instances which are shared by various projects. The project specific configuration is stored separately in the projects which allows for easy export and label operations during workflow executions.

To use ClearCase with FlexDeploy, you will need to copy some jar files from your ClearCase server or ClearTeam Explorer installation into your server lib folder.

  • Find all jar files in the folder of your ClearCase server or ClearTeam Explorer installation, and copy them to the FlexDeploy server lib folder.
