Our company has recently started doing Eclipse plugin development, using the Eclipse IDE, and IBM Portal and IBM Lotus Expeditor. Our enterprise standard tool for version control is ClearCase version 18.104.22.168.
While ClearCase has worked well for J2EE development using Rational Software Architect, we are encountering challenges in using it as a toolset for Eclipse plugin development using IBM Lotus Expeditor. Specifically, due to the long lengths of the Eclipse plugin names and directory structures, developers are facing issues related to the Windows pathname limitation documented here:
What have other shops done to support the version control needs of Eclipse/Expeditor/Portal plugin development? Is ClearCase (Windows side) a workable solution for this kind of development? What version control tool do you use?
Thanks in advance.
