Error description

  • In IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer (CTE), you cannot perform
    configuration management operations on your linked resources
    even when they are correctly linked in from the same
    project/view. When you select any of the  linked resources, none
    of the configuration management  functions are available in the
    IDE.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1) Create a java project in source control with a package
    'a.b.c.d'
    2) Add the project to source control.
    3) In a ClearCase vob using the same view as the project in step
    2, create a java file at an arbitrary location but ensure that
    it's package designation in the java file is a.b.c.d
    4) Load the project you created that is now under source control
    into eclipse and click on the project root
    5) In eclipse perform file-?new file and navigate to the bottom
    of the package a.b.c.d
    6) Push 'advanced' and check 'link to file in the file system'
    7) In the chooser, navigate to the file you created in step 3
    using the same view as the project, select the java file and
    click 'ok'
    8) click finish
    
    Requirements:
    
    The  vobs used for the project and file must be mounted
    for web views and the target file must be loaded.
