Sharing large files with Rational Team Concert's SCM using the Rational Team Concert Eclipse Client on Microsoft Windows

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Is there a file size limitation to IBM Rational Team Concert's SCM using the Rational Team Concert Eclipse Client on Microsoft Windows?

Cause

Files with size > 4 GB are flagged as having unresolved / outgoing changes, after successful check-in deliver.


Since Rational Team Concert 2.0, there is no file size limitation. However, due to Eclipse bug 303245, after a successful check-in / deliver, a file with size larger than 4 GB is still flagged as having unresolved outgoing changes.

Answer

If using the Rational Team Concert Eclipse Client on Windows and you need to share a file bigger that 4GB we recommend you split the file into smaller pieces. For instance you can create a multi-part ZIP file instead of a single one.


Note: If Rational Team Concert Eclipse Clients on Windows are not being used, there is no need to avoid or split up large files.
