Error description

  • The IBM Rational ClearCase Remote Client (CCRC) Eclipse plugin
    fails to start the built-in Eclipse merge manager for
    non-trivial text file merges.
    
    Step to reproduce:
    
    1) From the CCRC preferences within Eclipse, change the default
    merge manager to the Eclipse built-in merge manager.
    2) Run a non-trivial merge.
    
    The Eclipse merge manager fails to launch and the merge
    operation fails.
    
    Workaround:
    Use the built-in CCRC merge manager instead of the Eclipse merge
    manager.
