Error description

  • When using IBM Rational ClearCase omake to build applications,
    timestamp-only rebuild decisions are handled incorrectly.
    
    If a source file is changed, only the target that directly
    depends on the 'newer' file is rebuilt. Any targets that
    depended on the rebuilt target are not rebuilt.
    
    This behavior happens:
    - In a dynamic view when using the -L (Disable config
    management) option.
    - In a snapshot view or non-ClearCase location, since
    configuration lookup is not possible in those locations.
    
    Workaround:
    1) Do not use this option in a ClearCase Dynamic View.
    2) Use a non-ClearCase build tool when not in a Dynamic View.
