Error description

  • The 'Undo Hijack' option when called from the IBM Rational
    ClearCase SCM Adapter 7.6.x in a snapshot view does not work
    correctly. When invoked, the content of the file remains the
    same in both IBM Rational Application Developer (RAD) and
    Eclipse, even though the Explorer view updates the icon for the
    element, disables the action 'Undo Hijacked' and enables
    'Hijack' in the Team menu.
    Also the file is still marked as hijacked when looking at it in
    the IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer (CTE), ClearCase Explorer
    and the command line.
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Access ClearCase resources in a snapshot view using the SCM
    Adapter 7.6 integrated into an Eclipse shell
    2. Hijack a file from Eclipse and make a change
    3. Select 'Undo Hijack' Team option on that file and note the
    Hijack icon goes away
    4. Open the file and note the changes have not reverted to the
    version committed to the VOB.
    WORKAROUND:
    Perform the undo hijack using ClearCase Explorer or command
    line. You can also perform an update of the element from the
    Eclipse integration, where the hijack will be found and you will
    be prompted to resolve it.
