The viewtag is the name of the view. It must be a unique identifier. It also must take the form of a valid directory name. Here is some guidance on the config spec for a view:
- Each view gets a default config spec
- The default retrieves the most recent version on the main branch
- Can be modified using the "cleartool edcs" command
- Do not change while files are opened in the IDE
- Is case sensitive
In most simple projects, the development takes place on the main branch. The default config spec is taken from the file located at $ATRIAHOME/default_config_spec. CHECKEDOUT in a config spec allows modification of elements. And \main\LATEST allows creation of new elements. Note that a config spec can include other files.
I have more reading to do in my Clearcase Manual book. When I have read and studied the book some more, I will post again and share what I have learned.
