The ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) plugin for Eclipse allows developers to work in a ClearCase (CC) controlled environment. ClearCase affords an activity-based way of tracking changes in a code base that allows the user to keep track of their work via activity-managed change sets. The ClearTeam Explorer, when installed as a plugin to the Eclipse workbench, allows you to keep your activities organized when you are using ClearCase UCM.
We will assume that the ClearCase environment is one that has been set up with ClearCase UCM project and components by your CC admin. Also under assumption is that the development tool is Eclipse with the ClearTeam Explorer IDE plugins installed.
