Multiple streams trying to add the same file to the same RTC component

john liu (567) | asked Mar 26 '13, 3:05 p.m.

When multiple streams are adding the same file to the same location in the same RTC component, would RTC recognize these files as the same file (maybe different contents)?  What if the streams are adding the file to different locations in the same RTC component?    In other words, in these two situations, would RTC create one file in the component or mutliple files in the component?

Whenever you put a new file under source control, it creates a new RTC item.   If you then try to merge two streams that have different items with the same pathname, RTC will report a "conflict", which you resolve by merging, one of those items will be marked as "deleted", and the other will continue, with the merged text.
