 Hi All,

I am using Eclipse client for development but I am not working on Java projects. I am trying to rename a file in source control using eclipse client but there is no option on RTC eclipse client to do so. When I try to rename on Sandbox a new file is created loosing the history of the file and in pending changes I see that the file with old name is removed. I am aware that the rename is possible using Visual Studio, Shell and Web, but want to know whether there is an option available in Eclipse too.

Please help.

 The file must be visible in the Eclipse client. To do that, the file must be in an Eclipse project. The project can be any kind, the .project file can be artificially created and ignored in SCM. Does not matter how you do it.

You can load a component as a folder and let RTC create the .project file. You can import a loaded sandbox into Eclipse.
