Creating Stream from existing code base


Bhadri Madapusi (181271) | asked Aug 13 '07, 2:53 p.m.
Hi,

I am a new jazz user. We want to create a pilot using Jazz for our Team. We have our source code currently in CMVC. We want to first move the source in the CMVC into Jazz SCM stream. Is there a way to import the source into Jazz SCM stream without using check-in and deliver mechanism.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Bhadri.

Going through posts and answering messages with 0 responses, part of being a good Samaritan ...

I'm sure you can't get stuff directly from CMVC, and the only way that's going to happen is if an IBMer, outside of Jazz, creates some sort of tool. I know that eventually I'm going to need that functionality, so it's something that I would be interested in too.

I see that you can import "Projects from CVS" and "CVS Change Set Archive"; I imagine those are your choices right now.

Thinking more, I guess the question is "what do you actually need to import?" I imagine it would be easy to just grab the current snapshot of everything in CMVC and dump it into Jazz SCM; however that would remove all ownership and history. Would that be good enough for a pilot? And if not, what would be the minimum metadata you need in the SCM?

Thanks for the reply. The following meta-data would be of interest to me change sets (change history), components, owner and release.

Hi Bhadri,

Mark Parry is working on a CMVC connector (using the SCM Connector
technology that is being built for a CC Connector, aka "Jazz Views for
ClearCase"). Since he's just getting started, it isn't something you
could use today, but just wanted to make you aware that the CMVC import
issue is being actively worked on.

Cheers,
Geoff
