Chapter 13. Deploying ClearCase > Boxes, Packing Tape, and Some Heavy Lifting: ...

Boxes, Packing Tape, and Some Heavy Lifting: Moving to ClearCase

One of the best examples of Murphy's Law in motion involves moving to a new house. Whatever can go wrong will go wrong. You may spend weeks preparing, boxing, and labeling your belongings from each room in the house, throwing out the old junk, cataloging everything, taking care to package fragile items with the utmost care—and yet, somehow, things get lost, broken, or damaged. Sometimes the best way to deal with change is to be prepared for the dent in the table, the spot on the couch—and have a plan for dealing with these issues once you are established in the new house.

If you want to make your move from one of the free configuration management systems to ClearCase as seamless as possible for your development team—basically, to the point where they don't see a difference at all—you are dreaming. Conversion to a new configuration management system can be a life-altering experience for some of your engineers. It requires them to think differently about their development. In essence, you will be affecting life as they now know it.
