What is a StarTeam Change Package?
A Change Package is an object that contains a set of changes
applied to a target view. To create a Change Package, a user first
starts a VCM session, which acts as a staging area where changes
are defined, reviewed, and tested.
StarTeam has historically provided many features that support change management (CM), including
Now, StarTeam 2009 adds a comprehensive Change Package feature which allows you to track all changes made in a single commit using a Change Package object.
As a result of this new feature, VCM now uses Change Packages instead of VCM process tasks as it has in the past. Change Packages are a Change Management feature that improves StarTeam ability to manage and track updates. Change packages are an evolution of the View Compare/Merge (VCM) feature first introduced in the StarTeam 2006 release.
