Some files are never checked out on Cross-Platform Client via cache agent
· Product Name: StarTeam
· Product Version: 2005 R2
· Product Component: MPX, Server, Cross-Platform Client
· Platform/OS Version: Windows
When a StarTeam Cross-Platform Client is accessing a MPX enabled StarTeam Server, it is observed that not all files are being checked out from the cache agent.
There is a certain set of files that are always being checked out as normal SDK calls to the StarTeam server.
This happens when keyword expansion is turned on.
File caching on ASCII files is not supported on Cross-Platform Client when keyword expansion is turned on. Binary files would be checked out by the cache agent while ASCII files would be checked out as normal SDK calls.
At the moment, Bulk CheckOut (BCO) can be used to ensure all files utilize the cache agent.
An Enhancement Request #1087 has been submitted to include this ability for Cross-Platform Clients in future StarTeam releases.
