8 useful ClearCase Views Commands

Views in ClearCase are similar to a 'workspace' or 'working directory' concept from other source versioning system.   Typically developers would have more than one view for reference or comparison.   A special feature is the use of dynamic view, which provides real-time versions on the working directory.   However the trade off is the high usage of network bandwidth compared to the snapshot view.
