How elements are checked in from dynamic views

When you issue the checkin command from a dynamic view, the request is handled as follows:

  1. If the version that you checked out is not the latest version in the VOB, you are required to merge the changes in the latest version into the version checked out in your view. You are prevented from checking the file in until you perform the merge.
  2. It copies the contents of the view-private file to the VOB as a new version.
  3. It uses the version-selection rules of the config spec to select a version from the VOB. If the config spec selects a version other than the one you checked in, a message is displayed. Another version can be selected if, for example, your view selects versions based on labels or time rules.
  4. It removes the view-private file and provides transparent access to the version checked in to the VOB.
