Clarity PPM On Premise

Issue/Introduction

We noticed that the Clarity install.jar is much smaller for 15.8.1 than for 15.8 –

15.8.1 jar is 3.3 GB

15.8.0 jar is 6.3 GB.

Is that correct? If so, why is 15.8.1 so much smaller?

Environment

Release : 15.8.1

Component : CA PPM INTEGRATIONS & INSTALLATIONS

Resolution

The reason is that the Clarity versions are cumulative and contained in the package. 

15.8.0 contains 9 versions starting from 15.4.0

15.8.1 contains 4 versions starting from 15.7.0

 

This accounts for the difference in size. The install.jar is correct and functional.
