Description
There are a few issues with branched views in Starteam that this application repairs.

1) If you have files shared between folders and then create a branching view, the files are shared in a non-obvious way. (They get linked to the corresponding file in the parent view, rather than mirroring the relationship from the original view to the new view).

2) If you share a file from between folders in a branched view, the default configuration is weird (floating and branched).

3) If you share a file from a branched view back to its parent (non-branching view), the default is not to branch - which is not sensible.

Java source code is supplied, as well as detailed description of the problem, and some idea of how it was fixed.
