API JAVA : Find the type of workitem childs

Antoine LELEU (5012728) | asked May 02 '13, 5:55 a.m.

i try to get the type of the workitems child from a Parent.

i can find the references with this code :

IWorkItemReferences references = 
wiServer.resolveWorkItemReferences(currentWorkItem, null);
List<IReference> listChilds =      references.getReferences(WorkItemEndPoints.CHILD_WORK_ITEMS);

But i don't know how catch the type of this workitems child from the reference list.

Thanks for your help..

Maybe something like this :

for(IReference ref : listChilds) {
  if(ref.isItemReference()) {
    IItemReference refItem = (IItemReference) ref;
    IItemHandle itemHandle = refItem.getReferencedItem();
    IItem item = repo.itemManager().fetchCompleteItem(itemHandle, IItemManager.DEFAULT, null);
    if(item instanceof IWorkItem) {
