How to get enumeration value

silencehill wu (5022732) | asked Dec 26 '13, 12:00 p.m.

I am writing program  to get enumeration values by http client using OSLC-CM 2.0.

I want to know how I can get all id and name of enumeration by OSLC-CM 2.0 in java api.

For example:

      <enumeration attributeTypeId="bugtype" name="bugproblemtype">
           <literal id="bugtype.literal.l1" name="CA-用例缺陷"/>
           <literal id="bugtype.literal.l2" name="DOC-文档错误"/>
           <literal id="bugtype.literal.l3" name="EC-编码错误"/>


1. I want to get a map <id, name> of enumeration.

  AttributeTypeId ="bugtype"  or  name ="bugproblemtype" as argument. I want to get the map as below:

  <bugtype.literal.l1, CA-用例缺陷>, <bugtype.literal.l2, DOC-文档错误>, <bugtype.literal.l3, EC-编码错误>

2. I want to get a id by name

Input CA-用例缺陷 as argument, the id  bugtype.literal.l1 will be return.

Please give me an advise.

If you already have the IAttribute instance you can get the IEnumeration this way:

IWorkItemClient svc = (IWorkItemClient)teamrepo.getClientLibrary(IWorkItemClient.class);
IEnumeration<ILiteral> enum = (IEnumeration<ILiteral>)svc.resolveEnumeration(attribute, null);
List<ILiteral> literals = enum.getEnumerationLiterals();

Now, you said both HTTP (meaning REST?) and Java API, this is just the Java API method.

Thank for your answer. I am using java plain api, but not using RTC-SDK. The REST is the only way now I want to know. Do you have any idea?
