Build Completion notification through Plain Java APIs

Reji GL (1136) | asked Jan 16 '14, 5:39 p.m.
I am trying to build a RTC Jazz client, that would get notified when a build is completed.
The intention is to have a client listening for completion of the build and trigger a local script.

Can you please let me know, if there are any listeners that can be implemented and registered against the RTC server ? I did find the APIs that can used as en extension for RCP Client. But I am looking for Plain Java APIs, if available.

Some parts of the Build API are discussed here:

I think you need to listen to an RSS Feed or poll the build API. I don't think you can use event handlers in the client. The Client does not get build events.

 Thanks for responding.

The solution that you have mentioned was something I was thinking of as a last option. I am not keen in implementing a solution that keeps on polling the server for build completion status. Although I could optimize the polling interval based on the average build duration.

I am interested in exploring the option mentioned in the following link

The downside of this approach is that this solution is not a standalone one, and will be a plugin to Mometics. But I think I am fine with that. 

Please, do let me know your thoughts on this.

Hi Reji,
You can write a post build participant that will trigger events when builds complete.  The participant would live in the build engine.  More information is available in this blog post:

I am attaching the flow of events that I am expecting.

RTC build notification

I am least interested in making a change in the build definition or at build engine (Not all users have access to build engine)

Triggering a local script seems a bit tricky as I don't think the build engine would have access to your local machine.  If your local script can be accessed remotely, you could kick it off in your build participant.  You could use build properties to configure exactly which script gets kicked off if it's not always in the same location for every machine.
