Javascript for RTC?


Ratan M (111) | asked Jan 20 '14, 4:09 a.m.
 Hi,

We are planning to move from ClearCase to RTC. We used to use Perl extensively for customize ClearCase (with cleartool interface offered by ClearCase). With RTC, is Javascript the language? Any response is appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi Ratan,

there are several customization areas and each of which can have different ways of going around.  So the more specific you are, the more easier to help you with the right answer.

At the Work Item Attribute level, there is definitely JavaScript based customizations that you can use, below link might help you :

For what is not achievable here can still be achieved leveraging one or more of :
REST APIs :
    Resource Oriented Work Item API with OSLC_CM 1.0
        https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ResourceOrientedWorkItemAPIv2
    Work Items Service provider for OSLC 2.0 CMSpecification:
        https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/WorkItemAPIsForOSLCCM20

Plain Java APIs :
RTC SDK :

hope it helps

 Can I do something like this in RTC?


If the Work Item summary field is less than 50 chars then the WI submission needs to be blocked?

Thanks!

In case of RTC SCM, you can still use Perl to wrap around command line interface. "cleartool" will be replaced to "scm" command in stead.

RTC also has the Command Line Client through which you can access the Source related artifacts.
https://jazz.net/library/article/1031 has examples on how you can use perl scripts to do some automation.
