I have been trying to find a way to query Source control and then capture the location and contents of a file, in my project, so that I can use an XML Parser and extract its contents.

I need the following:

- How to connect to the correct Stream
- How to connect to the file in source control
- How to extract its contents as a string or Object so I can parse it.

Thanks !

Dan C.

 Hi Daniel,
you can read the section "Reading" in my blog entry for that:

Finding the "correct" stream / querying a stream still has to be implemented by you. In my example the stream and component was known to me.
