This is no different to modifying the work item. You do it in a WorkItemOperation
	private static class WorkItemInitialization extends WorkItemOperation {

		private String fSummary;
		private ICategoryHandle fCategory;

		public WorkItemInitialization(String summary, ICategoryHandle category) {
			super("Initializing Work Item");
			fSummary = summary;
			fCategory = category;
		}

		@Override
		protected void execute(WorkItemWorkingCopy workingCopy,
				IProgressMonitor monitor) throws TeamRepositoryException {
			IWorkItem workItem = workingCopy.getWorkItem();
			workItem.setHTMLSummary(XMLString.createFromPlainText(fSummary));
			workItem.setHTMLDescription(XMLString.createFromPlainText(fSummary));
			workItem.setCategory(fCategory);

			List tags = workItem.getTags2();
			tags.add("NewTag");
			workItem.setTags2(tags);
		}
	}
You add the comment in the execute section. You run it this way.
WorkItemInitialization operation = new WorkItemInitialization("Test", category);
IWorkItemHandle handle = operation.run(workItemType, monitor);

Hi,

 I tried to follow above code,but the comment is added to "Tags" field in the created workitem.
Below is my code.

IWorkItem workItem = wc.getWorkItem();

            workItem.setCategory(category);
            workItem.setTarget(fetchIterations(pa, repo, monitor, count, sheet));
            workItem.setOwner(input.getAlmOwner(pa, count, sheet, repo));
            workItem.setTags("CS-CRM");

            List<String> tags = workItem.getTags2();
            tags.add("New Comment");
            workItem.setTags2(tags);

This helped me.
IComments comments = workItem.getComments();
            IComment newComment = comments.createComment(repo.loggedInContributor(),
                    XMLString.createFromPlainText("New Comment"));
            comments.append(newComment);


I am able to add comments.
Thanks!
