IDevelopmentLineHandle and IdevelopmentLine


m sawires (1463268) | asked Aug 23 '09, 4:47 p.m.
Hello,
Sorry for this newbie question but I don't quite understand the usage of handle in RTC.
I can get all the developmentLineHandle by using:
IDevelopmentLineHandle[] developmentLinesArray = projectArea.getDevelopmentLines();

However, how can I get the corresponding IDevelopmentLine object. Handle carry states and so on but how should I use them?

The same applies to ITeamAreaHandle and ItemArea using
projectArea.getTeamAreas();

Thanks for your time.

Item handles are just references to an item in the repository. They carry
the item's id and an optional state id, as you've observed, but none of
the item's other data.

To get the full item, you have to fetch it from the repository. On the
client, this is done using the IItemManager API. You can get to the item
manager via the team repository, by calling ITeamRepository#itemManager().

Hope that helps.
