How can I retrieve files from a changeset using the Java API?


Andy Jewell (24225469) | asked Mar 09 '17, 7:51 p.m.

I am trying to extract the files of a changeset using the Java API to the filesystem but haven't found a single reference in the forum for doing that.  Is the approach supposed to be to load a workspace and then copy out the files from the paths contained in the changeset?  Or is there a way to directly extract the files?  I seem to remember seeing something about the latter method but I can't find anything.


Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Here some clues: Getting an IFileItem

            IChangeSet changeSet = (IChangeSet) changeSetIterator.next();
            if (changeSet == null) {
                // It's possible that we don't have read access to this change
                // set?
                continue;
            }
            for (IChange change : (List<ichange>) changeSet.changes()) {
                IVersionableHandle after = change.afterState();
                IVersionable item = (IVersionable) scmService.fetchState(after,
                        null, null);
                if (item instanceof IFileItem) {
                    IFileItem fileItem = (IFileItem) item;
