I am able to set the summary and description. I need to set the priority bt it gives me:

ERRORS:

ALso i cannot typecast it to literal to i attribute type.
please help me

 The code is pretty unreadable.


You seem iterate all work item attributes and try to access that as an enumeration? That will not work. You will have to check if they are actually enumerations or something else.

Since you are a beginner, provide the attribute ID where you know it is an enumeration, same for the a
other attributes you look for. Also focus on one attribute first to get working code as described in https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/01/02/working-with-work-item-attributes/ . Use instanceof to test for types/interfaes
    Object value = workItem.getValue(customString);
    if (value instanceof String) {
        String attributeValue = (String) value;
        // do something with the value
    }

    </pre>
</div>

PS: you have to look up the attribute ID's for the internal attributes in the Web Admin UI, and not in the Eclipse UI.

I think you should do some reading instead of creating code. I already provided you with https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/01/02/working-with-work-item-attributes/ which also links to:  https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/manipulationg-work-item-enumeration-values/

Most links I provided you have downloadable code that works (for me at least) to deal with enumerations. 

My code does not use the WorkingCopyManager but a WorkItem Operation as explained in https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/understanding-and-using-the-rtc-java-client-api/ .

So I would suggest to do some downloading, reading and experimenting with existent code. 

The work item command line code deals with all the problems you are facing too, but it is more complex and maybe looking into to special blog posts might be more effective.
