Is a user informed about what perpectives collegues are in


a k (2699) | asked Jan 05 '10, 11:56 a.m.
Does Team Concert tell you which perspective another co-worker is currently
in or which file the person is currently working on?
I am a student at the University of Toronto. I read a paper on the early
Jazz development called "Jazzing up Eclipse with collaborative tools", by
Li-Te Cheng and Steven Ross. It described this ability of users to view
which files colleagues were working on. One of the benefits of this was to
allow users to better determine the interpretability of that colleague and
hence aides users' decisions in interruption management. I am interested
in implementing this feature if it does not currently exist in Team
Concert. Can someone tell me if Team Concert tell you what perspectives colleagues are in or if they are logged onto the system, or what files they have open, in order to aid you in determining their level of interpretability?

Team Concert does not tell you which perspective another co-worker is
currently using in their Eclipse workspace, not does it tell you which
files are currently open in editors in their Eclipse workspace.

You can find out the change sets owned by a particular user, and the
open change sets can give you a clue as to what they are working on.
Also, you can find the work items that a user currently owns. In
particular, there are "show current work" and "show recent work"
operations you can run on a user. BTW, does anyone know what the query
is run by the "show recent work" operation?

The GUI will not show you what users are logged onto the system (don't
know whether there is an API call for that), but you can find out what
users are currently logged into the instant messaging server.

Cheers,
Geoff
