FollowUp action


Andrea Ianni (1611916) | asked Jul 29 '10, 8:05 a.m.
hi all,
it's possible programmatically modify the value for a custom attributes or bult-in attributes (like summary, description,...) in a follow up action on Save Work Item (server) operation?

I have tried so:
	

IWorkItem wi = (IWorkItem) ((ISaveParameter) data).getNewState();
IWorkItem wiCopy = (IWorkItem) wi.getWorkingCopy();
wiCopy.setValue(MyCustomAttribute, null);
wis.saveWorkItem2(wiCopy, null, null);


but I have this exception:

com.ibm.team.repository.common.StaleDataException: Stale Data

:((((

Any suggestion?

Thanks

Andrea

We got a Stale Data exception if we use:
IWorkItem wi = (IWorkItem) data.getNewState();
IWorkItem wiFreshCopy = (IWorkItem) wi.getWorkingCopy();
to fetch the working copy of a work-item.
Instead, if we use:
IWorkItem wi = (IWorkItem) data.getNewState(); 
IWorkItem wiFreshCopy = (IWorkItem) wiServer.findWorkItemById(wi.getId(), IWorkItem.FULL_PROFILE, monitor).getWorkingCopy();
the update of the work-item works properly.
Thanks to Patrick Streule for his tip: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/40205/followup-action/40208
When you save an item more than once, you will need to make sure that you always have the latest state by: 
- either use the item returned by the save call 
- fetch the item from the repository again

Thanks for the answer.

Not sure if this can help, but I tend to not use the working copy manager, working copy and save anymore. Following https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ProgrammaticWorkItemCreation I use an WorkItemOperation to wrap the modification, similar to the creation in the examples presented in the link above.

My assumption is that it helps me sticking to the rules, even if they change better, since the framework parts is handled by the operation code.

This is the inner class implementing the operation. Please note the Load profile in the constructor.

    private static class WorkItemModification extends WorkItemOperation {

        private String fAttributeID;
        private Object fValue;

   
        public WorkItemModification(String attributeID, Object value) {
            super("Modifying Work Item",IWorkItem.FULL_PROFILE);
            fAttributeID=attributeID;
            fValue=value;
        }

        @Override
        protected void execute(WorkItemWorkingCopy workingCopy,
                IProgressMonitor monitor) throws TeamRepositoryException {
            IWorkItem workItem = workingCopy.getWorkItem();
            ITeamRepository teamRepository = (ITeamRepository)workItem.getOrigin();
            IWorkItemClient workItemClient= (IWorkItemClient) teamRepository.getClientLibrary(IWorkItemClient.class);

            IAttribute attribute = workItemClient.findAttribute(workItem.getProjectArea(),
                    fAttributeID, monitor);
            if(null!=attribute){
                if(workItem.hasCustomAttribute(attribute))
                    workItem.setValue(attribute, fValue);
            }
        }

This is how it gets called:

        IWorkItem workItem = workItemClient.findWorkItemById(id, IWorkItem.FULL_PROFILE, monitor);

        WorkItemModification operation = new WorkItemModification("anAttributeID","someValue");
        operation.run(workItem, monitor);

Andrea,

in general I'd say yes. It's looks like your code is run before the item is written to the repository, i.e., the item was modified and should be a working copy already. Try to manipulate and save the data you get from the operation directly.

HTH,
Jan.

Every time an item is saved, a new state is created. When you save an item, the newest state must be used, otherwise you get a StaleDataException.

When you save an item more than once, you will need to make sure that you always have the latest state by:

- either use the item returned by the save call
- fetch the item from the repository again

else {
IReportInfo problem = collector.createExceptionInfo(
"Work item is of type: "
+ sourceworkItem.getWorkItemType(),new Exception("Error"));
collector.addInfo(problem);
}
}
}
}

}





Thanks to all!
I solved so:


package com.ibm.rational.rtc.docreview;

import org.eclipse.core.runtime.IProgressMonitor;

import com.ibm.team.foundation.common.text.XMLString;
import com.ibm.team.process.common.IProcessConfigurationElement;
import com.ibm.team.process.common.advice.AdvisableOperation;
import com.ibm.team.process.common.advice.runtime.IOperationParticipant;
import com.ibm.team.process.common.advice.runtime.IParticipantInfoCollector;
import com.ibm.team.repository.common.TeamRepositoryException;
import com.ibm.team.repository.service.AbstractService;
import com.ibm.team.workitem.common.ISaveParameter;
import com.ibm.team.workitem.common.model.IWorkItem;
import com.ibm.team.workitem.service.IWorkItemServer;


@SuppressWarnings("restriction")

public class OpenDocDefect2 extends AbstractService implements IOperationParticipant {

boolean done = false;

private IWorkItem getFreshCopy(IWorkItem workItem, IProgressMonitor monitor) throws TeamRepositoryException {
return getWorkItemService().findWorkItemById(workItem.getId(), IWorkItem.FULL_PROFILE, monitor);
}

private IWorkItemServer getWorkItemService() {
return getService(IWorkItemServer.class);
}

public void run(AdvisableOperation operation,
IProcessConfigurationElement participantConfig,
IParticipantInfoCollector collector, IProgressMonitor monitor)
throws TeamRepositoryException {

Object data = operation.getOperationData();
IWorkItem workingCopy;

if (!done) {

if (data instanceof ISaveParameter) {

IWorkItem wi = (IWorkItem) ((ISaveParameter) data).getNewState();
if (wi != null)
{
IWorkItem wiFreshCopy = getFreshCopy(wi, monitor);

workingCopy = (IWorkItem) wiFreshCopy.getWorkingCopy();
String wiType = workingCopy.getWorkItemType();

if (wiType.equalsIgnoreCase("task") || wiType.equalsIgnoreCase("defect") )
{
try
{
IWorkItemServer wis = getService(IWorkItemServer.class);
workingCopy.setHTMLDescription(XMLString.createFromPlainText("BLABLABLA"));
done = true;
wis.saveWorkItem2(workingCopy, null, null);
}
catch (Exception ex){
ex.printStackTrace();
}
finally {
done = false;
}
}
}
}
}
}
}
