Command Line Interface for Jazz


anand sankaran (3142) | asked May 07 '08, 9:31 a.m.
For those of us who use non-eclipse based editors, does Jazz provide a command line interface or a stand alone GUI to use?

If yes, can you please point me to some documentation?

Hi Anand,

Jazz does provide a command-line interface. It's designed primarily
for scripting and automation, but it should be usable for day-to-day
development as well.

As to documentation: that's underway. Our doc guy will post here if
there's a publicly available URL for the docs. In the meantime, you can
try downloading the client and looking in the jazz/scmtools/eclipse/
directory. If you run 'scm help', you should get a rough idea of the
tool's capabilities. Running 'scm help <cmdname>' will provide you with
skeletal docs on command usage.

You can find the command line help in the RTC Help system under

Managing change and releases > Managing source code in Jazz > Using Jazz
source control command line tools

The public infocenter on jazz.net is quite out of date.
