connector tag transformer problem

Joerg Moeller (9677) | asked Feb 23 '11, 5:07 a.m.

I'm trying to setup a connectro to an external cvs repository. Basically the code runs fine but I have some problem when using tag fields.

I tested my code using the "Tags" attribute from the defect workitem. I set up the sync rule to use the workitem tags tranformer and tags were compiled in a space seperated string. So no problems here.

Now I've changed to use customized process of my customer, having a custom attribute of type tag in the defect workitem and I get this exception:

java.lang.ClassCastException: cannot be cast to java.lang.String

I don't have a clue what actually the problem is. Any pointers would be appreciated.

I haven't used tags yet, altho looking at the InteropWorkitemManager source, tags in RTC are a comma separated list of text strings (no spaces allowed)
but the source in the tags transformer, located in
shows the tags in clearquest as '\n' separated

I think I would not use the transformer, and just make them comma separated
