Assume I have an IVersionableHandle <b:ab332a6966> and </b:ab332a6966> its associated IConfiguration context: what's when best way to determine the path name of the referenced IVersionable?

I'm currently walking the tree with getParent (see code below) but I'm wondering if there's a better way.

  private String getCanonicalName &#40;IVersionableHandle versionable, final IConfiguration context&#41; throws TeamRepositoryException &#123;


final Deque&lt;String&gt; path = new LinkedList&lt;String&gt; &#40;&#41;;

while &#40;versionable != null&#41; &#123;

final IVersionable currentItem = context.fetchCompleteItem &#40;versionable, getMonitor &#40;&#41;&#41;;

final String name = currentItem.getName &#40;&#41;;
if &#40;name.length &#40;&#41; &gt; 0&#41;
path.push &#40;name&#41;;

versionable = currentItem.getParent &#40;&#41;;
&#125;

final StringBuilder result = new StringBuilder &#40;&#41;;
for &#40;final Iterator&lt;String&gt; segment = path.iterator &#40;&#41;; segment.hasNext &#40;&#41;;&#41; &#123;

result.append &#40;segment.next &#40;&#41;&#41;;

if &#40;segment.hasNext &#40;&#41;&#41;
result.append &#40;'/'&#41;;
&#125;

return result.toString &#40;&#41;;
&#125;

I think the IConfiguration#locateAncestors method will give you the path of the versionable.

Awesome, that worked, thanks.

In our present SCM system "ancestor" has an entirely different meaning so I didn't even look at that method; that's what I get for viewing RTC through the lens of what we're already used to...

Hi,
I'm trying to do the same on a postop delivery server-side plugin.
How can I obtain IConfiguration?

Thanks,
Andrea
