Use IItemManager.fetchCompleteItem to fetch the item for any handle. The items carry the actual info; the handles are essentially just like pointers / URLs.

For example:

IContributorHandle contributorHandle = ...
IContributor contributor = (IContributor) teamRepository.itemManager.fetchCompleteItem(contributorHandle, IItemManager.DEFAULT, null); // should really provide a progress monitor in last arg for progress / cancelaton
String name = contributor.getName();


That's for client-side. For server-side, use IRepositoryItemService to fetch the item.

Steve,

there are built in operations for a few:


IWorkItem workItem= workingCopy.getWorkItem();
workItem.setHTMLSummary(XMLString.createFromPlainText(fSummary));
workItem.setCategory(fCategory);



Others you can lookup with the name or ID:


IAttribute customString = workItemClient.findAttribute(fProjectArea,
"com.ibm.rtc.ext.custom.test", null);

if(null!=customString && workItem.hasCustomAttribute(customString)){
workItem.setValue(customString, new String("Test"));
}


You can also get a list of attributes, but I seem to be unable to find it right now....

Hi,

at least there is a getCustomAttributes() operation.

Thanks for the reply! Maybe I should come out and tell you what I really want... I've queried for the work items associated with a build label and now i want to find the resolver of each of those work items. I know there is a getResolver() method that returns an IContributorHandle, but I'm not sure how to get what I need out of that object.

Thanks!
