How can I load a file system into repository?


Jirong Hu (1.5k9280256) | asked Jul 29 '11, 4:51 p.m.
I want to load a complete file structure into RTC version control. It's not standard java project so I can't use import to import it from Project Explorer (let's I want to put some Excel files into).

How can I add this whole file structure into a RTC component?

Thanks
Jirong

You can either use the RTC command line, or in Eclipse, you can create a
dummy project above your file structure, and then remove the .project
file once you've put the file tree under source control.

Yes, the .project file is created by the Eclipse import project tool,
which makes that directory tree visible in the Eclipse client, so you
can use the "share project" operation to put it under RTC source control.

Yes, that is the command you would use from the command line to put a
directory tree under version control (and for which there is no need to
create .project files).

In the Eclipse GUI, it is right click on the root directory of the
imported directory tree, and select "Team -> Share_Project...".

Hi Geoff,

Is there a way to add file system through web client. I can add a single file through web client, but I could not find a way to add whole file system using web client.

2. Can I create a folder using eclipse client to load file system?

Thanks,

To my knowledge, there is no way to add a file tree to source control
using the web client.

Not sure what you are asking in your second question. In particular, we
use the term "load" to refer to the operation that creates files in a
local file area ("sandbox") based on the configuration of a repository
workspace. We use the terms "share" or "add to source control" for
putting files in the local file system under RTC source control. Did
you mean "load" or "share", or something else?

Geoff

My Second Question is, since web client is not allowing to share file tree to source control, using eclipse client will I be able to create a folder and add a set of file (file system) to source control.

Hope this is clear.

Yes, in Eclipse, once you have a tree of files exposed in one of the
Explorer views (package explorer, project explorer), you can right click
on the root folder, and "share" it to put it under source control. By
default, that puts that folder and all of its members (recursively)
under source control.

Geoff
