RTC 3 : API description


eric nolmans (281511) | asked Nov 21 '11, 6:21 a.m.
Hi,

Where can I found a full description of the RTC3 API?
I try to write a java application that compare a stream and a specific snapshot.

Thanks

Eric

there is no full description like you seek.. in the latest release 3.0.1.1 just out, there is a new Javadoc package that can help a lot.

In the build view, you can select a build result and compare the contains of this build with lastest in Stream.


By doing this I get in the Change Explorer view a list of differences


Is it possible to get the same list using the API?

Yes, it's possible, but the RTC API is not exactly simple or straightforward. If someone were to give you the answer you would probably not understand how to maintain or enhance it for your needs.

I highly recommend you start off by learning about ITeamRepository and how the API works. You will actually find that once you understand the overall structure that there's enough information in these forums to answer your question.

Also, for SCM operations, you should always first look to the "scm"
command line tool, to see if that would satisfy your requirements. And
if it doesn't, please file a work item describing what you need to do,
so that the scm command line tool can be enhanced to meet your needs.

Cheers,
Geoff

that there is enought information in these forums I agree.
But it is not easy to find the right information.

Now if IBM/RTC delivers an API ready to use. It 'll be nice to get more informations like sample of code, red books,...
