Alternatives to using Eclipse/VS for downloading an entire stream (ex: Web?)

From the web interface, all I can see is the ability to work with one file at a time (e.g., download, lock, etc, etc). Surely this can't be the case????

How do you extract/download all the files in the stream in one operation? Am I missing something?

The 'heart' of this question is around the ability to download source, but not be forced into using Eclipse or Visual Studio (since many users may not be 'developers').

In RTC 4.0.7 a feature was introduced to aid in this exact use case - the Rational Team Concert Shell for Microsoft Windows Explorer. With the RTC Shell integration, you can now source control files and folders from within Windows Explorer

(Note: As of 6.0.5, it is still not possible to download an entire stream via the web UI)

For batch operations like that, you need to use one of the other RTC
clients (Eclipse, Visual Studio, or scm command line).

Hi Geoff,

Thanks for clarifying. I was very surprised at that.

I'll be honest, I'm finding it extremely difficult to recommend RTC as a tool on my current project given the lack of an easy and useful non-Eclipse interface, something for non-devs.

why would a non-dev interested in the download of the code?

Thanks!

In our case, not everything is code, there's lots of documentation.
