check the following code to get Workitem type filed id and summary.

    public String getWorkitemTypeFieldValue(IWorkItem workItem,String CustomStringAttributeID)
        WorkItemResolverUtil  resolver = new WorkItemResolverUtil();
        IWorkItem Item = null ;
        Object obj = null;
        try {
            obj = resolver.getAttributeValue(workItem,CustomStringAttributeID);
        } catch (TeamRepositoryException e1) {
        if (obj instanceof IWorkItemHandle) {
         try {
            Item = resolver.resolveWorkItem((IWorkItemHandle) obj);
        } catch (TeamRepositoryException e) {
        String value = "";
          value = Item.getId() + Item.getHTMLSummary().getPlainText();
         return value;
