I already found out how to get IFileItem objects for all of my source files. Now I am interested in history/changeset elements (like "lscm history" does on the command line).

How do I access corresponding change set information from an IFileItem?

Alternatively, where can I find the API description of the RTC 2 SDK?

I downloaded the SDK but there is no documentation and no java doc embedded?

Hello. How can I get IFileItem objects for all of my source files from a repository? I'm looking for the solution into the api but I can't find out how to do that using the Java Plain Client Libraries. Thanks

There is some JavaDoc for the Plain Java Client Libraries in the latest releases. The SDK has comments and source code. Follow https://jazz.net/library/article/784 and the Extensions workshop to set up your development environment and then you can look into the code. That is what I think is available.

Thanks - I downloaded a newer SDK version and was finally able to extract the JavaDoc myself.

Now I found a way to access the history (and change sets) of a file item.

Next step is to access a work item associated to any of these change sets. But after some hours of googling and scrolling through the JavaDocs I could not find a way to receive them.

What is the correct way to access the workitem object connected to a changeset?

Hi Florian,

Hi,

I don't have the complete solution at hand, but these were basically the steps:
- Use a BaselineConnection to get a) the changeHistory and b) the RootFolderHandle (via BaselineConnection.configuration, I think...)
- Use the RootFolderHandle (b) to extract the IVersionableHandle (c) for each file
- Use the changeHistory (a) with a versionableHandle (c) to receive change sets

From here I used the LinkManager to get links of type "com.ibm.team.filesystem.workitems.change_set" - these can be used to get the workitem(s) connected to change sets.

And yes, I learned to hate the API and am happy to not have to use RTC and Jazz anymore...

Hi  Florian,

Many thanks for your replay! You give me a hope..
CAn you provide a more detailed code? I don't understand this: "Use the changeHistory (a) with a versionableHandle (c) to receive change sets" - i didn't find any option like that.
Thanks again for your help.
