Can I Share a project to RTC source control by skipping the Repository Workspace?

Is it possible to share a project to RTC source control directly to the stream or should I have always to use a Repository Workspace as a mid step? Is it possible through the eclipse client? only through the SCM command line?
Suppose I am and administrator in charge of that duty task instead of a PM or a Developer. I guess there is
no reason for me to create Repository workspaces for my for every project to be shared.

Thanks in advance!

No matter what roles you have, there is no reason to create a new workspace for every project that you want to share ... just re-use the same workspace.  And even if you could share a project directly into a stream, I wouldn't recommend doing so.  I would recommend always doing a personal build on the imported code (or at least a quick visual inspection) before delivering it to the stream.

No, it is not possible. With one exception which I will explain at the end.

as you can see in the diagram in the Jazz SCM FAQ, physical files and folders reside in a sandbox (a loaded repository workspace). The act of "check in" means tying these project files / folders to one or several change sets. This is when they get uploaded to the server. Delivering change sets from repository workspace to stream is then only pushing logical bits on the server. So whether using Eclipse, Visual Studio, scm command line or the new Windows Explorer integration, you always need to have a repository workspace to check in stuff from local disk to RTC SCM. Some UI make it easier to create / use a repository workspace than others.

The noteable exception to this is the web client. In order to facilitate sharing documents the web client allows to check in single files directly to a stream.

For the task you described, I would recommend looking into the new Windows Explorer integration. If you look through the screen shots in the usage guide, does this fit with your tasks?

If this answer was helpful, please mark it as accepted.

Is "Shared repository workspace" available in 4.0 ?
