Usage of RTC 4.0 Source control for plug-in development

Dnyanesh Markad (291825) | asked Nov 02 '12, 6:33 a.m.
 I have developed workflows for Project workflow, CR workflow and Defect workflow as per our requirement.

I want some automation between them by creating preconditions and follow up actions. 

I want to develop plug-ins using RTC 4.0 source control. How do I use it?

Hello Lauren,

Thanks for help. I have referred those sites you suggested. 
1. I have created project area e.g Sample_Area 
2. I have component in it say project_comp
3. I have loaded that component into repository workspace without creating any project
4. After that I have created simple plug-in project in above component that is project_comp
5. After that I have check-in-all and deliver the contents.
6. Now the plug-in project is on repository
7. Next I have created plug-in feature project on local workspace adding above created plug-in it.
8. Next I have created the update site project in same location with above created feature project in site project.
9. Now when I try to build site I am getting an error.
Because of character constraint error is given in next comment
