How to make project area updateable

Martin Geisler (21113) | asked Nov 15 '12, 9:41 a.m.


i'm using in eclipse java environment to got a programming interface to the jazz repository.

I want update existing project area from latest process template where the project area derived from.

I'm using following interface to get information from connected team repository:

IProcessItemService.isProjectAreaUpdateable(myProjectArea, monitor)

This function should tells me whether myProjectArea is updateable(true) or not (false).

This function always returned false for my projectArea's.

So my question is:

How to make project areas updateable?

Whether or not the project area is "updateable" is not a property of the project area itself.

There is an eclipse extension point " ", a project area will be updateable if there exists a projectAreaUpdater that specifies that it updates the process template that matches the project area's IProjectArea.getProcessDefinition().getProcessId() .

This is the extent of my knowledge, it looks like whoever provides the process template will also need to provide an updater for it for a project that uses it to be updateable.

Hi Andrew,

thank you for the quick answer. But now i got further questions related to your comment.

How i can create a projectAreaUpdater for an specifc process template and how i can register it?  Does there any sample exist to create project area updater?

I assume that i must register the updater because the method below :

IProcessItemService  getUpdateableProjectAreas(...,...)

Returns all project areas in the array of projectAreaHandle for which there is a project area updater registered.
