Subject RE: Writing ANT file using Starteam.
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2007 20:05:52 GMT
Out of the box, Ant is a command line utility and therefore does not
support dropdowns.  You may be interested in a third party addition to
Ant such as the AntForms project which adds GUIs (see:
http://antforms.sourceforge.net/).  Also, you will likely have to write
a custom task to retrieve the list of projects in a repository and
another to retrieve the list of views of a given project.  These tasks
would use the StarTeamSDK.

In most setups, it usually makes sense to have a separate build.xml for
every View.  Then the use uses the StarTeam client to checkout the code
form whichever view required and runs the build for that given view
(rather then building the logic of selecting project/view into a single
monolithic build.xml).

I try to be more clearly with small an example:
I have 3 view in Starteam: View1, View2 , View3.
Each view has labels, f.e:
	View1: Label1, Label2, Label3
	View2: Label10, Label20
	View3: Label11, Label12, Label13,Label4.

Once the build.xml will run in order to build any view, it should
connect to ST and retrieve all entire views (View1, View2, View3) in
dropdown so the user can choose for which view to run the build -
Variable $ST_VIEW will initialize with that selection.
Then he will get the relevant labels that belong to that view, f.e:  
	Foe View3 he will get dropdown with Label11, Label12, Label13,
and Label4.
Variable $ST_LABEL will initialize with that selection.
And so on...

Finally, the build.xml wills checkout files to the build according the
user requirement based on:  $ST_VIEW and $ST_LABEL.

I have user and master user on Starteam.

That it :-)
I hope it's now clearly enough. 

Thanks,
Yona.

Please clarify a litte of what you are trying to accomplish.  Are you
thinking of a web page that has the drop downs with a submit button that
when clicked calls ant on the server to check the files out?  Or are you
talking about an Ant script that is run on th euser's machine and
presents a gui with dropdowns?  For the second, you might as well just
have the user install the StarTeam client.

Hi,

 

I'm writing build.xml file that checkout files from Starteam.

I would like enabling option to get STView and STLabel online from the
user, mean:

*         Present (online) to the user all entire views in the ST (By
drop list or something like that).

*         Get input to ${ST_VIEW} variable.

*         Present the relevant labels for that view.

*          Get input to ${ST_LABEL} variable.

*         Checkout files from ST according to ${ST_VIEW} and
${ST_LABEL}.

 

Please advice how I can implement it by ANT code.

I found an example of what I need:  Jera, but I don't know how to get
the relevant information's from Starteam. 

 

Thanks,

Yona.
