Subject RE: Anyone writing a StarTeam Task?
Date Mon, 10 Jul 2000 13:58:14 GMT
Well, there are 2 options:

1) Simply use an exec task to spawn the stcmd, just as you would CVS or VSS.
2) Use the StarGate API, which would allow in-VM invocation of the client
(it comes with the SDK) rather than an exec task.

Either method would require:
a) the ant build script to search for stcmd or the SDK in the system
PATH/CLASSPATH and either build or not build the task, since it to be an
optional tag
b) The system to have a StarTeam license for the client or SDK (client is
more probable). If you need the task, you must have a license :)

I am considering:
a) Building the task as an exec task to prevent the SDK dependency
b) Building the task as generic as possible to allow check-in,check-out,etc.
In other words, make it mirror the command line args
c) Later, build some additional tasks for specific check-in, check-out

Thoughts, comments?

This could be wonderful!!!!
Please do it!

But AFAIK StarTeam's client-side Java API is not free. How will you
distribute it?
