Subject RE: [PATCH] Starteam Checkout
Date Mon, 06 Nov 2000 22:03:28 GMT
There are two problems to the StarTeam checkout-task (that's why I built my
own instead, of using this one):
1) The way of specifying all the different properties of the connection is
not very idiomatic to StarTeam, one usually specifies the connection using a
StarTeam-URL that has a general form. (Don't have it in my head but I can
look it up if you like.)
2) The StarTeam-API has a bug that shows up when you check out a large
number of files. It has to do with executing the "touch" command. It's much
better to use the checkOutAsInputStream (or whatever the name was of that
method). Basically the check-out ends with a core-dump from the VM, which is
a bit annoying... :-) In Java 1.2 there is an API for changing last-modified
date. (But it won't work in 1.1 of course.) You might want to provide an
option for that (or make it the default, or something).

Subject: Re: [PATCH] Starteam Checkout


could you please rewrite your patch in a way that it compiles on JDK
1.1 (no HashMap please). And then I'd suggest to make
setAppendViewName take a boolean argument.

Finally I'm a little hesitant to commit a patch I cannot test myself,
any Starteam users apart from Samuel here that could check that it
works in their environment as well?
