public class Pvcs
extends Task

Extracts the latest edition of the source code from a PVCS repository. PVCS is a version control system developed by Merant.
Before using this tag, the user running ant must have access to the commands of PVCS (get and pcli) and must have access to the repository. Note that the way to specify the repository is platform dependent so use property to specify location of repository.
This version has been tested agains PVCS version 6.5 and 6.6 under Windows and Solaris. 19-04-2001

The task now has a more robust parser. It allows for platform independant file paths and supports file names with (). Thanks to Erik Husby for bringing the bug to my attention. 27-04-2001

UNC paths are now handled properly. Fix provided by Don Jeffery. He also added an UpdateOnly flag that, when true, conditions the PVCS get using the -U option to only update those files that have a modification time (in PVCS) that is newer than the existing workfile. 25-10-2002

Added a revision attribute that currently is a synonym for label, but in a future release the behavior of the label attribute will change to use the -v option of GET. See bug #13847 for discussion.

Constructor Detail

Pvcs

public Pvcs()
Creates a Pvcs object

Method Detail

runCmd

protected int runCmd(Commandline cmd,
                     ExecuteStreamHandler out)

execute

public void execute()
             throws BuildException
Description copied from class: Task
Called by the project to let the task do its work. This method may be called more than once, if the task is invoked more than once. For example, if target1 and target2 both depend on target3, then running "ant target1 target2" will run all tasks in target3 twice.

Overrides:
execute in class Task
Throws:
BuildException - Something is stopping the build...

getRepository

public java.lang.String getRepository()
Get network name of the PVCS repository

Returns:
String

getFilenameFormat

public java.lang.String getFilenameFormat()
The filenameFormat attribute defines a MessageFormat string used to parse the output of the pcli command. It defaults to {0}-arc({1}). Repositories where the archive extension is not -arc should set this.


setFilenameFormat

public void setFilenameFormat(java.lang.String f)
The format of the folder names; optional. This must be in a format suitable for java.text.MessageFormat. Index 1 of the format will be used as the file name. Defaults to {0}-arc({1})


getLineStart

public java.lang.String getLineStart()
The lineStart attribute is used to parse the output of the pcli command. It defaults to "P:. The parser already knows about / and \\, this property is useful in cases where the repository is accessed on a Windows platform via a drive letter mapping.


setLineStart

public void setLineStart(java.lang.String l)
What a valid return value from PVCS looks like when it describes a file. Defaults to "P:. If you are not using an UNC name for your repository and the drive letter P is incorrect for your setup, you may need to change this value, UNC names will always be accepted.


setRepository

public void setRepository(java.lang.String repo)
The network name of the PVCS repository; required.

Parameters:
repo - String

getPvcsproject

public java.lang.String getPvcsproject()
Get name of the project in the PVCS repository

Returns:
String

setPvcsproject

public void setPvcsproject(java.lang.String prj)
The project within the PVCS repository to extract files from; optional, default "/"

Parameters:
prj - String

getPvcsprojects

public java.util.Vector getPvcsprojects()
Get name of the project in the PVCS repository

Returns:
Vector

getWorkspace

public java.lang.String getWorkspace()
Get name of the workspace to store the retrieved files

Returns:
String

setWorkspace

public void setWorkspace(java.lang.String ws)
Workspace to use; optional. By specifying a workspace, the files are extracted to that location. A PVCS workspace is a name for a location of the workfiles and isn't as such the location itself. You define the location for a workspace using the PVCS GUI clients. If this isn't specified the default workspace for the current user is used.

Parameters:
ws - String

getPvcsbin

public java.lang.String getPvcsbin()
Get name of the PVCS bin directory

Returns:
String

setPvcsbin

public void setPvcsbin(java.lang.String bin)
Specifies the location of the PVCS bin directory; optional if on the PATH. On some systems the PVCS executables pcli and get are not found in the PATH. In such cases this attribute should be set to the bin directory of the PVCS installation containing the executables mentioned before. If this attribute isn't specified the tag expects the executables to be found using the PATH environment variable.

Parameters:
bin - PVCS bin directory
To do:
use a File setter and resolve paths.

getForce

public java.lang.String getForce()
Get value of force

Returns:
String

setForce

public void setForce(java.lang.String f)
Specifies the value of the force argument; optional. If set to yes all files that exists and are writable are overwritten. Default no causes the files that are writable to be ignored. This stops the PVCS command get to stop asking questions!

Parameters:
f - String (yes/no)
To do:
make a boolean setter

getPromotiongroup

public java.lang.String getPromotiongroup()
Get value of promotiongroup

Returns:
String

setPromotiongroup

public void setPromotiongroup(java.lang.String w)
Specifies the name of the promotiongroup argument

Parameters:
w - String

getLabel

public java.lang.String getLabel()
Get value of label

Only files marked with this label are extracted; optional.

Parameters:
l - String
