public class AntStarTeamCheckOut
extends Task

Checks out files from a specific StarTeam server, project, view, and folder.

This program logs in to a StarTeam server and opens up the specified project and view. Then, it searches through that view for the given folder (or, if you prefer, it uses the root folder). Beginning with that folder and optionally continuing recursivesly, AntStarTeamCheckOut compares each file with your include and exclude filters and checks it out only if appropriate.

Checked out files go to a directory you specify under the subfolder named for the default StarTeam path to the view. That is, if you entered /home/cpovirk/work as the target folder, your project was named "OurProject," the given view was named "TestView," and that view is stored by default at "C:\projects\Test," your files would be checked out to /home/cpovirk/work/Test." I avoided using the project name in the path because you may want to keep several versions of the same project on your computer, and I didn't want to use the view name, as there may be many "Test" or "Version 1.0" views, for example. This system's success, of course, depends on what you set the default path to in StarTeam.

You can set AntStarTeamCheckOut to verbose or quiet mode. Also, it has a safeguard against overwriting the files on your computer: If the target directory you specify already exists, the program will throw a BuildException. To override the exception, set force to true.

This program makes use of functions from the StarTeam API. As a result AntStarTeamCheckOut is available only to licensed users of StarTeam and requires the StarTeam SDK to function. You must have starteam-sdk.jar in your classpath to run this program. For more information about the StarTeam API and how to license it, see the link below.

Field Detail

DEFAULT_INCLUDESETTING

public static final java.lang.String DEFAULT_INCLUDESETTING
This constant sets the filter to include all files. This default has the same result as setIncludes("*").

See Also:
getIncludes(), setIncludes(String includes), Constant Field Values

DEFAULT_EXCLUDESETTING

public static final java.lang.String DEFAULT_EXCLUDESETTING

getVerbose

public boolean getVerbose()
Gets the verbose attribute.

Returns:
whether to display all files as it checks them out.
See Also:
setVerbose(boolean verbose)

setIncludes

public void setIncludes(java.lang.String includes)
Sets the include filter. When filtering files, AntStarTeamCheckOut uses an unmodified version of DirectoryScanner's match method, so here are the patterns straight from the Ant source code:

Matches a string against a pattern. The pattern contains two special characters:
'*' which means zero or more characters,
'?' which means one and only one character.

Separate multiple inlcude filters by spaces , not commas as Ant uses. For example, if you want to check out all .java and .class\ files, you would put the following line in your program: setIncludes("*.java *.class"); Finally, note that filters have no effect on the directories that are scanned; you could not check out files from directories with names beginning only with "build," for instance. Of course, you could limit AntStarTeamCheckOut to a particular folder and its subfolders with the setFolderName(String folderName) command.

Treatment of overlapping inlcudes and excludes: To give a simplistic example suppose that you set your include filter to "*.htm *.html" and your exclude filter to "index.*". What happens to index.html? AntStarTeamCheckOut will not check out index.html, as it matches an exclude filter ("index.*"), even though it matches the include filter, as well.

Please also read the following sections before using filters:

Parameters:
includes - A string of filter patterns to include. Separate the patterns by spaces.
See Also:
getIncludes(), setExcludes(String excludes), getExcludes()

getIncludes

public java.lang.String getIncludes()
Gets the patterns from the include filter. Rather that duplicate the details of AntStarTeanCheckOut's filtering here, refer to these links:

Returns:
A string of filter patterns separated by spaces.
See Also:
setIncludes(String includes), setExcludes(String excludes), getExcludes()

setExcludes

public void setExcludes(java.lang.String excludes)
Sets the exclude filter. When filtering files, AntStarTeamCheckOut uses an unmodified version of DirectoryScanner's match method, so here are the patterns straight from the Ant source code:

Matches a string against a pattern. The pattern contains two special characters:
'*' which means zero or more characters,
'?' which means one and only one character.

Separate multiple exlcude filters by spaces , not commas as Ant uses. For example, if you want to check out all files except .XML and .HTML files, you would put the following line in your program: setExcludes("*.XML *.HTML"); Finally, note that filters have no effect on the directories that are scanned; you could not skip over all files in directories whose names begin with "project," for instance.

Treatment of overlapping inlcudes and excludes: To give a simplistic example suppose that you set your include filter to "*.htm *.html" and your exclude filter to "index.*". What happens to index.html? AntStarTeamCheckOut will not check out index.html, as it matches an exclude filter ("index.*"), even though it matches the include filter, as well.

Parameters:
excludes - A string of filter patterns to exclude. Separate the patterns by spaces.

setIncludes(String includes), getIncludes(), getExcludes()

getExcludes

getTargetFolderAbsolute

public boolean getTargetFolderAbsolute()

Returns:
returns true if absolute mapping is used, false if it is not used.
See Also:
setTargetFolderAbsolute(boolean)

setTargetFolderAbsolute

public void setTargetFolderAbsolute(boolean targetFolderAbsolute)
