Hi all,
I have created my remote system mapping for an Object Db (I have based the
code on the ftp service and subsystem example)
I can displays all my files correctly in the remote system view ... now I
have got a problem


- EDIT with outside editor

a) first step download the content (no problem)
b) during the save I have no control on the file ...
c) I close the editor ... what can I do to check the file and sync with the
db?


Thanks
Kar

Hello Kar,

is this just rephrasing your previous question, or is this a slightly
different issue? I'm afraid that I don't understand your problem, could
you explain again?

Is it that you need some kind of callback when the upload/save operation
is finished, such that you could perform the required "checkin" operation?


Cheers,

Hi Martin ...
sorry if I have not been clear ...
they are two different questions ...

the point is that I need to:
- check out the file when I open the editor (ok I can do it on the download
bit)
- save the content each time the save button is pressed (and this can be
done on the upload)
- check in the file when the editor is closed .... and here I'm not sure if
I can rely on the editor close (I have to be sure that this event will be
fired after the upload ... so I can upload / save the document and
afterwards check in the document to unlock it)

this is what I can see during the procedure of using an internal editor ...

-----

the second problem is ...
when I open a file using an external editor to eclipse (let's say word or
any other editor) is there any way to know when the editor will be closed
and above all what is the right operation to start to sync the temp file
with the one in the db ...

Many thanks
Kar

Hello Kar,

this may not be the answer that you're looking for, but why
don't you make the "checkin" operation explicit?

With external editors at least, I cannot see how you could
auto-detect that the user is finished with his work, so I
cannot see any other way that providing an explicit "checkin"
operation.

Your whole usability story could actually be similar to CVS,
SVN and the like: check out, edit, synchronize, check in...
perhaps you'll not want RSE after all but a Team Provider
integration?

Cheers,
