testing the latest buckminster from helios.

first time doing this, but i am trying to read an psf file that i have that is stored on a normal filesystem path in our version control system.

i.e the path is like z:\folder\folder\projectSet.psf

is there any example on how to do this?

or is this not possible as we use another version control system that is not supported as reader type, but as it exposes the files through as an normal system path i thought this might work anyways? The version control system can use the psf files to export/import though (clearcase).

i read this https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=291634

but seems only using cvs as readertype.

best regards

David

Page 48 in the book shows how to instruct Bucminster how to get the .psf
file - any supported reader can be used (cvs is only an example).

From p48:
The PSFProvider extension supports any reader type capable of producing a
single file (e.g. cvs, svn, p4, git, and url readers) to get the .psf file.

Also on p48:
It is possible to use a uri that references a catalog and specifying the
name of the .psf file using
the attribute psfFile like this:
<provider ...
psfFile="All.psf">
<uri format=":pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/rt,↵

¬/cvsroot/modeling,org.eclipse.emf/org.eclipse.emf.cdo/deve lop/setup/ " />
</provider>

That should cover the first part of the issue - making Buckminster find
and use the .psf file. (i.e. use a "url" reader to read it from a file).

Second part of the issue is making Buckminster understand what is inside
the .psf file. Buckminster maps the psf references to known readers, and
since there is no support for clearcase (hint: contributions are welcome
:)) the psf file must contain references that Buckminster can
understand - i.e. file references. This should be supported, but I have
not checked - if it does not work, an issue should be logged.
