JBuilder Integration for the Telelogic/Continuus CM


This piece of software is a JBuilder Opentool, which enables JBuilder 3.5 to 8.0 to integrate with Continuus Change Management 5.x and Telelogic CM Synergy 6.x. The program is partially based on the cvs sample from Borland which comes with JBuilder 3.5, which uses the cvs command line interface (CLI) to issue commands to the version control system. Initially changes to the cvs sample were made to

JBCCM runs in JB from version 3.5 to X, but it doesn't use the Version Control OT API of JB 4 to X. It has been tested on Windows NT 4 and XP as well as on SuSE Linux 6.3 and 7.2 together with CCM 5.0 and CCM 5.1 as well as CMS 6.1.

Installation is quite simple. Put jbccm.jar to the lib/ext subdirectory and jcccmhlp.jar to the doc subdirectory of your JBuilder installation. JBuilder will then need to be restarted.

With JB 3.5 and JB X you will in addition need gnuregexp.jar, which for all other JB versions is already delivered by Borland. Download is available from http://www.cacas.org/java/gnu/regexpr or ftp://ftp.tralfamadore.com/pub/java/gnu.regexp-1.0.8.tar.gz. Put the included java library gnu-regexp-1.0.8.jar to the lib/ext subdirectory as well - renamed to gnuregexp.jar, if you like.


The tool originally wasn't much more than a first attempt, but it worked fine with object based CCM repositories. Task based working with CCM is supported since version 2.0.

The tool is some result of two client's projects and my demand for a project to keep in touch with programming Java. I dont have much time to go on developing it, and because I don't need it myself, I tried to find someone else who wants to go on with it. I've been in contact with Telelogic Germany and gave them the tool for evaluation purposes. They've alraedy distributed it to some of their customers based on some kind of "gentlemen agreement".

Since September 2001 Telelogic Germany and I have agreed to cooperate on JBCcm; see Credits for details.

Please send your feedback if you experience any problems, if you have any ideas how to improve the tool or if you'd like to improve the tool yourself.
