Starteam, enable multiple-view free-text search of old bug reports
I was asked by my boss to come up with a plan on how enable multiple-view free-text search of old bug reports, Change Requests, in Borlandís Starteam system. And for the query's matching CRís, view description and access file attachments.
Do I need to write an Application querying multiple Starteam views (using Borlandís Starteamís API) to access its repository?
I was thinking of using Microsofts Index Server since I'm familiar with it. Could this be solved as easy as just pointing Microsoft Index Server to Starteam on-disk files?
If anybody has some source code to share on how to query multiple views in Starteam and itís description-, synopsis- and attachment-fields, in any language, it would be much appreciated.
I guess one could also export all data out of Starteam into SQL Server and query it using Index Server but Iím not so keen to duplicate all data in Starteam. This approach also need to sync up with it as the Starteam views are updated with new records.
If anybody has setup above system, sharing that knowledge with world would be much appreciated. You will receive same appreciation if you share source code that access Starteam for similar purpose e.g. querying multiple views in Starteam.
