I've seen a couple of posts by people asking whether its possible to call the methods from the OTA foundation classes supplied by HP as part of the QC distribution package from a J2EE program.
Well I've been busy developing a system which integrates open source test tools to QC as well as providing an off-line capability for the key functional areas of QC (releases, reqs, tests, test runs, defects, etc) and its written in Java.
Part of the work I have been doing is to create a developers toolkit which exposes the OTA functions via Java classes as well as creating some core java classes/methods which perform key tasks such as retrieving all defects or defects by summary, id, adding, updating and removing defects along with attachments and so on. These core classes are extended across all areas of QC which when called return the results as XML which can then be parsed through the XML parsing functions and DTDs provided with
the toolkit into Java based objects for use within your own java programs.
I was wondering if anybody out there would be interested in knowing more about this and if so please do get back in touch as I'd be glad to send you some more info.
