HCL VersionVault CM API introduction

The HCL VersionVault WAN server API is a unified Java API through which you can access HCL VersionVault. The VersionVault CM server API extends the WVCM (Workspace Versioning and Configuration Management) API, which is a standard Java API for configuration management (see http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=147).

You can use the VersionVault CM API to build client applications that access HCL VersionVault and to build new integrations. The client application can be an Eclipse plugin or other Java client application. For example, you can use the API to build client applications that:
  • Perform VersionVault checkout and checkin operations from your Java application.
  • Browse the contents of a VersionVault web view or dynamic view on your local machine (snapshot views are not supported).
  • Create and modify VersionVault UCM objects, such as activities and streams.
