The following features are new:
StarTeam Synchronizer for Quality Center has been tested on Windows Server 2003 SP2 (32-bit version). It is recommended that you install the Synchronizer on the same computer on which the Synchronizer for Quality Center database resides, unless that is not a Windows platform. Because of the OTA APIs, the Synchronizer must run on a Windows operating system. It has no unusual operating system requirements.
The software listed above does not need to be located on the same machine as the Synchronizer, which can, if desired, run on a separate machine. However, the Synchronizer must have network access to the Synchronizer for Quality Center database and the StarTeam Server.
To install the Synchronizer, run the file ST_QC_Synchronizer.exe and follow the onscreen directions. ST_QC_Synchronizer.exe is a self-extracting executable that, by default, creates a folder named StarTeam Synchronizer in your Temp folder. It also adds files like setup.exe, which automatically installs the integration files and runs the self-extracting executable StarTeam-runtime.exe. StarTeam-runtime.exe installs the StarTeam SDK, which enables the integration to access the StarTeam Server.
If you are using the StarTeam Server for Windows and installing over a previous version of the Synchronizer, the installer renames the following files to preserve any changes you might have made to them:
The following are known issues in StarTeam Synchronizer for Quality Center.
%JAVA% -classpath "%_CLASSPATH% com.starbase.mtdsync.App BugSync.ini
such that it reads:
%JAVA% -Xmx256m -classpath "%_CLASSPATH% com.starbase.mtdsync.App BugSync.ini
The 2005 R2 Synchronizer allowed an empty Quality Center field mapped to a StarTeam enumeration to result in the StarTeam enumeration having an empty value. This was accomplished by setting the value of the StarTeam enumeration to 0 or -1.
his functionality has been removed because these values are not allowed by the StarTeam clien
. If the Quality Center value is empty and is mapped to a StarTeam enumeration, the default value of the enumeration in StarTeam will be used. Even if the mapping is owned by Quality Center, if the value in StarTeam is empty, the StarTeam
will be updated with the default value. In the 2005 R2 Synchronizer, if the vts_create_custom_fields directive was used to create an enumeration field in StarTeam, these newly created enumeration fields did not have the default value correctly set. If such a property is encountered during synchronization, a warning message is generated indicating that the user should use a 2006 or later client and set the default value in the customize dialog. If a Quality Center field is mapped to a StarTeam enumeration and that Quality Center field allows blanks, a warning is generated indicating that the user should customize the Quality Center field to make it "Required".
Quality Center does not convert times to local time when the Quality Center server is running in a different time zone than the Synchronizer, so times must be translated into the time zone of the server. Quality Center now performs the translation based upon a time zone ID code that specifies the time zone of the Quality Center server.
