Can you read files directly from an RTC SCM stream or write them directly into it, avoiding having to use a repository workspace? Kevin, a colleague, was recently facing this challenge writing automation for a customer. We discussed this challenge when we met on a trip.
I was pretty sure it should be possible, but I had no clue how. I have worked with parts of the RTC SCM API and published the results in this blog. However, I have always used a repository workspace and the usual workflow and I had no answer. So how can you do this, provided the API always wants a workspace connection?
Kevin got this puzzle solved with the help of one of our developers and has published the resulting code and reasoning in this blog post. If you are interested, check his code out and give him a thumbs up!
