1 Introduction to Oracle Team Productivity Center

This chapter describes the basic operations of Oracle Team Productivity Center, including logging in, connecting and disconnecting, selecting your team, and using and interpreting the build summary.

This chapter includes the following sections:

1.1 About Oracle Team Productivity Center

Oracle Team Productivity Center is a Oracle JDeveloper feature that provides access to a set of application lifecycle management (ALM) tools and technologies.

ALM tools address the need to integrate the growing number of data tracking and data repository tools that are used by product development organizations throughout the product's lifecycle. Initial product development, for example, typically tracks product definition, specifications, and collaborative code development, as well as defects discovered during initial testing. As the product is released, customer requests and enhancements may be tracked in a third repository. When developers are later required to maintain a customer-released product in one development branch while also doing new feature development for upcoming releases in a different branch, the request and defect-tracking repositories need to be linked with the appropriate development branch, whether maintenance or new release, of the team's version-control system. Oracle Team Productivity Center lets teams integrate all these repositories, and any others they may use, directly in the integrated development environment.

In addition to bringing external data repositories into the IDE, Oracle Team Productivity Center supports a highly flexible hierarchy of teams and subteams that can be configured and maintained by local team administrators. Oracle Team Productivity Center is designed to:

  • Increase value in existing investments by providing unified access to current artifact repositories (including bug databases, version repositories, and other content libraries) and allowing integration between them.

  • Allow for quick and flexible assembly of teams and subteams.

  • Collaborate with other team members through chat.

  • Reduce the barriers between different teams during the development process, and eliminating many hard-wired boundaries through collaboration, shared labeling, and smooth information flow.

  • Maximize current investments in skills, processes and technologies.

  • Increase flexibility by reducing the time it takes to integrate new applications into the development team environment.

Oracle Team Productivity Center also presents information about the latest builds undergoing development. A build dashboard and build summary present at-a-glance information about the status of development builds, with links to let you quickly find the details of issues that interest you in the latest build.

1.1.1 How to Migrate from a Previous Version

When you install the latest version of Oracle JDeveloper containing Oracle Team Productivity Center, you have the option of migrating files from a previous version. If you have already been using Team Productivity Center and are upgrading to a new version, be sure to follow the installation instructions for migrating to the latest version. In particular, be sure to install and migrate to the newest versions of any connectors you use. This will ensure that you have the latest capabilities, and that your connectors are fully compatible with the latest Team Productivity Center client.

1.2 Connecting to Oracle Team Productivity Center

Oracle Team Productivity Center is made up of the following parts:

  • The Oracle Team Productivity Center features of Oracle JDeveloper.

  • The Oracle Team Productivity Center server software, which is available from Oracle Technology Network. The server software includes a standalone installation guide, also available from Oracle Technology Network, which includes help on installing the Oracle Team Productivity Center server and connectors

  • Oracle Team Productivity Center connectors, which are available by selecting Help > Check for Updates. Connectors permit the Oracle Team Productivity Center client software, running inside JDeveloper, to interact with data repositories such as bug-tracking systems and feature databases.

  • The Team Resource window, from which you can create connections to shared resources such as an application server, a database, or a file system, which will then be available to all team members.

To connect to the Oracle Team Productivity Center server:

  • In the Teams accordion, click on Connect to Team Server, or select Team > Connect to Team Server.

This opens the Connect to Team Server dialog, described in the following section.

For more information on installing connectors from Check for Updates, see the “How to Install Extensions with Check for Updates" section in Developing Applications with Oracle JDeveloper.

You can only connect to one chat server at a time. If your team uses multiple chat server, you must disconnect from one and update your chat properties to connect to another. To do this, click the Edit Connection Property button, or click the Connect toolbar button. Any of these will open the Connection Property dialog, from which you can click the Connect button.

1.4 Understanding the Build Dashboard and Build Summary

The Build Dashboard and Build Summary summarize the build status of projects your organization is tracking with a build tracking plugin such as Hudson or Cruise Control.

The Build Summary is displayed when you first log in to Team Productivity Center. JDeveloper shows a temporary snapshot of the Build Summary, containing information about the development/build branches your team is following, with status listings from the most recent builds and links to other results.

The Build Dashboard presents detailed statistics from builds of projects your organization is tracking with Team Productivity Center. The upper portion of the summary gives an overview of build information, test results, and the total transactions represented in the build. The lower portion shows related transactions from the source control management system in use, if Oracle Team Productivity Center was used to commit to the source control management system. You can open the build summary for a specific build listed in the Build Dashboard to view additional details on that specific build.

1.4.1 How to Open and Use the Build Dashboard

If the Build Dashboard is not visible, you can access it from the Team menu. This gives you easy visual access to the builds, branches, and test results that your team is following at this point in the project lifecycle.

To open the Build Dashboard:

  • Team > Build Dashboard

You can also open the Build Dashboard by clicking the drop-down selector from the Teams window, then selecting Build Dashboard.

If you have not yet logged in to Oracle Team Productivity Center and you select the Build Dashboard, you will be asked to log in to Oracle Team Productivity Center first. For more information, see Section 1.2.1, "How to Connect to the Team Productivity Center Server."

1.4.1.1 Using the Build Dashboard

The Build Dashboard shows statistics from build status results that your team is tracking. You use the Build Dashboard to view transactions from your source control management system, test results, and work items affected by the build.

To use the Build Dashboard:

Clicking the branch name or the Total Transactions links of a row in the Build Dashboard displays the build results. This shows statistics from builds of projects your organization is tracking with Team Productivity Center.

Once you display the Build Dashboard, you can select from the latest builds and then view the information shown in Table 1-5.

Key

Displays the work item ID associated with the change set being displayed. Clicking on the key opens the work item detail editor, allowing you to view and modify the work item.


1.4.2 How to Use the Build Dashboard and Build Summary

All build/test system configuration takes place when the plugin is installed in the build/test environment. The build plugin is typically installed when Oracle Team Productivity Center Server is installed initially. After installation and configuration, build/test system results are returned to the Team Productivity Center client and made available to the Build Dashboard. You can customize the dashboard to display the results that are of interest to you.

To customize the build dashboard display:

  • Click on the Customize Branch and Favorite Notifications icon (the wrench).

This opens the Manage Module and Display Notification dialog. From this dialog you can select the modules you wish to include in the dashboard, as well as whether you choose to subscribe to notification in JDeveloper when any new build results are available for one of these modules. For more information while using the Manage Module and Display Notification dialog, press F1 or click Help at any time.

1.4.2.1 Selecting Builds from the Build Dashboard

The Build Summary presents statistics from one specific build your organization is tracking with Team Productivity Center. The upper portion of the summary gives an overview of build information and test results represented in the build.

To select a build from the Build Dashboard:

  • Click on the Branch drop-down from the Build Dashboard, then double-click on the build of interest to select it. This displays the Build Summary for the selected build.

Table 1-6 describes the Build Summary toggle buttons, by which you can control which tests are displayed.

Failures

The number of tests in each class that resulted in a failure.

% Passed

The percentage of successful tests. Note that the percentages in each row reflect the ratio of passes to failures for each member of the class; if you collapse a row (which suppresses the display of elements in, and beneath, that class member), the percentage passed may not appear to reflect the visible numbers until you expand the row.

Status

A graphical display representing the status of each test, as a success, a caution, or a failure.

Results

The Results column displays a link to a detailed screen of information which summarizes the results of a test, including the specific error messages or output produced by that test. For failed test cases, this column normally displays more data, such as a full stack trace. Click the link to display a read-only dialog with full data.

Owner

The assigned team member responsible for the test on the selected row. You can send the owner email or open a chat session with the owner by right-clicking the owner's name.

If no owner is assigned to a test, the owner field contains a button you can use to assign yourself as the owner. Tests without an assigned owner will be the only items displayed if you select the Unassigned Only checkbox.

Additionally, this cell contains a toggle button: Add me as a owner and Remove me as a owner. To take ownership of a failed test, click Add me as a owner. To relinquish ownership, click Remove me as a owner.

Work Items

The numbers of any Oracle Team Productivity Center work items assigned to the test. Click on the work item number to display the details of that work item.

To show all repositories the team can access, click Create Work Item. This displays a list of all the work item repositories available to that team. You can then create the appropriate work item for that test.

Once the new work item is saved, the build summary page is updated with the new work item number.


1.5 Understanding Code Reviews

Oracle Team Productivity Center contains a number of features that allow a team to review code collaboratively, as part of the development process. The Code Reviews window is the primary way you access code reviews. While there are other ways you can search for, edit, and interact with code reviews, an overview of the Code Reviews window will give you an understanding of how to interact with code reviews.

1.5.1 How to Access the Code Reviews Window

You must be logged in to your Oracle Team Productivity Center server to access the Code Reviews window.

To access the Code Reviews window:

  • Select Team > Code Reviews.

This opens the Code Reviews window, located by default next to the Teams window.

1.5.2 How to Navigate the Code Reviews Window

The Code Reviews window lets you browse through reviews you have already seen, created, or been assigned. It also includes four tabs that let you display comments made to a review, the details for that review, reviewers assigned to it, and attachments for the selected review.

At the top of the Code Reviews window, you will see a drop-down list box from which you can select from three folders:

  • Reviews You Created

  • Reviews Assigned to You

  • Recently Viewed Reviews

Select one of these folders to display its contents; you will be able to select a specific review from the contents of each folder. If the folders are empty, you can search for reviews. Searching for reviews is covered in detail in Chapter 2, Section 2.3, "Working with Code Reviews"

To the right of the drop-down list box, there is an additional drop-down menu selector which displays the following options:

  • New Review: Creates a new review.

  • Refresh Review List: updates the content of the Code Reviews window if there have been changes (for example, if new reviews have been assigned to you).

  • Mark Review Closed: Close the selected review. Closed reviews are no longer available for comments.

  • Rename Review: Opens the Rename Review Name dialog. Enter the new review name, then click OK.

  • Search For Reviews: opens the Search Code Reviews window. Searching for reviews is covered in detail in Chapter 2, Section 2.3, "Working with Code Reviews"

Below the drop-down lists, you will see four tabs that present more detailed information for a selected review:

  • Comments

  • Details

  • Reviewers

  • Attachments

These tabs give you access to different aspects of the Code Review.

1.5.2.1 Using the Comments Tab

The Comments tab displays two kinds of comments:

  • General comments: these are comments meant to be applied to the overall review, rather than comments about a specific line of code or change made to a file under review.

  • Files with comments: below the general comments, JDeveloper displays a list of files associated with this review, which have comments.

The list of files for a specific review lets you explore and interact with the files that your team have commented on in the process of the review.

To add a general comment:

  • Select the Comments tab, then click the Add New General Comment icon. Enter the text of your comment, then press the Enter key when completed to save your comment.

To select a file from the Comments tab:

  • Double-click the file name in the Comments tab.

This opens the selected file in the JDeveloper editing window, using the revision compare tool. This lets you scroll through two versions of the file being reviewed; you can use the navigation icons to jump to the next change, previous change, first change or last change.

You can reply to comments and also create new comments. See the section Section 2.3.5, "How To Comment on a Code Review" for details.

1.5.2.2 Filtering Review Comments

There are two ways you can filter which files and which review comments are displayed:

  • By using the filter field to restrict display to comments matching the filter text.

  • By selecting an option from the Show menu (funnel icon) to apply to all available review comments.

The filter field interactively displays only the comments that match the text you enter. For example, if you have comments on Line 4, Line 6, and Lines 8-12, typing the text “Lines” in the filter field causes only the comment on Lines 8-12 to be displayed.

Note that the filter field only applies to the titles of comments; it has no effect on the display of files associated with the review.

To determine which files are to be displayed, you can use the Show menu to select specific conditions under which files, and any comments they contain:

  • Show All Files: Display all files associated with this review.

  • Only Show Files With Comments: Suppress the display of any files that do not contain review comments.

  • Show All Comment Threads: Display all comment threads, including the initial comment and any subsequent responses.

  • Show Only Unresolved Comment Threads: Suppress the display of any comment threads that have been resolved.

Careful use of the filter field and the Show menu can help you focus on specific issues of concern to you, rather than having to search individually through all comments in a specific review. This can be particularly valuable in a complex, lengthy project with dozens or even hundreds of review comments.

1.5.2.3 Using the Details Tab

Table 1-8 illustrates the contents of the Details Tab

Table 1-8 Contents of the Details Tab

Option Description

Name

The name of the code review you have selected.

Created By

The name of the team member who created the code review.

Revision Details

Changeset Details

Displays the files included in the changeset to which this code review applies.

Associated Work Items

If this code review pertains to specific work items, they are included here. You can view the work item by double-clicking its name in this field.


1.5.2.4 Using the Reviewers Tab

The Reviewers tab lists all team members who have been added as reviewers.

If you are the owner of a review, you can add or delete team members to the reviewers list by clicking the appropriate icon at the top of the tab.

To add or remove a reviewer from your review:

  • Click on the Add Reviewers (+) or Delete Reviewers (X) icon.

In addition, team member names in the Reviewers tab are active links to the chat feature. You can send a message to any of the reviewers in the tab by clicking their name.

1.5.2.5 Using the Attachments Tab

The Attachments tab lists any files added to the review. You can add or delete files to the review.

To add or remove a file from the review:

  • Click on the Add Files (+) or Delete Files (X) icon.

1.5.2.6 Managing Your Review Preferences

You can control the way you receive notifications, and the number of reviews displayed in the Recently Viewed Reviews folder, by using the Reviews tab of the Manage Profile dialog.

To control how you receive notifications:

  • From the Teams drop-down menu, select Manage Profile, then select the Code Reviews tab.

The Code Reviews tab lets you select whether you prefer to be notified by email or by popup under various conditions. ou can also select how many code reviews to be displayed in your Recently Viewed Reviews folder (5, 10, or 15), and you can clear the list of recently viewed reviews.
