JSP Page to Set State

JSP Page to Set State

I am working on an administrative JSP page that would allow me to Set-State on wtdocuments and/or epmdocuments. I am using the Search-Objects webject to search for and get the information about the documents but, I cannot find a webect that allows me to set-state. Would anyone know how this could be accomplished in a JSP page? Is this something I would need to create a java class to handle? I have limited exposure to java so I would like to stick with the JSP if possible. Here is the search page I have currently. I would like to have the button that is clicked submit the request to the server for the state change.

Not sure we can do this using webjects. But for the Java API you can do something like below and is fairly easy

try {

  System.out.println("Entered SetState Method");

  ObjectIdentifier oid = ObjectIdentifier.newObjectIdentifier("wt.epm.EPMDocument:30651355012");

  EPMDocument cadDoc = (EPMDocument) PersistenceHelper.manager.refresh(oid);

  System.out.println("Number: " +cadDoc.getNumber());

  LifeCycleHelper.service.setLifeCycleState ((LifeCycleManaged) cadDoc, State.toState ("WIP"));

  PersistenceHelper.manager.refresh ((Persistable) cadDoc, true, true);

  System.out.println("State of the document: " +cadDoc.getLifeCycleState());

     }

  catch(WTException e)

  {

  e.printStackTrace();

  }

Thank you

Thanks, I will give that a try.

Do you know if the ObjectIdentifier would be the same thing as the obid I show in the screenshot? Or would I need to parse that out of the obid?

You need to parse it to ObjectID

ReferenceFactory rf = new ReferenceFactory();

  WTReference ref = rf.getReference("VR:wt.epm.EPMDocument:30651331163");

  Persistable persistable = ref.getObject();

  System.out.println("Entered SetState Method");

  System.out.println("Object Id : " +ref.getObject());

  EPMDocument cadDoc = (EPMDocument)persistable;

  System.out.println("Number: " +cadDoc.getNumber());

  LifeCycleHelper.service.setLifeCycleState ((LifeCycleManaged) cadDoc, State.toState ("WIP"));

Thank you,

If you still want to use a JSP page for this, you can add the java code inside the jsp as I've done in the attached example for renaming EPM Docs.

Thanks for sharing that code it is really helpful! Time to play around with it...

Thanks, I think this is going to work for me, I did have one other question you have a State object that is not instantiated in that snippet of code how did you create that object. Sorry my Java coding is limited.

Thanks Binesh Kumar‌ I got it working now. It is a special use case but others may find it interesting so I am posting the code here. I created two JSP pages a start page and a results page. A new search can be started from the search page. I have not cleaned up the code and added all the error handling I need but this gives you a starting point. Disclaimer this is just some sample code and is not ready for production, use at your own risk.

Here is the start page starteng.jsp
