How does RTC eclipse client calculates the number of loaded content in the sandbox, when users loaded using load-rules?
Scenario: The term "loaded" refers to "share roots" and when using load rule file, the possible "share roots" are folders and files.
The Package Explorer will show the 'share roots' which are loaded and not the number of components, normally folders are loaded and become a share root (meaning anything inside them is automatically tracked, and changes there will appear as an unresolved pending local change). It is also possible to have files individually loaded (in which they are technically a 'share root' all in themselves); this usually doesn't happen when using the Load Wizard (where users normally load projects/folders), but this can happen when using load rules, since users are free to pick and choose what they want to load.
-The 'itemLoadRule' element in a load rule file will identify a single file, folder or symbolic link that is to be loaded as a 'share root'. The Package Explorer would count this as 1 for the number of 'things' loaded.
Below is the example : Assume that the folder "H1" and the file ".jazzignore" under comp2 are the ones that are considered as "share-root"s ? Which add up to the count of 2 loaded against comp2 ?
1. Loaded refers to anything that is loaded as a share-root. This anything here is one of File, Folder or Symbolic Link.
2. Any File/Folder/Symbolic Link pointed to by an itemLoadRule will be loaded as a share-root
3. Children of anything pointed to by a parentLoadRule would also be loaded as share-roots
4. Loaded count gets aggregated over the hierarchy
5. To see what is being loaded as a share root, remove the filter on *.resources in the Package Explorer and each of the share roots would be decorated.
