The sample VB.net code below uses a new techique to obtain a single requirement object using the SDK. This technique can be employed to prevent Java Heap memory issues when retrieving requirements from large CaliberRM databases. The code uses the new method "AllProjectIDs", details of this can be found in the following solution

How can a single project be retrieved using the VB.Net SDK?

The new SDK has a new method called "getRequirements", this method returns a CaliberRM collection of CaliberRM requirement object which then can be used to obtain a single requirement. The method syntax is as follows

Public Function getRequirements(projectID as CaliberRM.ProjectID, baseLineID as CaliberRM.BaselineID, requirementIDs as CaliberRM.Collection)

Sample VB.net Code

Dim collectionfactory As CaliberRM.CollectionFactory
Dim myreqcollection As CaliberRM.Collection
Dim req As CaliberRM.Requirement
Dim serialnumber as Integer

"obtain project
my_project = my_session.getProject(allprojids(0))

"Obtain current baseline ID
BID = my_project.CurrentBaseline.BaselineID

"Create a collection for the requirement serial number
collectionfactory = New CaliberRM.CollectionFactory
mycollection = collectionfactory.Create()

"add serial number to collection

"Create collection to hold requirements
Dim myreqcollection As CaliberRM.Collection
myreqcollection = collectionfactory.Create()

"technique to obtain requirement object
For r = 0 To mycollection.Count - 1
myreqcollection = my_session.getRequirements(allprojids(0), BID, mycollection)

req = myreqcollection.Item(0)
