Please note that the QueryBuilder SQL will return a maximum of 1000 records even if there are more to be returned. So logic should be included that if 1000 sorted records are returned, you should requery to retrieve missed records or until a recordset with less than 1000 returned records occurs.
This sample is a .NET 3.5 application.
Create a simple project and add references to
static void Main(string args)
string query = "Select SI_ID,SI_KIND,SI_NAME,SI_PARENT_FOLDER FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND IN ('Folder','FavoritesFolder')";
InfoObjects infoObjects = getCMCConnection().Query(query);
if (infoObjects.Count > 0)
foreach (InfoObject infoObject in infoObjects)
string siId = "" + infoObject.Properties["SI_ID"] + ":" + infoObject.Properties.Count;
Console.WriteLine("SI_ID=" + siId);
Console.WriteLine("No results found for " + query);
static InfoStore getCMCConnection()
SessionMgr sessionMgr = new SessionMgr();
EnterpriseSession enterpriseSession = sessionMgr.Logon("UserName", "Password", "ServerName", "secEnterprise");
EnterpriseService enterpriseService = enterpriseSession.GetService("InfoStore");
InfoStore infoStore = new InfoStore(enterpriseService);

I just finished "Software Estimation" by Steve McConnell. This is a good book for covering exactly what the title indicates.
Steve McConnell is a well known author of software development books including "Code Complete".
This book starts with the difficulties experienced in software estimation and how hard it is indeed.
He then proceeds to cover approaches to develop more accurate estimates.
Techniques which include:
- calibration with historical data
- expert judgment
- decomposition and recomposition
- estimatino by analogy
- proxy-based estimates
Coverage of expert judgment in groups, software estimation tools, handling multiple approaches, and standardizing estimating procedures. The latter half of the book covers special issues in estimating.
All in all a good book to provide a thorough covering of software estimation.
