Reterieve Records that has been checked out from Data Manager


I am working with MDM Java API to Retrieve records that has been checked out by MDM DataManager.

This Snippet is a part of it i have work with . i am using Package.

We use getCheckoutStatus() to get theCheckout status of a record, but when i apply this method it is showing as (-1) (1, if the record is checked out (-1) for unchecked record )even thought the record is checkedout in DataManager.

Can any one please help in this query. the soln i want is something like from all the records that are in DataManager i need to get the checked out Status of each record.

RecordResultSet records = retrieveRecordsCmd.getRecords();

//for(int xi=0; xi<records.getCount(); xi++)

// {

Record rec=records.getRecord(1);


System.out.println("5th record is:"+rec);

System.out.println("check out status of the record :"+rec.getCheckoutStatus());

int recst= Record.CheckoutStatus.CHECKED_OUT;

System.out.println("Current Record Checkout Status is:"+recst);



System.out.println("Manually checking the Checkedout status after the Record is Checked Out :");


// }

With Thanks

    Hi Mary,

    please try this:

    NumberOfCheckoutRec = 0;

    RecordResultSet records = retrieveRecordsCmd.getRecords();

    for(int n=1; n<records.getCount(); n++)


    Record rec=records.getRecord(n);

    System.out.println("Read record:" + rec);

    System.out.println(" Check out status of the record: " + rec.getCheckoutStatus());

    if(rec.getCheckoutStatus() == 1)


    numberOfCheckoutRec = numberOfCheckoutRec + 1;

    //If you want to check in the checkout rec do this:



    System.out.println(" Numer of checkuot rec is: " + numberOfCheckoutRec );


    Please adjust some bit imprecisions in code.

    Hope this help you.
