JDeveloper now supports all version control tools
By Shay Shmeltzer on May 31, 2005
Well not exactly, but the new how-to I wrote shows you how to integrate tools such as version control tools into JDeveloper without coding.
Check it out here.
Using the External Tools menu option in JDeveloper provided me with quite an easy way to integrate the Subversion tool through its command line interface.
Although it doesn't offer the full functionality that you get with the built-in integration we offer for CVS and Clearcase, I managed to get the basics working quite well as you can see in this online demo.
It was also a nice opportunity to look into Subversion which is very similar to CVS but offers a few additional features that might be quite useful like the status command.
When I get some free time, I should probably just convert this integration into an extension using the Extension SDK. I'll put this on my to-do list.
