CVS Like It Should Be
By templedf on May 05, 2006
I love the CVS support in NetBeans 5.0! It took a couple of weeks to adjust, but once I really started using it, I became hooked.
Here's my favorite new idiom. In our product team, we keep a change log, where every committer puts an entry for every check-in. Using NetBeans 5.0, to see what someone else changed before I do an update, I:
- CVS > Update on the change log
- CVS > Search History on the change log
- Find the commit in which I'm interested
- Click the Find Commit in: "<project>" link
And, voilà! I get a list of all the files that were changed in that check-in. Better yet, I can click the Diff button and see the changes that were made to those files during that check-in. Try doing that from the command line!
