Reserved Edit with the eclipse CVS plugin [message #447660] Thu, 16 December 2004 09:18 Go to next message

Hi,

In my team we use a CVS scm environment.
Developers issue a Reserve-Edit on files they wish to change thru their
winCVS client. I prefer to use the CVS plugin within eclipse.

HOW to issue a reserve-edit thru cvs eclipse plugin ?

Any way I can tweak the existing plugin instead of waiting for the next
release?

PS:
1. Using Eclipse 3.1M3
2. Observation: Eclipse does not seem to issue a 'CVS Edit' which is the
same as WinCVS. (at least the cvs log shows so).
3. Have enabled watch/edit on 'cvs enabled' projects.
4. In my project developers issue a Reserved-Edit on files they wish to
make changes in before changing them (so as to prevent others checking in
-- avoiding the hassle of merging later)

You need to configure your project(s) to use watch/edit. I would suggest
opening up the Eclipse help, typing in "watch/edit" in the search field
and clicking GO. This should find several pages on using watch/edit with
Eclipse. The one you want is titled "Finding out who's working on what:
watch/edit".

Mike,

I think u did not get my question right.
My projects are configured to use Watch/Edit with CVS and ...

Thru the Team->Edit menu on a particular file Eclipse fires a
"cvs noop <filename>" command. While WinCVS fires a "cvs edit <fileName>"
cmd.

My requirement is a Reserved-Edit, which in WinCVS terms is the command:
"cvs -c edit <fileName>"

Can I achieve this by tweaking some property files or something.
Or is hardcoded in some java source code?

thks
