Source control enablement

Source control enablement feature has been introduced to let you store NSF based design elements into a source control repository and perform common source control operations using Domino® Designer.

Eclipse based (i.e. open source) source control clients such as SVN and CCRC work on physical files. As such they can not directly work with Designer projects that contain virtual files mapping to NSF based design elements. They only work with projects that are saved on disk. As such, you need to work on a project on disk that mirrors the virtual NSF project to perform source control operations.

To help resolve this, the Domino Designer source control enablement feature has been introduced to let you store NSF based design elements into a source control repository and perform common source control operations using Domino Designer. The feature does this by letting you create an association between an on-disk project managed by the source control and the virtual NSF based project that Designer tracks. This step is, in fact, a prerequisite that needs to be completed before carrying out any basic source controls operations.

Finally, this feature lets you integrate an SVN source control client with Domino Designer as seamlessly as possible and to let Domino Designer to stay as source control system agnostic as much as possible.
