What CVS does in order to do an update is, it communicates to the server(repository), which version of the file it has.Then the server figures which file version to give it. The volume of communication is very large between the client and server. P4 maintians labels as references to the file versions instead of placing a marker on the physical file itself. P4 maintains differenct branches as distinct files - Unlike CVS where all branches of a file are marked on the same repository file The above two combined, give you a much superior performance when it comes to labelling and branching.
In P4, an entire commit(submit) is an atomic operation.
This is a real blessing, because you can be sure that a checkin will never break the code (Provided you have verified it doesn't before checking in!!! P4 is not as chatty as CVS - P4 maintains state on the server, which means you do not have those dirty /CVS directories in your code.
One of the concepts that people need to understand when they begin to work with Team Foundation Server Version Control is that of the Team Foundation Server (TFS) Workspace.
So I thought I would write a series of blog-posts covering the basics of TFS workspaces, with this post being the first.
To create and manage a blank repository, define the type parameter. Instructs Subversion to accept SSL server certificates issued by unknown certificate authorities. (Requires the feature.) Valid options: a string containing a username or UID. Git is the only VCS provider officially supported by Puppet Inc.
That remote serves as the upstream of your managed repository. The includes parameter is only supported when SVN client version is Testing on other platforms has been light and cannot be guaranteed. modules on the Puppet Forge are open projects, and community contributions are essential for keeping them great.Like Puppet in general, the vcsrepo module does not automatically create parent directories for the files it manages.Set up any needed directory structures before you start. Specifies the user to run as for repository operations.Many developers also use the software configuration management capabilities of Rational Team Concert that are integrated into Eclipse, or Eclipse-based products (such as IBM® Rational® Application Developer), and the Microsoft Visual Studio . This guide explains a supporting user interface for Rational Team Concert that is accessible from the command line.The command-line interface (CLI) provides access to a rich set of capabilities for the source code management (SCM) aspects of Rational Team Concert. by Rajesh Jayaraman - Friday, September 27, 2002 I have personally used both CVS and Perforce extensively.
