Version Control System [message #242642] Mon, 04 June 2007 09:04 Go to next message

I am looking for a Oracle Form Version Control System.

I started converting Oracle Forms from 6i to 10g few months back and got the latest copy during that time.

And now I am almost done with migration but there has been some changes in few of the forms since then. So, I need to set up a version control system for this process. In particular, I need to know which objects have been converted, and I need to keep track of those source objects that change in the course of doing PR work. I have some ideas, but I haven’t hit upon a combination that strikes me as being workable.

A quick response to this highly appreciated.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hello Harleen

You could use the Oracle Designer Repository for Versioncontrol. That is the only option if you need to compare two Forms other than exporting them to Text and compare those files.

If you just need a general Versioncontrol, I'd recommend Subversion, which is the successor to CVS. You can download it at http://svn.tigris.org. Since it is OpenSource, you can use it for free - and it is IMHO the best available Version Control Software.

But of course - no specific Forms support since Forms saves as binaries.

I hope that helped...
