Subject Re: Regarding shallow checkouts

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

But usually if we are working on java project,to edit some files mean we
need to co the whole project and not that single file alone for editing as
we need to check whether the whole project is working fine by finally
compiling and running the same.So where exactly is the shallow co useful?

Regards,
An
