Subject RE: SVN Subversion- object level checkout
Date Thu, 13 Jan 2011 07:24:49 GMT
Hello Micheal,

Thanks for your mail.

We are using Tortoise SVN-1.6.7 alongwith Power Builder 11.5. 

We want to lock (check-out) the core power builder object from SVN so
that only one user can modify the object for that time. For this case,
If we want to open the workspace from the repository (SVN) we are
getting the attached message.

Please let us know the correct process for the Power Builder connectivty
with the proper Tortoise SVN SCC version to lock the core PB object. 

Appreciate your quick help.

you need to play by PowerBuilder's rules, I'm afraid. Trying to use
TortoiseSVN or any other "plain" Subversion client for checkin/checkout
will cause you grief.

You can still use TortoiseSVN for other tasks, like browsing logs,
tagging and branching.

The IDE supports the SCC API, and you need to use a plug-in for the IDE
that can drive Subversion via SCC. This will magically do the right
thing with objects in PBLs. Note that SCC encourages a serialized
workflow with reservation ("locking") of objects.

We evaluated PushOK's product a couple of years ago; at the time, it
proved a good fit for our customer's needs.

(Please upgrade to Subversion 1.6.15. Subversion 1.6.9 sports a number
of bugs that have been fixed since its release.)
