Netbeans 6.0 - working with vss (Microsoft Visual SourceSafe).
1. first, we have to download VSS plugin:
a. Go to Tools -> Plugins -> Setting -> Add
b. name = VSS, url = http://updates.netbeans.org/netbeans/updates/6.0/uc/final/vcsgenerics/catalog.xml.gz
c. this will install vss plugin (netbeans restart may be needed...) (will create Versing tab on Menu bar)
2. Create new project (as desired) inside netbeans. (I will demonstrate -getlatest- for new project)
3. Go to Versioning -> Versioning Manager -> Add.
a. Working directory: name of the new project created (on netbeans)
b. VSS user name: user with privileges for using VSS DB.
c. VSS command: usually: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VSS\win32\SS.EXE
(sometimes this file is incorrect, try to copy it from VSS folder)
d. VSS project: Name of the project. like: $/projectName
e. VSS Database: the url, like: file://googledb/d$/VSS_FOR_PROJECT/
f. mark -get latest version- checkbox for getting files from server.
g. click on FINISH.
Get latest version will start working and the files will move to the project.
Hope it usefull...
