Version Control for XMOS Development Environment

Postby Jerry » Fri Jul 09, 2010 8:22 pm

Before I go to the trouble of trying to do it myself, has anyone set up a version control system, like Subversion or Mercurial, and integrated it into the XMOS Eclipse IDE?

I not sure where exactly I have read something to the affect, I think an Xlinker was working at Version Control.
when I recall it I'll try to look it up and post it.

We have been successfully using Subclipsein the XMOS IDE.

To install it, you can't use the traditional Eclipse method of clicking through menus, but instead just copy the Subclipse files into the appropriate directories in the Eclipse install directory.

It occasionally seems a bit buggy, however, with commits raising an error from time to time. Although I'm not sure if the issue is with Subclipse, our SVN server, or us.

I've tried installing Eclipse plug-ins without success in the XMOS tools (I get an "Cannot complete the request. This installation has not been configured properly for software updates" error).

I'll try copying plug-in files under the Eclipse install directory.

I believe that's the error I got when trying the install method.

The copy-files method worked very well for me ( I was a bit surprised). I think it is the jar files that must be copied.
