    I don't have experience with VSS and eclipse but google("vss

    eclipse")[1] can give you a starting point.

    We used VSS with CFEclipse for a while before moving on to another source control system.  Here are the notes from our old install docs, they may be outdated, but this is how we connected to our VSS repository a couple of years ago (I have no idea what version):

     

    The Visual Source Safe plug-in can be found here (http://sourceforge.net/projects/vssplugin/files/vssplugin/Version%201. 6.2/org.vssplugin_1.6.2.zip/download).  To install this plug-in, simply extract the content of this zip file into your Eclipse installation’s plugins directory (i.e., "C:\Eclipse\plugins") ; you should now have a new folder named "org.vssplugin_1.6.2" in your plugins directory; restart Eclipse. (Note: You must also install the Visual Source Safe desktop client on your local machine for Eclipse to be able to interact with VSS)

     

    Use the following steps to connect to a VSS repository.

    • Open Eclipse to your main Workspace and select "File > New > Project" from the top menu.
    • Select "CFEclipse > CFML Project" in the popup window.
    • For the project name, put whatever you want, uncheck "use default location", and specify where you want to check out your code. (i.e., "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\yoursite"); do not check "Add project to working sets"
    • You should now have a new project with only a ".project" file in it.
    • Right click on your project, and select "Team > Share Project".
    • Select "VSS Configuration Wizard" from the popup menu.
    • Enter your VSS username, password, and VSS Directory (path to your srcsafe.ini file); click "Finish".
    • Now you should be able to right click on your project again, select "Team", and have all of your VSS commands available (get latest, check in, check out, synchronize, etc…)

     

    I hope this helps!

    Eric,

     

    Thanks for the response.  It doesn't appear that the vss plugin is installing correctly in Eclipse.  I tried your steps and when it got to the share project pop up, the only options I have are CVS and SVN.  I am using Eclipse 3.5 and CFEclipse 1.4.2.  Maybe the plugin isn't compatible with the newer versions.

     

    Thanks

    That could be.  I got a new computer a couple of months ago and my old

    one has been wiped, so I don't know what version of Eclipse I was

    using.  One thing I do remember is that the plugin was not compatible

    with 64-bit Eclipse, we had to use the 32-bit version.  So if that and a

    good old fashioned restart don't fix it, I'm not sure what to do.

     

    Thanks,

    My recollection is not nearly as detailed as Eric's But for what it is worth, I have used the plugin with an older version: Eclipse 3.4.x / XP / jvm 1.5+ . I think I may have also used it with 3.5. But I would not swear to that part.

    Thank you both for your replies.  Still no luck getting the plugin working. It may be time to consider a different solution especially since that plugin is no longer supported.

     

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Sorry to hear that. I have only installed on XP and never had problems. In fact I had to re-download 3.5 for today (using yoxos-ondemand). For grins I added the VSS plugin and it seemed to install fine. VSS shows up on the Team - Share Project menu. So at least that confirms it does work with Eclipse 3.5. Maybe it is a windows 7 issue (assuming that is your o/s ..)?

    I'm on XP also.  Still no luck with Eclipse, but I did get it working with CF Builder.  I think it may have been the jre version I was using.  Went back to 1.5 and noticed it was working.  Thanks all for your help.

    Yes, that is entirely possible. A lot of plugins require a minimum of 1.5+, so I tend to use 1.5 by default.  But I am glad to hear you finally got it working

     

    ( By the way, if you ever need to install a fresh version of Eclipse, with a certain configuration, I have had good luck using yoxos on demand.  It lets you customize your configuration. Just select the Eclipse version and pick the plugins you want added. You can even save the configuration as a template.  That is what I used to re-install 3.5 yesterday, and all my plugins worked right out of the box. )

     

    Cheers
