Dealing with project documentation


Ron de Jong1 (1611) | asked Apr 19 '07, 5:36 a.m.
Hi,

we are starting up a project and the first thing we need to do is put some
project documentation under version control. Are there already ideas/ways of
working defined on how to do that? We tried a couple of ways (drag & drop in
the package explorer), but working with documentation from the Package
Explorer does not feel right. Besides that you have no way to structure your
documentation (you are not allowed to create packages in non-Java projects).
So we would probably need another view next to the Package Explorer
specifically for documentation, or maybe project documentation could be made
visible under Team Articacts.

Another thing is that you want to set at least the restriction to the
documentation project/component that parallel development (we dont want to
merge Word documents, do we) is not allowed. Is there a way to do that?

Kind regards,
Ron de Jong

Phillipe is right in that the resource perspective, or more specifically
the resource or project navigators will give you easier access to
documentation projects. You can create the directory structure of your
choice in these plain projects without having to worry about Jazz cruft.

For now, we don't support marking files as locked for editing to avoid
merging. However, this will be supported in the first product release.

Ron,

Generally I use the "Resource perspective" of Eclipse (Window>Open
Perspective>Other>Resource) when I want to map
the organization of my project to a directory stucture which has nothing
to do with Java.

For the merging issue on Word document, I will ping somebody from the
SCM team.

kind regards
