Integration with SourceSafe


Weilim Er (4612013) | asked Feb 07 '11, 6:05 a.m.
Hi,

As far as I know SourceSafe integrates with Visual Studio. So I'm just wondering, does SourceSafe work with the RTC for Visual Studio client?

It depends on what you mean by "work with".
Both SourceSafe and RTC can co-exist in a single Visual Studio instance.
But for each VS project/solution, you will need to pick whether SS or
RTC will be its source control provider.
Also, you can use SourceSafe as the version control provider, and RTC as
your task management and planning provider.

Cheers,
Geoff

If we specify VSS as the source control provider, can we still use RTC for build management?

It should still be possible to use RTC for build management, but several build features (all that relate to scm) will be missing - like comparison of builds, creating snapshot from build, comparing build with stream/workspace, new changesets in build etc.

What about integration of VSS checkins into RTC workitems? Is it possible to have the association between a changeset into Visual Studio's SCM and RTC's workitem? I've been trying to find that using Visual Studio plugin but can't find the way.
