Versioning binary artifacts


Luca Martinucci (872272100) | asked Oct 18 '11, 11:46 a.m.
Does RTC store all versioned elements in the database?
Or is it possible to reference some elements (e.g. the binary artifacts) just by a link to the filesystem?
I am configuring RTC to version both the source code and the compiled binaries, and we are worrying about the growth of the database.

Yes, RTC-SCM stores all versioned elements in the database.

When you say "reference some elements by a link in the file system", do
you mean with a symbolic link? That is supported on Unix today, and is
in plan for the next release to be supported on Windows (for file
systems that support symbolic links, like Windows 7).

WRT database growth, the ability to delete a version is in plan for the
next RTC release.

Cheers,
Geoff
