File Placement in the Source Code Control System (Windows CE 5.0)
When you add a file to your source code control system, the source code control system does the following:
- Manages access to the file and maintains a record of changes to the file
- Records when a file was changed, and by whom
In Platform Builder, you can place entire projects, individual files, or workspace files in the source code control system.
Platform Builder workspace (.pbxml) files contain information about the workspace and changes to files, such as the following:
- Location of files
- Additions of files to projects
- Locations of files in the source code control system
After changing any of these elements, you must check out, update, and check in the .pbxml file.
You can add a project or OS design to your source code control system any time after you create the project or OS design. You cannot check-in Catalog items.
You can set Platform Builder options so each time you insert files into your project, Platform Builder prompts for confirmation to include the files in the source code control system. You can also put files in the system explicitly. You cannot check-in Catalog items.
If some or all of the files included in your project are not in the source code control system, you can add them individually to the source code control system.
When you remove files from a project, you might first want to remove the files from source code control.
Not all source code control systems allow users to remove files from a source code control system. Some systems require source code control administrators to remove them, and the administrator might need to use the source code control system's administrative application.
