First let me say "Thank you" for writing and offering this article. It's an important topic, and there are a lot of good things here. My criticism is that the English prose in the article could use some review. There are mistakes in the usage, and generally I find it difficult to follow your ideas as written.

Hi there, the article actually came from my "developers how to guide" for our new VSS framework...funny enough, I had zero comments from the guys hence I was a terrible self editor

Thanks for the feedback.

Chris,
I've struggled for some time with trying to find a good VSS framework, and I think you've provided my answer. Thanks for the great article! I have some questions...

1. The last screen shot of VSS shows, in the Production project, a \CC001\MYAPP project and a \MYAPP project (along with the \STARS project). Is this how you leave it once the change is in production?

Alright, maybe I had just one question...

Steve MacDonald

Hi Steve

Actually, I forgot to discuss archiving projects, even in part 2 of the article. How and when you clean up is up to you. One of the benefits from this particular model is that you can go back to any "production" release of the source code, and then reapply dev/test environment code to return the environment back to this point in time. As we branch+share code, any removals will of course break the VSS version tree at this point and can render the merge processes within VSS useless, so take care when and where you issue the removal.

Another question asked offline is in relation to the /production project. You will notice that we create a FULL share+branch (copy) of all source code and merge the altered code from the test project into it. You could retain the single set of source in the production project, but I wouldnt recommend it if you relatively new to VSS. A full duplication of code then merging makes live much easier and safer in the long run.

Cheers

Ck
