Hello

We are planning on migrating (keeping history) our existing VSS to SVN. We have SSRS, SSIS projects and SQL to move.

Can I use VSSAnalyze on a specific folder rather than the entire DB?

Regarding the structure in SVN (I can’t see the need for branching) for these types of projects so I’m thinking a simple structure like:
Reporting
.SSIS
..Project 1
..Project 2
.SSRS
..Project 1
..Project 2
.SQL
..DB1
...Functions
...Procedures
...Triggers
..DB2
...Functions
...Procedures
...Triggers


Any thoughts, suggestions and warnings are appreciated.

Thanks

We did use SVN and a plug in for VS called Ankh for roughly 6 months.

At the end of that we migrated to TFS and couldn’t be happier.

The free-for all that is SVN checkouts did not work well with our team.

A few thoughts..

Migrating a VSS repository to SVN can be a nightmare, specially if your VSS repository contains shared files between projects or if any permanent deletes has been performed.

Do you use labels in VSS? In SVN, branches must be used to replicate the VSS's labels. Even if you don't see usage in branches now, it would be a good idea to plan the structure with them in mind.

SVN doesn't have exclusive checkouts like VSS. However, the same idea can be achieved with locks. Property svn:needs-lock can be useful in this context.

How does TFS deal with SSRS Reports? I've noticed when creating a SSRS Project in BIDS/Visual Studio I cannot have subfolders like I do in the SSRS Report Manager.

I think we have a shared TFS server running at work so could be an option for us.

Thanks

We have one solution for each department with individual projects for the subfolders. Each can be configured to deploy to the desired folder on the server.
You wont have the hierarchy in the VS solution but it wont matter after it is set up.

Quick note on the SVN locking, we experimented with locks via Ankh and although it was supported it gave no prompt when editing a locked file. It did say locked in source explorer and also in the file system but having to check each time was a liability.
