General Board / Model change notice
« on: February 13, 2008, 05:00:33 am »
I'm on my 28th day of trial and at yesterday's team meeting the project managers asked, "If I add a Use case or change the scenario for already built code, how do my designers/programmers know that I just made a change and that they have to modify their code?" Anyone have a change notice process that works for their team?

General Board / subversion source control check in error
« on: February 11, 2008, 07:30:42 am »
I'm using subversion
svn --version
svn, version 1.4.6 (r28521)
  compiled Dec 20 2007, 16:19:22

and trying to get packages controlled using EA 7.0 build 818.

Here are the steps to test subversion acc. to the EA whitepaper.

2. Open a command prompt in DOS.
3. Navigate to the directory that will hold your Working Copy directory.
4. Add and commit the temporary file to the repository using the following
svn add <fileName>
svn lock <fileName>
5. Now, update the file from the repository, lock the file. To do this use the
following commands:
svn update <fileName>
svn lock <fileName>
6. Edit and save the file using an editor.
7. Now commit the file once more using the following command:
svn commit <fileName> -mA meaningful comment.

Here is what I had to do to get subversion to work from the command line.

4. insert a "svn commit <fileName>" between the add and lock
7. insert a "svn unlock <fileName>" before the last commit.

Without this unlock, I get an authorization failed error message.
This is the same error message I get from EA
when I try to perform a "check in" operation on a controlled package.
I have no trouble putting a package under control and keeping it checked out.
I just can't ever check it back in.

Is there some subversion or EA configuration that allows one to commit a locked file?


Bugs and Issues / baseline notes
« on: February 15, 2008, 04:16:35 am »
Typing a carriage return while entering notes on a create baseline dialog executes baseline creation. There's no way to type a carriage return into the note - though the presence of the scroll bars on the right of the text entry box certainly suggest that was the intent.
