I’m working since a couple of days with the Visual Paradigm SDE version for Eclipse.
Using the Subversion plug-in for Eclipse, my project shall be edited by severel persons.
First thing I did was creating a Java-Project and importing it to the repository location using the SVN plug-in.
Next step was opening SDE-EC and creating some diagrams like use-case-diagrams and a glossary-grid.
After saving the SDE-EC Project, a new folder had been created being called “vpproject”. It contains the .vpp file.
It also contains another folder “diagrams” where the diagrams are saved like “use-case-diagram1.vpucd”.
So whenever I update my project from repository and only change the diagram or the glossary-grid, I can’t immediately commit the project like I was used to do whithout Visual-Paradigm (only java-based projects), because it said there were no changes made.
I have to manually save the project via ‘File-> Save SDE-EC Project’, then selecting the project in the package explorer and refreshing the project. Then it notices the changes and I can commit the changes.
So my first question is, whether its possible to auto-save or auto-refresh the package-explorer to notice the changes at once? (Avoiding the manual part)?
Next thing I tried was to use the SVN-support integrated in SDE (Teamwork -> Open Teamwork Client).
But the problem I encountered was, that I wasn’t able to checkout my project. I tried to import the project to another repository etc. but nothing worked.
When I created a new project in Eclipse (not a Java-project!), creating a .vpp file with SDE-EC , I was able to import this project to a repository and checkout the project aswell without any problems.
That means it was possible to commit, update within the SDE-EC Modeling-Perspective. I also noticed the .dif and .mmh files in this repository.
Those files were missing in the repository of the existing java-project mentioned above.
Second question here: Why isn’t it possible to checkout the existing project in order to use the commit, update functionality?
Does it matter what way of synchronizing your project with the repository you choose (via the eclipse-based SVN function (team-> commit) or via the SDE build-in SVN support) ?
Thanks in advance,
