Thank you very much for your insight... to clear things up though...
There is a shared development environment which everyone currently works in
which then gets tested with production-like data in a stage environment which
then gets moved up to production once it is tested.
No worries... we all know the dangers of posting directly to production. :-)
Anyway, I will present that to the rest of the developers as well.
Quoting jsWalter :
Matthew, if I may...
I have worked in many different, multi-developer environments, PC,
What I've found works best (for me) is...
- each developer has his/her own tree under IIS (I use Apache,
- each developer has their own "sandbox" there
- they checkin-out code to this sandbox and test it via IIS and
- each morning each developer does an UPDATE to their sandbox to
get yesterdays work from others
- this gives each developer their own space to work in without
on any one else and without effecting production
- at some point in development cycle, after things have been unit
tested in their sandbox and checked back in, the admin/grand
does a UPDATE within:
- now regressive testing is done to make sure what Walter did
does not break what Carol did.
- once approved, then admin UPDATES to production.
This gives you 3 separate spaces:
- testing (by developer)
- staging (common - only admin UPDATE)
- production (only admin UPDATE)
The idea of a developer checking new code into production to "see
goes" scares me! Especially if you have multiple developers all
their own thing and checking things into production.
Or did I completely miss read this?
With this scenario, CVS can be used as it stands. Cross platform,
Hope this helped.
