This topic explains how to share projects and related test assets by checking them in and out of your existing source control system.
Sharing Projects and Assets with any Source Control System
Key project artifacts are in ASCII. This makes it easy to maintain them via source control, and merge changes from multiple team members in a concurrent development environment.
To share projects and test assets using any source control system:
- Ensure that your test assets (test cases, user-defined stubs, and so on) are stored within your project.
- Add the project to source control.
Other team members can access the project files by checking them out from source control.
Using a Team Project Set File (.psf) to Share the Project Across the Team
Once one team member creates a project, that team member can create a Team Project Set File (.psf) which can then be shared by other members of the team. Doing so allows every team member to create their Eclipse Projects in the same uniform way. This is a necessary step for importing tasks from the automated nightly test process.
To export a Team Project Set File:
- Select File> Export. The Export Wizard displays.
- Within the Export Wizard, select Team> Team Project Set, and then click the Next button.
- Select the projects to be included in the Team Project Set File by selecting the corresponding check boxes
- Enter the location where the Team Project Set File will be saved and click the Finish button.
To create a Project from an imported Team Project Set File:
- Select File> Import. The Import Wizard displays.
- Within the Import Wizard, select Team> Team Project Set, and then click the Next button.
- Browse to the desired Team Project Set and click the Finish button. The tests you selected display in the Test Case Explorer.
