Usage and Dependencies

Industry Usage: This category includes tools to support configuration management and version control of code and documentation.

Within Microsoft development environments, Visual SourceSafe, which is integrated with Visual InterDev and other components of the Visual Studio suite, supports version control and check-in/check-out of code. However, Visual SourceSafe has limitations; e.g. it does not provide version baselines and other more advanced features needed in a distributed team development environment.

SC Usage: SC uses Visual SourceSafe for code management. A more powerful tool is being sought as part of the budgeted Lifecycle Toolkit project in FY2002. For further information, please see category 1.2.7.
