Versioning projects in the repository

You can version a project in the repository without adding the project to the Workbench.

  1. Switch to the command link CVS Repository Exploring perspective or add the command link CVS Repositories view to the current perspective.
  2. In the CVS Repositories view, expand a repository location and find the project you wish to version.
  3. Right-click on the project and select Tag as Version.
  4. Enter the name of the version you wish to create.
  5. Click OK to close the dialog and create the version.

Tip: You can browse existing versions of your project by clicking on the Details button in the Tag Resources dialog. Clicking Refresh from Repository should populate the Existing Versions list. It is sometimes helpful to see existing versions before naming your new version.

Tip: If the version tag you wish to apply already exists on some of the resources to be versioned, you can perform a Tag with Existing instead. This operation will move an existing tag to the selected resources and can be used to move both version and branch tags. If the tag you wish to apply is not show in the list, you can click Refresh from Repository. If this doesn't find the tag, you can click Configure Tags which opens a dialog that allows you to search for tags on specific files in the repository.
