"The project needs to be checked out"  XML
Forum Index » JCVS Web
Author Message

I get the following Error: "The project needs to be checked out"

Does that mean that before running JCVSWeb I always need to checkout the project
with a separate tool inorder to generate the necessary folders and Root,
Entries, Repository files?

If yes, what's the benefit of using JCVSWeb at all, if JCVS is not able to
create such folders itself?

I'm sure that JCVSWeb is able to check out on the server machine the cvs
repository content. I saw it with my eyes... but then you CANNOT get a copy of
the cvs machine on your local coputer, or in other words, the jCVSWeb can be
used only to browse the cvs repository - nothing else! I think that can be
improved !
Just adding few buttons like "download a tarball of the project" should make it
and it shouldn't be too much complicated. Unfortunately I have no time at the
moment, otherwise I would like to invest some time and effort to implement it!

Let me know your opinion...




thank's for the quick reply.

Meanwhile I tried the JCVS Servlet instead and it works great:
On the Servlet machine I define the local folder where to checkout to and just
trigger a checkout on demand from within the Servlet.

No idea, why doesn't work with JCVS Web.
Maybe I must use /temp instead of C:/temp in the config file?

Thank's for your offer to implement new features. Instead I rather would
appriciate some documentation about JCVS Web - similar to the Servlet one -
which is missing right now.

Probably I understood which is your problem. Each module has to be checked out
on the web server before you can browse it with your browser.
After you create the new view you have to click on My Home and then you should
be able to the list of all the existing views. Click on the green circle with a
tick mark inside. In this way you are asking at webapplication to checkout on
the server the module so that it can be browsed afterward. You don't need to
check out manually all your projects, otherwise this webapplication would be
completly useless...

The previous reply is correct.

Once you define a project, you must define at least one "view". Once the view is
defined, you must checkout that view with the green circle check icon. Once the
view is checked out, you can view it normally.
