continuous delivery of software

as i stated elsewhere i'm just a java amateur (no pro at all)

anyway, i'd like to develop this new app using agile ideas
(i'm using eclipse 3.2)

one of agile points is continuous delivery of software; even just for myself, how can i control, check, index, save, mantain my several versions of my progressing app?
as i'm alone (cant do pair programming ), i never felt the need of tortoise or similar - instead i use eclipse's history to check older versions
but now, imagine i make a "deliver"; in two days i make another: how to control and save all that?

thanks in advance

You need a source code version control system. A good choice is Subversion.

I second the subversion recommendation. You will also need the Subclipse plugin for Eclipse. TortoiseSvn for the Windows Explorer might be handy, too.

thanks to both of you

well, i guess i have two main criterias: very easy learning curve and easy to use from eclipse
what do you think should be the best bet, considering i have modest aims?

well, i downloaded Subversion and, using this tutorial i used eclipse to download subclipse
now i am at the crossroad:
how do i install subversion?
in eclipse, i opened svc view and when i open "add cvn repository" window, which url should i put in? i tried file:///myPathToMyEclipseProj, but without result

any help would be great

thanks in advance

EDIT:
i found out how to entry path (rigth clik on proj, team, share project, svn)
then i followed the windows, but at the end all eclipse froze!
maybe because i havnt installed subversion, but i've no idea how to do it

never mind: i first downloaded some packages, not the windows install

anyway, during install it complained about my apache version: i'm afraid to upgrade because i use it with php 5 and i'm afraid something might go (definitively) wrong... dont know what to do

can i do it without a server at all?

hmm... improving anyway
i made an apache clean install
i made a Subversion clean install
i guess eclipse made a clean install of subclipse
but at the end i get this message:

Couldn't open a repository
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///C:%5Crepositorio/projHibernate3'

svn: Can't open file '\C:\repositorio\proj\format': A sintaxe do nome do ficheiro, do nome do direct�rio ou do nome de volume � incorrecta.

mkdir -m "Initial import." file:///C:\repositorio
Bad URL passed to RA layer
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Local URL 'file://' contains only a hostname, no path




how i did it:
went to readme
found this:

svnadmin create /path/to/repos



- this creates a new directory, 'repos'. Make sure that

/path/to/repos/ is on local disk, NOT a network share.


then my repository showed up in eclipse

so far so good

Sounds like you are getting close...

As long as you are working locally, using a file url, you won't need Apache for SVN at all.
