I am using CVS plug in for eclipse for maintaining my code. I have observed some time there are irregularities in the code while committing code through eclipse in cvs. I am not able to figure out what are the reasons behind this kind of behavior. Also people always recommend tools like wincvs for maintaining code in cvs instead of eclipse plugin . Can any one tell me what are the possible reasons behind this kind of behavior???
The biggest problem with CVS in Eclipse is CVS. CVS isn't always intuitive, especially when it comes to merging branches and it is infamous for its lack of ability to archive empty directories or handle file/directory name changes gracefully. I can think of no benefit to using an external GUI tool for CVS when you have an Eclipse CVS-based project. I can, however, think of a liability or 2, since Eclipse isn't as aware of filesystem changes done outside itself as some apps are.
The subversion plug-in, that one I have issues with. But Eclipse CVS support is top-notch.
"privilege" comes from the Latin words for "private" and "law" (legal) and dates to feudal times. To "claim privilege" meant that you were above the laws that applied to the common people.
