Hi, I have a java project in Eclipse. I make changes to this project from different computers. I think this is a good opportunity to learn and practice some source control. Is there a source control system which will allow me to do this very easily ? How about Git ? Can someone please give me an outline of the main steps needed to setup this thing with Git, preferably within eclipse itself ? I don't need each and every step to prepare the whole system. I only need the main steps like - download and install git on both machines, rent a server and create a repo on it, grant both computers access to the server etc.

Thank you.

Sid,
Git is a good choice. GitHub is the standard host. They offer a paid version (private repositories) and a free version (anyone can see your code.)

GitHub has excellent tutorials on setup. Rather than re-write them, take a look and ask us about what puzzles you.

You can set up an SVN repository with Google Code. If you do that, you must give the code a license which must be open‑source but only people who know the project name can view it and only people who have the password can change anything.

There are doubtless many other possibilities.
