    Version control - what would you recommend?

    Hi There,

    I am using QTP 9.5 with QC 9.0. We are looking into implementing version control into our scripts. What product would you recommend.

    Thanks

    You may be scolded because this has been asked several times. Although those that may scold should note that this question has never been thoroughly answered with specifics.

    If it's just QTP scripts, use same as developers.

    If QC as well, pick one from here :

    Otherwise wait for QC 10 which has version control built in.

    I'v successfully used Team Foundation Server and SVN with QTP scripts, but as Turbografix says, just use the same tool the developers use.

    We are currently using SVN and are about to add the QTP scripts into it - until now, we have been saving lots of Zipped Tests on a backed up network drive.

    Simple:

    Buy a set of HDD 320+ GB.

    Save the scripts as 1.0.0. Whenever you edit save it as 1.1.0 or 1.0.1 or 2.0.0 depending on the type of changes. Maintain an excel over the same shared folder -which keeps track of the latest version and which every person who edits the scripts needs to update. You can add something more using macros/VB scripting.

    I believe there was a checkin-checkout with TD for WR. Doesnt that exist anyone???

    Version Control is designed to eliminate weird processes like that.

    I personally prefer SVN. I use TortoiseSVN as my client on windows. very simple and nice.
