Version control v/s Shared repository
Is shared repository like version control.If we saved all the script files in version control is it as good as having them in a shared repository.Both shared and object repository do the same isn't it having a centralised place to store all the file/objects,and not having to worry about loose any scripts accidentally, and having a controlled way of making changes to the scripts.
Althought I know they both are different but achieve the same,still not 100% percent sure that if we got one
there isn't a need for another.
Can someone help.
Thanks in advance
Re: Version control v/s Shared repository
Using a shared Object Repository or using a per-Action Object Repostitory has absolutely nothing to do with putting your QTP tests and libs under code control Two seperate activities, with the only thing in common being that both activities use the term, "repository".
Use QTP's online help to read up on and understand per-Action and shared Object Repositories.
You will need to select, purchase and use a code control tool of your choice, independent of the QTP IDE, should you decide to put your tests a libs under version control.

P.S. I do not work with Quality Center. Those of you who do, is there a built-on version control system with that tool, or one that "integrates" with that tool?
