Trying to setup AgentSVN in Powerbuilder

Post by dnicoll » Thu May 24, 2012 2:22 pm

I'm trying to get Source Control set up in an existing PowerBuilder project.

I have a specific place that I need to put the files in my SVN Repository.

It needs to go into the pbl/trunk directory.

I have an already existing PB project that I want to add in there.

All of the pbls are in the /ctrk/src/pbl directory and have been separated out into their own directories.

How do I define the Aux folder and project to get the files in the right place?

You are trying to connect to a http protocol Subversion repository.

Now this is fine provided you have all your security settings correct, your login and password correct, your configuration settings correct etc. etc.

The better option is to first try an easier configuration and by that I recommend trying to connect PowerBuilder using a local file repository.

If you can get this much simpler local configuration to work then the remote setup should also work.

So as a first step I would strongly suggest first trying to follow the simple local setup as described here:

http://zeusedit.com/agent/pb/classic.html

These are the setup steps we used to test Agent SVN with Powerbuilder and they where found to work.

These same steps should work for you.

But if you find these simple steps do not work then the more complicated steps you are trying are definitely not going to work.

I will definitely try out the local files method first.

In those instructions you pointed to, it says:
IMPORTANT: As shown above the SVN Ignore filter needs to be changed from its default to the file extensions as shown. These extensions represent the files that PowerBuilder doesn't want added to the source control.
There is no picture above to show what the SVN Ignore Filter should be set to. What needs to be excluded?

Perfect. I look forward to your feedback :)

With regards to your original question of binding and existing project to an existing repository.

While the tutorial will not directly answer this question (as it shows how to import a new project into a new repository) it will give you a feel for how the software works.

To help answer the original binding question refer to this web page:

http://www.zeusedit.com/agent/com/binding.html

If you run into any issues please make another post.
In those instructions you pointed to, it says:..

Thanks for that feedback. You have identified a bug in the web page.

Prior to Agent SVN Version 2.00 there was an ignore filter option used in the import process.

With the release of Agent SVN Version 2.00 the entire import process was improved and this removed the need for the ignore filters entirely.

The details on the web page has now been updated.

In addition the web page now has a link to a YouTube video showing how to connect PowerBuilder to Subversion using Agent SVN.

Cheers Jussi
