Summary A TortoiseSVN-wrapper plugin for the PL/SQL-Developer IDE

Many software developers like to have version control functionality integrated within their IDE. When it comes to Subversion support for the PL/SQL Developer IDE, the only option until now apparently is to integrate Subversion through Microsoft's outmoded SCC-API using the PL/SQL Developer Version Control Plugin in combination with an SVN SCC Proxy. That of course means to sacrifice a lot of Subversion's true potential.

TortoiseSVN is one of the best Subversion clients around providing easy access to most Subversion features. So the idea came up to write a wrapper plugin around TortoiseSVN, which turned out to be relatively easy using using the PL/SQL Plugin API.

This work is inspired by the Delphi Add-In for TortoiseSVN project hosted on this site, and some code has been adopted from there. However, this plugin aims to support more features like the Subversion support found in the JEDI Code Library for the various Delphi environments. Note: Don't confuse the latter with the JEDI Version Control System, which is completely different version management system.

Mission

The goal of this project is to integrate the TortoiseSVN client into the PL/SQL Developer IDE.

The scope of this project is the following:

  • We will use Object Pascal (Delphi) as programming language on the Win32 platform for now.
  • This project does not aim to create a fully integrated SVN plugin based on the SVN client library.

Installation

The installation routine is simple:
  • Install the latest TortoiseSVN client.
  • Install the latest CollabNet Subversion Command-Line Client from http://www.collab.net/downloads/subversion , if you going to use the rename function.
  • Download the setup file from Documents & files
  • Run this setup file and follow the instructions
  • Restart PL/SQL Developer.
If you still have problems with the installation look at the manual
