Query Regarding DTR ?


Can we maintain non java code (for ex: word documents, VB projects etc...) in DTR?

Is there a stand alone version of DTR which can be installed on client and used for check in and check out of the resources? ( not through Netweaver Developer Studio on Client Machines )

Thank You

    Hello Reed,

    To my knowledge yes dtr can version any type of file. without using NWDS one can use dtr using the .bat files provided in the nwds/eclipse plugins section for eg - C:\Program Files\SAP\JDT\eclipse\plugins\com.tssap.dtr.client.vfs.

    i think you have to first create a dtr client and configure for a dtr server/workspace.

    hope this would help!!!

    • Hi Reed,

      Although a "slim" client would be ideal, the corporate users can also use only the DTR Perspective in NWDS to store their documents (or VB projects). The Eclipse architecture ensures that plugins are loaded on demand - so although NWDS contains many plugins, these will not be loaded so the memory footprint should not be so high.

      To work with documents (or other projects), you need to proceed as follows:

      1) Create a "Client" in DTR

      2) Create a suitable hierarchy of "Workspace Folders","Workspaces" and "Folders"

      3) Sync the empty folders to local machine, and under these folder place the files (and folders) you wish to add to DTR

      4) Refresh the "Repository Browser", and you will see these "new" files and folders.

      5) USe the context menu to "Add" these files/folders to an activity, and checkin the activity.

      So you do not need a "project" in NWDS to store things in DTR - you can work purely from the DTR Perspective, and use it as a version control system to store your files of any kind.

      Hope that helps.
