Hi all,

Like in other projects, we are studying how to add a version control to our development with APEX.
Since SQLDeveloper offers both Subversion and CVS clients to control development and we can access to APEX user's schema (FLOWS_030000) , it looks possible but also tedious.

Any experience or idea with it?

Thanks in advance.

    Hello Pau,

    Take a look at my blog post on backing up Apex applications, available here -

    http://jes.blogs.shellprompt.net/2006/12/12/backing-up-your-applications/

    I show how you can use the command-line APEXExport tool to export your applications, which can be easily scripted and extended to automatically check-in the Subversion etc.

    Also, Dimitri wrote a post on SQLDeveloper and Subversion integration here -

    http://dgielis.blogspot.com/2008/05/using-subversion-in-sql-developer-easy.html

    I actually use the automated export a lot, since it's nice to know that you always have copies of your apps incase the 'worst' should happen.

    Hope this helps,

    John.

    Thanks John.

    BTW you have given me answer for another question we had about the automatic deployment ;-)

    So, thanks again.

    Hi Pau,

    No problem, glad to help.

    Does that mean I get double-points for answering the other question too? ;)

    John.
