Better Late Than Never

Just as traction is growing for more feature rich and complete version control systems [1], Oracle has added support for CVS to JDeveloper. How hard would it have been to include support for subversion as well?

[1] Current favourites here at halfcooked are Darcs and Subversion, but don't forget GNU arch, BitKeeper and SourceGear Vault, amongst others.

Have you looked at Trac[1]? It's a kind of hybryd issue tracker and version control system, with more than a hint of Wiki.

I've both tried it. I'm still fighting to get everyone to accept that VSS is a bad idea. ;-)

Simon, indeed. It uses Subversion as the version control system.

We've already begun investigating Subversion integration for future JDeveloper releases.
