Using Team Foundation Server with Adobe DreamWeaver

    Question

  • Can someone please let me know if it is possible to use Team Foundation Server with the Adobe Dreamweaver IDE? I know there are plugins for Eclipse.  I was wondering if there were any for this product.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Aaron,

    I'm not aware of an integration for Adobe Dreamweaver.  It is something that we (at Teamprise) have considered and have done some basic investigatory work on, but not made any firm plans for.  Our company has released Source Control integrations with Dreamwever in the past so understand the problem space pretty well.

    If you have a requirement for a Dreamweaver plug-in, I suggest you drop a line to support@teamprise.com and let them know - feedback from customers regarding a potential market is one of the things that influences our potential prouct direction.  Information such as required operating system, potential numbers of users etc are all useful.

    Many thanks,

    Martin.

  • As far as I understand, Dreamweaver doesn't support MSSCCI, but has a different integration to VSS databases.  Dreamweaver uses a C++ based API for Source Code repository providers - hence details of what platform you would want it to work from are important.

    FYI, the MSSCCI is an interface for talking to source control systems popularised by Visual Source Safe.  It has some limitations but has been adopted by a number of vendors as a way of getting applications to talk to source control systems.  Microsoft provide a MSSCCI provider for Team Foundation Server that allows you to use TFS for source control from older applications (such as Visual Studio 2003 etc).

    The MSSCCI provider can be found here.

    In the meantime, you can use the Microsoft Team Explorer client to check-in / check-out files outside of Dreamweaver or use the Teamprise Explorer client from a non Windows OS.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

  • Thanks for the response Martin.  We are also looking at using Eclipse with the CFEclipse plugin and TeamPrise.

  • Aaron,

    do you know if Adobe Dreamweaver supports the Msscci specification? Does it integrate with Visual SourceSafe? If yes, than we have Team Foundation Server Msscci Provider.

  • Hi Michal

    Yes I belive it does there is an option for Visual Source Safe when you setup a remote site.  I do not see one for Team Foundation server.  I am a little confused on the MSSCCI provider. Any help or references would be great.

  • Dreamweaver supports WebDAV Protocol. So It is possible to interact with Team Foundation Server.

  • Hi Martin

    A lot has changed since 2006 when you replied to this post. I am asking the question again if it is possible to use Team Foundation Server 2010 with the Adobe Dreamweaver IDE ? Please advice.

    Thanks

    Yes, but only via a round-about way.

    There is a piece of software called SvnBridge ( http://svnbridge.codeplex.com/ ) that proxies SVN commands to a TFS server. It is available both as a server-side SVN-emulation website, as well as a small local piece of software you can run locally.

    The idea here being that you'd set up SvnBridge to connect to your TFS server, and then tell Dreamweaver to connect to your local SvnBridge installation. Sorted. :)

    Thanks - Sam
