web access.. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    i have a query about VSS web access.

    Can any body tell me why we can't perform some of the useful operations like (labelling, get on label etc ) using vss web access?

    If VSS web access doesn't allow this the imp operations then in my point of view its not very helpful.

    There are few source control tools like source offsite allows all these functionalities, y microsoft vss couldn't do this..

    thanks

  • Hi Ali,

    You're most likely talking about stand-alone applications offering functionality similar to VSS Explorer when accessing VSS databases over Internet... VSS 2005 Internet Plug-in does not compete in this area, as it was intended to be used only from VisualStudio.

    I'm pretty sure SourceOffSite or other 3rd party tools providing access to VSS databases over Internet can't allow Labeling or GetOnLabel functionality when used from VisualStudio. The specification of the MSSCCI interface doesn't allow any of this functionality (like Labels, getting specific versions from source control, etc).
