Eclipse Workbench User Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Working with another user

Instructions were given explaining how to create a project and commit it to the repository. First a repository location was specified. Next the project was shared with that location and the HEAD branch and the resources were added then committed.

The repository currently contains the project and the two files that were committed (file1.txt and file2.txt).

It's time to find that co-worker (let's call him Fred) to work through some steps with you (for the remainder your name is Jane). This section will demonstrate how two people can work on the same project and simultaneously commit changes to the repository. Specifically, the following actions will be taken:

  • Fred will import the project to his Workbench
  • Fred will make changes to file1.txt and file2.txt.
  • You will update these new changes and also add a new file called file3.txt.
  • Fred will make more changes to some files while you change the same files. Fred will release his changes first.
  • You will have to resolve the conflicts between files that you both changed.
Here is some terminology commonly used to describe changes:
incoming Changes that are in the repository, which you have not yet updated to.
outgoing Changes that you are committing.
conflict Both you and the repository have modifications to the same resource.
