By reading specifications I found out that Adobe Version Cue 3 uses webdav to handle files. My first thought here is why aint they using svn or cvs. And how should I then work with Adobe Bridge as a developer.
What I would like to do is to handle every project and all files with Version Cue. I can setup and use documents, psd files and life is just good. What I’m getting irretated on is when I develop, how am I suppose to handle this?
Should I use Flash IDE for the *.fla files and *.as. Well, If they built a decent actionscript editor I might. But the reality is that there is so many good editors out there. Myself and my dev team uses Eclipse with FDT, a wonderfull plugin. Then we have for example Flash Developer, and I would guess that every serious programmer uses another actionscript editor than the Flash IDE.
Tried to contact and talk with Adobe about how to connect to Version Cue and handle flash project without using Bridge. There is the webdav interface in Windows but it still doesnt really do it. Best senario is if I could access my Version Cue project like I do with SVN or CVS. I could check in and merge my classes and lock *.fla files to skip conflicts with other developers on the same project.
After trying every plugin I could find to Eclipse I still only could access with the WebDAV, could se the files but not touch it. So well, whats the solution? Keep the project in Version Cue with art, files, specs. and keep the Flash part in a SVN repository somewhere else. Keeping everything locked up at one place […]
