Source Management and Change Sets

The Tasktop Team Connector for Borland StarTeam introduces support for context based change sets when working with resources stored in a Borland StarTeam source repository. When a task is active, edited files are automatically collected under a change set that is associated with the active task.

Note: source management is only available when the StarTeam Eclipse Client is installed. For best results, it is recommended to operate the Synchronize view in the Change Set presentation.

When a file or change set is committed, the commit dialog is populated with a comment describing the associated task. This comment is displayed in the Eclipse history view, and can be used to trace a resource change back to the task that caused it. Additionally, a process item will automatically be selected, linking the task to the files being committed.
