Hello, I just installed CF Builder 2016 and the features are fantastic. There is one vital feature that I'm not sure how to enable. Whenever a file is locked by another user in our source control software my old IDE would warn me that it was locked and would not let me edit it. CF Builder 2016 does not do that. It will let me open and modify the file even though it's locked by someone else. Is there a setting that I can change so that it will not open locked files in source control? I'm on Windows 10. This is quite an important aspect of software development so I'm sure it has been addressed somehow. I just don't know where to look to enable that feature.
I'm aware that it's eclipse based and a version control plugin might be needed to check files in and out but I'm just looking to block a user (me) when someone else has a file checked out. Can that be accomplished with a setting or is a plugin required? We use Serena - PCVS Version Manager (188.8.131.52)
I don't have the answer for your question. But I understand what you're trying to explain here. So for clarity, I'll share the information.
Your referring to is optimistic and pessimistic concurrency locking strategies.
So what you're asking is to change from a possible optimistic strategy to the pessimistic strategy.
If you don't get a warning when the document has changed. Then there is no concurrency locking strategy at all, which is a bad software development practice.
Hope you get your answer.
I suspect you need to install a plugin for Serena - PCVS.
