SCCBridge: Free Remote Access Client for VSS


Need to access your VSS projects when you’re not on the company network?

Currently, Eric Sink’s company, SourceGear,
sells a product called SourceOffSite that provides
remote access to VSS databases.

The next version of Visual SourceSafe will
include a
feature that allows you to access your source-controlled projects in Visual Studio
over the Internet
.

If you can’t wait for the next version of Visual SourceSafe, can’t afford SourceOffSite,
or are just interested like me, there’s a new freeware app you might consider.

The following announcement was posted by Arthur
Neterovsky
on the microsoft.public.vsnet.vss newsgroup last week:

Hello.


 

I’m
glad to announce the new version of SCCBridge project.


 

This
is freeware project that implements remote access

to
version control systems (including SourceSafe) via web

service.


 

The
following features are implemented in the current version:

   
web service;

   
a bridge to SourceSafe database;

   
client-side console application, which also can be used as

      a
simple comandline building tool;

   
client-side GUI application for visual manipulating of remote version

      control
system;

   
integration module for Visual Studio .NET 2003 (NEW!!!).


 

The
SCCBridge project is implemented as open sources project, so feel

free
to download it from my home page.


 

From
sources you can study how to:

   
use SourceSafe OLE Automation from .NET application;

   
upload/download files using DIME;

   
compress files;

   
use COM Interop and so on.


 

Besides
sources, this is just useful freeware tool.

Read
more about the project and its features at my

home
page (address see below).


 

P.S.
I’ll be glad to receive any feedback and I’ll answer to

        any
questions concerning the project.

    If we’re on the suject of third party tools, note that there’s also a not free but very cheap alternative to Source Gear: http://www.vssconnect.com/ only 29.95$. Havn’t tried it myself so i can’t comment.
    A neat little explorer add-in that i did try myself and found to be very useful is SourceXplore: http://www.epocalipse.com let’s you check inout by right clicking a file in windows explorer.

    I installed and it worked very well using the included replace for VSS Explorer. I have since found a bug in the implementation of the VS.NET 2003 source control provider. But when I emailed Arthur, he immediately knew what the problem was and emailed me the fixed binary file.

  3. Pal says:

    Can it be integrated with Visual build type of tools? VSS can easily be integrated using the commandlines.

  4. I assume so. Contact Arthur for more details: http://www.nesterovsky-bros.com/.

    I can’t get it to work at all.

    Well, we are trying out SourceAnyWhere from DynamSoft for VSS remote access. It’s really amazing in speed and stability. Also, it can cross platform.

    I got to know this tool from an article at http://www.bettervssremoting.com“>http://www.bettervssremoting.com that makes a very detailed comparison among several VSS remote tools in the market.
