Using PVCS with SilkTest
Using SilkTest with PVCS allows you to manage your SilkTest test files with
a powerful software configuration management tool. You can retrieve and run
the latest version or any earlier version of a script, suite, include file, or
testplan at any time in a consistent, repeatable manner. You can keep track of
who makes a change, when, and why, and also ensure that files aren't
inadvertently overwritten or lost.
Note This chapter assumes that you are familiar with PVCS. If not,
you should consult your PVCS documentation.
