Help Setting Root VCS up ...

Something ain't working with how I configured my VCS root (Subversion) ... but I'm not sure what it is. Essentially, my question is two-fold: (1) How do I set up a VCS Root and (2) In a particular build configuration, how do I use that VCS Root and tell it to pull from the trunk folder only?

Here is the URL to the repository I'm working with: http://localhost:8080/svn/ProjectSolution

Under my repository I have three forlders ... branches, tags and trunk. The trunk has all the code I need to check out for a build.

Thanks - wg

you can use checkout rules to get sources from some (several) particular subdirectories.

For example, if sources are in http://localhost:8080/svn/ProjectSolution/trunk

you can add checkout rule to the root for the configuration:


Content of the "trunk" directory will be checked out on an agent.

For some other configuration you can use differend checkout rule (for example "branches/someBranchName=>.")

If you want to build sources from http://localhost:8080/svn/ProjectSolution/trunk only you can define http://localhost:8080/svn/ProjectSolution/trunk as Vcs root url and do not use checkout rules.
