Multiple users sharing(and updating) the same project without use of Git or any other repositories.
I have developed multiple test projects in ReadyAPI by now. I need to share the projects with other team members in the technology team. I was wondering what I need to do to make sure the changes they make to the projects in ReadyAPI on their own machine would not overwrite the projects I am working on on my machine.
One of the team members, downloaded the projects from the network and opened it in his own machine. After making changes and saving the changes, we noticed it did overwrite what I was doing on my own machine.
So, I still need to share the projects with other team members and they need to use the projects but making sure whatever they do, will not overwrite the projects I'm working on.
Please kindly advise.
if you need to share and change the same testing project, I believe using Git is the right way, and I am not aware of any (better) alternative.
The benefits are:
- you can collaborate (doing changes simultaneously)
- you can track all changes
- you have a shared repository, which can be controlled/secured
Though, you need to get familiar with Git.
If you stay with a single XML format you can't have all these benefits, it's a large file which changes at many places every time.
