Martin Tomes,

At the moment, I am no idea to manage versioning about ModelMaker,
even I have less experience in SubVersion/cvs also. All the idea I just get
from several document only.

The reasons for me to considering put ModelMaker data to versioning
control system are the following guides from the manual(v8.0 demo) what
I have read:

- When using project bundles it is sufficient to add the <model>.mpb file
to version control... (exact wording in manual)
- Strongly suggests put the new code on ModelMaker (Model Code) then
apply it to Delphi unit. Keep this cycle in whole development;
- Itís a good idea to use a version control system and put the model files
under version control too. Although a model contains everything that is
needed to (re-)generate the source files...(exact wording in manual)
- If some new coding is added in Delphi IDE but has somethings wrong there,
ModelMaker will not import from Delphi. So if you don't aware, and
re-generate again, the code in Delphi will be lost! (Oh... horrible!!)
What I read from manual are:
"...When refreshing the unit, ModelMaker assumes it's reading
a 'compilable unit'. If you for example have omitted a single begin or
'end;' or worse, comment
out something, have unterminated strings etc. class and method import
will be in trouble and
not detect your error but simply remove all 'unwanted' methods. Since
ModelMaker detected a
change the unit is auto-generated and immediately after you saved the
unit is reloaded with
disastrous results. Experience shows that it's easy to loose lots of
work instantly..."
(exact wording in manual)
