Source code control for Notes development
- The only source code control system specifically for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino
- Check-in/check-out: Prevents save conflicts; creates detailed change history
- Version control: Store, compare, and restore previous versions of design elements
- Promotion: Define and control process for moving application through life cycle
“Freewheeling” and “application development” are two terms that should never appear together, but the reality is that they describe the way many Notes shops manage their business. The result is massive inefficiency, a rat’s nest of design versions, and errors that make it into production with embarrassing frequency.
Teamstudio CIAO! offers a solution. CIAO! provides developers and administrators with an integrated and ironclad system for managing changes to an application’s design, so that bad things don’t happen—but good things do. Plus, integration with Domino Designer for Eclipse (DDE) and context sensitive functionality make working with CIAO! a cinch.
“We never imagined it could be possible to simplify both our audit process and code revision. What we do in a matter of minutes today used to take us days of manual work!” - Rafael Nunes Armada, Petrobras systems analyst and developer

Check in, check out
For example, CIAO!’s check-in/check-out capability prevents developers from overwriting each other’s work. It also encourages developers to detail the changes they’ve made when they check the elements back in, creating a history that can prove invaluable when you’re trying to figure out who did what, when, and why. And if it becomes necessary to roll back to a previous version of a particular design element, CIAO! makes it easy.
CIAO! automates the versioning of designs to ensure your hard work is backed up and can be easily recovered. Never again spend hours trying to determine exactly which of those old copies is your most recent working version. Easily view a directory of old versions, compare these versions side-by-side using CIAO!’s built-in Delta functionality, and roll back with just one click!
Defined promotion process
Speed up your application deployment process by using CIAO!’s new promotion feature. CIAO! allows you to define your internal process for promoting versions of your database design from one stage to another and then automate this appropriately and easily as you use CIAO!’s make version step.
