Source Code Control System
The only source code control system specifically for IBM Notes and Domino
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.
Promotion: define and control process for moving application through lifecycle
Speed up your application deployment process using CIAO!’s 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.
Version control: store, compare, and restore previous versions of design elements
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 production 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!
Check-in/check-out: prevents save conflicts, creates detailed change history
CIAO!’s check-in/check-out capability prevents developers from overwriting each other’s work. It also encourages developers to document the changes they’ve made using a configurable comment field. This can prove to be 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.
