Legacy Version Control Tools for Multi-Value Application Development
The legacy version control tools are specific to the multi-value programming controls BP libraries and DICT files on the PICK operating system environment. Checking out code from a BP Library is usually known as the locking process because files get locked by the developer for the time of their code change request. This leads to the sequencing of processing code change requests because the files that the developer intends to modify are locked and copied to the development stage.
Let’s use an example to well explain this concept. Let’s consider five staging levels, such as development, QA, UAT, pre-production, and production environments. The developer is required to move their code changes through these staging environments. The developer checks out the elements from the production BP library to the development BP library and begins to work on modifying the elements.
