AccuRev SCM

What do you like best?

Works on multiple platforms, Windows, Linux, CentOS. Users can have workspaces on several development machines at the same time. Non-changeable, immutable data store, perfect for compliance requirements ISO and similar.

What do you dislike?

Perl script for changes to system parameters. If you do not have an in-house Perl Script staff member, it is a real process to work with AccuRev to make simple changes in the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For best functionality be sure to have a Perl script team member on-staff. Train users well at inception for best results. Be sure to layout stream paths and names in advance, this is by nature a non-changeable system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Software change management, excellent for keeping version control up to date, easy to use interface for many different developers. Fairly easy to move workspaces from one machine to another, which is helpful for developers that frequently upgrade machines/equipment (testing and development environments).

iOS of Revision Control

What do you like best?

The ease of using Accurev. I have used SVN and Accurev and feel that for most of the tasks Accurev is simple to use without much learning curve. Espicially for revision control going between version and updating the work space, Merging code is very simple on Accurev.

One of the most convenient features of Accurev is creating new branches from a main branch.

The other feature, I like the most is the visual representation of all the code branches showing where each branch has originated from. This gives a very good idea of relationship between different branches.

What do you dislike?

Just iOS (of smartphones), the 'not so commonly used' operations are difficult to access. For example, Blame of SVN (that shows revision number and author of each line) is done better than that in Accurev.

While browsing all the branches and searching for branches, I feel that Accurev is littler slower. This is not to say its competition SVN is faster. I just feel that Accurev could step up the game by speeding up browsing different code branches.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ease of use = Accurev. Don't think twice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Accurev for Revision control of Firmware. Maintaining the code and populating multiple branches was made very easy by Accurev. Also, building the code on different branches each with its own specific requirements is way easier.

Also, bringing up new hires to use Accurev takes very small learning curve. Enabling us to train and bring new hires up to speed very quickly.

AccuRev is hard to learn at first and can be slow, but does version control well

What do you like best?

It works well enough for version control to store old versions, review differences between versions, and promote files when they're ready for the next level.

The command line interface is powerful and makes it easy to script and automate tasks.

What do you dislike?

It's different from other version control systems with different terminologies, so there is a steep learning curve for new users.

It's fairly slow to do a lot of things, sometimes several minutes. When I am updating a workspace I usually switch to another program and switch back later so I don't have to wait.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it before you buy it. If users are used to different version control systems, factor in time and resources for training.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking source code changes over time at different levels with developers' comments and the capability to revert to old versions when needed.

Good Code Repository

What do you like best?

Accurev does a great job and keeping track of changes, allowing you to keep, and revert easily. Overall, just an easy way to track changes, and maintain versions of your business code.

What do you dislike?

I really do not like the interface, maybe that is the best that can be done, but it seems clunky, and often the wording on the options is confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would look at free or less expensive solution like Git, but if you want a full featured tool that allows you to write your own plugins, then accurev is a pretty good choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a code repository that allowed you to write your own plugins. We found that in accurev. The main benefit is just keeping track of allow the changes taking place with our small development team.
