Working with Version Control
/documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Web Component Controls/Working with Version Control.xml
It easy to integrate your Alpha Anywhere coding with external version control systems. Most version control systems depend on storing the small differences between successive versions of text files for efficient storage. Most Alpha Anywhere artifacts are normally stored in a binary database or a binary file for efficient loading and saving. This has historically presented an "impedance mismatch" between Alpha Anywhere code and version control systems. To address this, we have introduced the option to keep a project's code in an external file system.
