About this book

This book eases the transition from other version control systems. Aimed toward readers who want and need a crash-course in using Subversion, this informative reference begins with a quick-start introduction, then moves on to advanced topics such as repository administration, Apache integration, third-party tools, migrating revision history, and accessing the Subversion APIs from other programs.

In addition, author Garrett Rooney, a Subversion developer, covers advanced topics not documented in other books. Rooney clearly explains how to integrate Subversion with common development tools and illustrates how to embed Subversion within your own programs. Multiple appendices compare SVN to other version control systems and offer alternative client applications.

About the authors

Garrett Rooney is a software engineer on the version control team at CollabNet, where he works full time on Subversion and other related technologies. Rooney attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, where he managed to complete three years towards a mechanical engineering degree before coming to his senses and realizing he wanted to get a job where someone would pay him to play with computers. Since then, Rooney completed a computer science degree at RPI and has spent far too much time working on a wide variety of open source projects, most notably Subversion. He's also a member of the Apache Software Foundation, where he works on the Apache Portable Runtime and the Apache HTTP Server, as well as helps to maintain the ASF Subversion repository.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"Subversion is one of the hottest tools to appear recently in configuration management … . The book is well organized and easy to consume, particularly for the software practitioner with no prior Subversion knowledge. … There are definite bright spots in this book, particularly for the Subversion novice, who probably should keep a copy close at hand as an excellent reference. The book has also made me look forward to new developments that address the limitations in Subversion itself … ." (Marc S. Gibian, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2008)
