Installing Source Code Management and HTTP Proxy Settings
TopBraid Composer can be used with Subversion (SVN) for version control of text-based projects. Composer supports the Subversive plug-in for Eclipse. For licensing reasons, parts of the subversion system are not included in Composer installations. To complete SVN installation, a plug-in must be downloaded and installed in TopBraid Composer. See instructions at Installing Source Code Management and HTTP Proxy Settings.
TopBraid Composer can be used with Git for version control of text-based projects. Composer supports the Git Teamwork plug-in for Eclipse. Git is not included in Composer installations by default. To install Git, a plug-in must be downloaded and installed in TopBraid Composer. See instructions at How do I install the Git collaboration tool into TopBraid Composer?.
