Hello Rizwan,

RS> Is IntelliJ SCCI Compliant?

If by "SCCI" you mean the Source Code Control Interface (the standard API
for integrating with version control providers) - no, IDEA is not compatible
with it. SCCI is a very much Windows-specific API, and hard to integrate
with a Java application.

This is a bit confusing to me. You say SCCI is 'Windows-specific', but isn't VSS also windows-specific? Yet IntelliJ has support for VSS. I would assume that by implementing an SCCI plugin, you could tackle any SCCI-compliant SCC's, including the new version of VSS (which I'm assuming you'll support).

We're being force-fed Aldon for SCC, and it is SCCI compliant. It would seem to me that any chance to use anything resembling an app-independent specification would be a good thing.

Our VSS integration does not use any APIs provided by VSS - it simply runs
the command line VSS client.

We don't currently have any specific plans to support the new version of
VSS. It will be supported automatically if Microsoft provides a compatible
command-line client (which seems quite likely to me).
