Do u storing the java project in a folder named "cvs"

Well I guess most java developers use cvs system for their source code
versioning. Do u create a folder called "cvs" and store your project right
under the cvs directory?

For example, suppose your project name is JavaWallet, would this be your
project structure on your local machine....
/cvs/JavaWallet/
/cvs/JavaWallet/build.xml
/cvs/JavaWallet/readme.txt
/cvs/JavaWallet/licence.txt
/cvs/JavaWallet/src/
/cvs/JavaWallet/bin/
/cvs/JavaWallet/docs/
/cvs/JavaWallet/...............

I know there is no "hard and fast" rule of where u store your java project,
but I want to know what sort of folder structure is normally followed.
Please let me know what sort of folder struture u follow, and whether u
store your project right under a folder called "cvs"

Thanks

Well I don't create a CVS folder, I put most things under ./code - then
cvs co into that folder:

/home/mark/code/someclient/someproject

Although on my current project I'm playing with Perforce, which is nice,
however the plugin doesn't seem to work (under Linux).

I'm working on a project which has multiple concurrent branches in CVS.
So my directory structure looks like this:

D:\dev (my development directory)
performasure (the project I'm working on)
zeno (a branch of that project in CVS)
src (this is the actual module I checked out of CVS)
build.xml
java
...

If I were to apply this to your project:

/home/suzy/dev
javawallet
head
JavaWallet
build.xml
src
...

I would never use a directory called "cvs" because cvs itself uses a
directory called "CVS" in your working directory to store information
about which repository/etc. There's too much chance for confusion if you
also use a directory called "cvs".
