TestComplete provides integrated source control services. This means that you can use TestComplete as a client for your source control provider. Without leaving TestComplete, you can work with your TestComplete projects or project suites that are stored in source control systems: get the latest versions, compare, submit your changes, and so forth.

TestComplete supports two ways of integration with source control systems:

  • Integration with Subversion, Git, Team Foundation Version Control and Mercurial is implemented via special plugins. This is the preferred way to work with these source control systems.
  • Integration with other source control systems is implemented via "universal" SCC API Providers Plugin. It works with any system that is compatible with Microsoft Source Code Control API. This type of integration appeared in earlier versions of TestComplete and is not recommended.

The following topics provide more information on source control systems support provided by TestComplete.
