    Where can I get a Mercurial (CVS) repository

    I have the application and want to use the integration that netbeans has, but I need a place to upload it to. Where would I get one of those?

    Google for "CVS host".

    Mercurial is a different version control system than CVS, so you need to know which you want to use.

    Mercurial, you can create your own repository on your local machine, either from scratch, or by duplicating from another mercurial repository with "hg clone http:..."

    I'd go for SVN though.

    But it's possibly not your choice - as in, if you need to work with a main repo using one type of version control, it's often MUCH easier if you use the same version control. I've used mercurial, and it's good in my opinion.

    I tried it locally but I think it saved it the repo on the same directory as the project so I don't have diffs, and can't undo it -_-. I want to try and set it up so my group can easily access it, but we don't have a lot of time to do it so I think we'll just swap files.

    And which of the discussed version control systems are you using?

    So, can others see your repo? Or are you just trying it out locally? Why not do "hg add somefile.txt; hg commit", then update "somefile.txt" to a different content "hg diff somefile.txt" and/or "hg update somefile.txt; hg commit" to update it. Then "hg history" or "hg export".

    No no, I'm not using the command line, I'm using the one built into netbeans, I have the exe which it uses, but it's all through the IDE. I was just looking for hosting so I wouldn't have to use my local drive.

    But perhaps it makes sense to use it command line first, to make sure that it works - when you do things in an IDE, you can't always see what ACTUALLY happens....
