Integrating with Other Apps

Integrating DeltaWalker with other apps is done via command line interface.

Macromedia Dreamweaver

Macromedia Dreamweaver supports external file comparison tools and documents the integration steps in its help—just type "diff tool" in the help search field and the associated topic should come up. In a nutshell, these are the steps:

Mac OS X

Open the Preferences dialog box by selecting Dreamweaver > Preferences, then select the File Compare category. Using the required syntax manually enter the full path to the DeltaWalker executable located inside the DeltaWalker application bundle e.g.:

Macintosh HD:Applications:DeltaWalker.app:Contents:MacOS:DeltaWalker

Windows

Open the Preferences dialog box by selecting Edit > Preferences, then select the File Compare category. Click the Browse button, navigate to the DeltaWalker installation folder, then select the DeltaWalker executable e.g.:

C:\Program Files\Deltopia\DeltaWalker 2.0\DeltaWalker.exe

Mac OS X

Diff Command:

/Applications/DeltaWalker.app/Contents/MacOS/Deltawalker

Arguments:

"$REMOTE" "$LOCAL" -mi -pwd="`pwd`"

Merge Command:

/Applications/DeltaWalker.app/Contents/MacOS/Deltawalker

Arguments:

"$LOCAL" "$REMOTE" "$BASE" -merged="$MERGED" -mi -pwd="`pwd`" 

Visual Studio

Windows

User Tools setup

Compare Command:

C:\Program Files\Deltopia\DeltaWalker\DeltaWalker.exe

Compare Arguments:

-mi –nosplash %1 %2

Merge Command:

C:\Program Files\Deltopia\DeltaWalker\DeltaWalker.exe

Please note that the Team Foundation Server can be picky about the return code of the merge tool it's configured with. A workaround for this is to use a batch file to launch DeltaWalker instead of launching it directly:

C:\Program Files\Deltopia\DeltaWalker\dw-vs.bat

 

Merge Arguments:

-mi -nosplash %1 %2 %3 -merged=%4 -title1=%6 -title2=%7 -title0=%8

StarTeam

Go to Tools > Personal Options... In the Options dialog select the File tab then locate the Alternate Applications button near the bottom left corner. In the Alternate Applications dialog check the Comparison Utility checkbox, if not checked, then either type the path to the DeltaWalker executable or use the browse (...) button to bring up the Select File dialog select it. In the Options text field immediately below supply the following options:

-nosplash $file1 $file2

Concurrent Versions System, Windows Client (WinCVS)

Open the WinCVS preferences—in ver. 2.0.2 go to Admin > Preferences... then select the WinCVS tab. In the Programs group box, check the External diff option, then either type the path to the DeltaWalker executable or use the browse button to bring up the Select File dialog and navigate to it. If you have installed DeltaWalker using the MSI installer accepting all defaults, the path to DeltaWalker.exe should be:

C:\Program Files\Deltopia\DeltaWalker 2.0\DeltaWalker.exe
