The RAD Studio IDE collaboration and version control features will help you create better products faster, both as a lone developer, or as part of a team. Code Collaboration drives deeper code understanding, better testing and better products.
The RAD Studio IDE allows you to use several version control systems to keep track of the changes of your project. - Support for Subversion, Git and Mercurial repositories enable a range of common source code management tasks including, adding and updating projects and files and navigating history and revisions to locate differences.
Using the inbuilt difference viewer, or by linking in your own, it is easy to navigate changes and history using the history tab in the code viewer.
The default text comparison tool is powered by Beyond Compare allowing you to quickly locate differences with language aware highlighting including Object Pascal, C++, HTML and DFM
The RAD Studio IDE supports custom shortcuts that are ideal for linking to external resources (such as Jira or Confluence) using the Tools menu with a host or pre-defined parameters based on the project being work on.
For deeper integration to team systems, the Open Tools API allows developers to create custom IDE plugins and even re-sell those to others.
The RAD Studio IDE includes command line compilers that are ideal for integrating into continuous build configurations quickly using the MSBuild format. External tools such as Hudson and Jenkins, combined with integrated unit testing powered by DUnit and DUnitX provide a robust foundation for continuous integration.
