SVNCOM is a set of COM objects designed to provide subversion
functionality for purposes of automatization without direct usage of
sources or command line client. There are lot of reasons why usage of
source codes directly can be not convenient. The main is necessity to spend
much time for learning and requirement of specific knowledge (senior "C
language" skills). Usage of command line client also cause lot of problems
and the main are: problem with file names encoding and output parsing.
On Windows OS, COM binding will allow access to subversion almost from
any place: .NET code, native Win32 code, vbs scripts (standalone, VB for
applications, ASP etc). So you can use subversion in your programs and
automatizations scripts easy.
SVNCOM bindings available in two packages: MSI installer with "SDK" (few
vbs examples, svn help file and some api help) and MSM redistributive
package. The MSM package will allow easy integration with your own
installer. SVNCOM bindings can be freely redistributed, preserving both
subversion (tigris) and PushOk Software copyright rights. Both licenses
grant almost non limited usage in binary form. SVNCOM now is the part of
Pushok SVNSCC Proxy (SCC API integration plug-in). This mostly means that
binding have the commercial quality and will be maintained in the future.
But in the same time SVNCOM project is an open source project and any
contribution (including money donations) are welcome.
