Best Practices: Source Control for iWay Channels
I would like know the best practices avaliable for implementing source control in iWay Channel development. What are the various source control softwares are compatible for iWay development. Does iWay supports Microsofts TFS(Team Foundation Sever) as source control tool?

Source Control [of all configurable objects] is possible with iWay Integration Tool [iIT]. SVN is commonly used, although TFS would be a good try. If TFS has an eclipse plug-in, I would imagine that to work as well.

Srii,

Thanks for your quick response on this! We are trying to implement "Merging & Branching" of iWay configurable artifacts within SVN or TFS. Since SVN is commonly used plugin for iWay, I would like to know if we have any best practices on how to perform "Merging & Branching" for iWay items using SVN.

Are we refering to process flows in iWay Service Manager? If so, what is Merging & Branching in iSM? I am sorry but if it is about flows in iWay Data Migrator, I am not the expert yet.

I am referring to Merging & Branching of any configurable items(eg. Channels/PFlow/Schemas etc.,) in SVN to implement source control using iIT.
