    Re: Enterprise Team Development


    hi, manny,

    I have been leading and managing various development teams over the past
    5 years, and have found that it is far easier to maintain 2 sets of sql/IIs
    and mts one for development and the second for testing, this has many befits,
    but requires that you must take care with backups of the servers and also
    allocating specific workspac/temporay work areas for your developers, this
    is most important with the SQL and MTS components.

    For example I am currently in charge of a full rewrite of a large warehouse
    system for a client and the client only has the resource for a production
    server and ONE development server, on this server we have MTS, IIs and SQL
    server 6.5, I have divided the SQl database and DSN's into the following
    main areas, production, pre-productioon & testing, development, and finally
    backup for all of the preceeding, we make a backup of the development system
    2 times a day, the testing platform we restore to a defined test data set,
    and then creating a backup after running some tests for comparative analysis,
    and once a day minimum for the production server,

    should you require further info, or thoughts please mail me.

    Have the developers use common servers. You should have a development/test
    servers separate from production servers.

    Many things can only be properly tested/developed using a separate server.
    Things definitely don't work the same local vs. remote (e.g., security, client/server
    latency, avoidance of callbacks, etc).
