(1) There is no perspective that takes you into VisualAge to build Swing components. Currently you build Swing components by hand in code without a visual editor. A Swing editor will be part of the upcoming WSAD 5.0.
(3) The redbook "WebSphere Studio Application Developer Programming Guide" walks you through using CVS. The redbook and the WSAD documentation walks you through some of the CVS setup process -- but a lot of it (how to download, install, etc.) you are on your own for -- read the CVS FAQs on the internet. The redbook only covers CVSNT -- but I would recommend installing your CVS server on Unix (Linux) instead if you can manage it. Kyle
Kyle, We are in the process of selecting a commom IDE for all developers. One of the reasons to consider IBM VisualAge / WSAD(in near future)over the open soure IDEs, is the VCE to develop Swing Components with MVC wiring. Because we have to do our UI with JApplet. We may not able start with WSAD till IBM releases WSAD5 with Swing VCE. We can start with VisualAge4 with couple of licences to develop Swing componenets and we can migrate to WSAD5 when it is released. (And of course we can play with Eclipse to get a feel of WSAD). Do we get the Repository/Team Management Management server when we buy 2 or more license of VisualAge4.Could you give some insight on this.Should we have to buy the Repository server seperately? Thanks Alagan

Sri, I'd recommend that you contact your IBM sales rep, but I believe that when you buy even one copy of VAJ Enterprise (Note that you HAVE to buy Enterprise -- not Professional) you get the team server software -- it's all in the CD set. Kyle
