hi all,

am working with developing an interface like MICROSOFT-VSS with 'CheckIn' and 'CheckOut' buttons..

for CheckIn i am selecting a file from local machine to place it in a 'Shared location'.. In real VSS the given file is being stored in some other format and in some unknown folder like 'a to z' of the Shared location.

here i got stuck..

can anyone help me in this VSS database...

thank you..

I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to do, but if you want to study how to access VSS from within Java code, have a look at the source code of Ant. It has a VSS task that does this.
I agree. Here's the link:
