WSAD and VSS Compatibility

Hi All,
I'm using WSAD4.0.3 and CVS right now. Have any one connected VSS with WSAD4.0.3? or is there a VSS Compatible WSAD available for download. I downloaded a VSS plugin, but it says it'll work with Eclipse 2.0 only, and WSAD4.0.3 is not Eclipse 2.0 it seems, I read it as WSAD 5.0 is Eclipse 2.0 compatible.
Please help, this is a bit urgent as we are facing some issues with our version control and Release methods.
Thanks in Advance

No, as mentioned on the page referenced in that thread, that plugin is only for Eclipse 2.0, and thus WSAD 5.0. There is no plugin for VSS in WSAD 4.0. Thus my recommendation (which I still STRONGLY make) to use CVS instead.

Praveen, WSAD 5.0 is currently available for download only for Passport Advantage members. You can get more information on how to become one on IBM's website.
