When we are developing a software with the collaboration of several members we need a way of sharing the code files, software versioning and revision control. We can use a Subversion system for this. SVN is one. See more information about svn here.

We can get a free host to host our files. Assembla is one which gives free services as well as paid ones.

So now we need a client software  to work with an SVN. One popular software is TortoiseSVN. It’s a great software that can be used very easily.

If you are using Eclipse as your development IDE it is easy to work with an SVN. We need to install Subversion to the eclipse IDE.

Let’s get it installed.
