Multiple Answer, Multiple Choice


You are a project manager in a software development company. The software development team intends to develop feature sets independently from the main source code. The team will need to branch from the main source tree and merge the branches back in.


Which tools can you use to manage branches? (Choose two. Each answer is a complete solution.)



  1. Team Explorer
  2. Solution Explorer
  3. tf command-line tool
  4. Windows Explorer
  5. Source Control Explorer

Answer:
C. tf command-line tool
E. Source Control Explorer


Tutorial:
You can use either use the tf command-line tool or the Source Control Explorer tool to manage the branches. The tf command-line tool includes three main commands, branch, branches, and delete that can be used to manage branches.


The branch command is typically used to create a branch using the following command-line syntax:


tf branch FileName BranchName


The branches command is used to display the history of a branch for a specified file using the following command-line syntax:


tf branches filename


The delete command is used to delete a branch using the following command-line syntax:


tf delete BranchName


You can also create, manage, and delete branches by using the Source Control Explorer tool. The Source Control Explorer is also used to view and manage team projects, folders, and files that are included in Team Foundation source control.


You cannot use Team Explorer to manage the branches. Team Explorer is typically used as an interface to access and manage team projects stored in the Team Foundation Server. You can launch the Source Control Explorer from the Team Explorer


You should not use the Solution Explorer to manage the branches. Solution Explorer typically allows you to view items and to perform item management tasks in a project. Solution Explorer supports various management commands such as copy, move, link, and other management commands used to manage items.


You should not use Windows Explorer to manage the branches. Windows Explorer is used to display the files and folders stored in a computer running Windows operating systems such as Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
