Of late am getting stung with a glucose 'ed question...Yes it was the engine that dragged me to rejuvenate...!!


"Spell out the Basic Elements of Configuration Management ??"


Initially, it wasn't influencing me to give a thought process. But later, it did.

When i tried to dig into this question , a few were gushing out. They are

                                            (Click the Image for clear view)

- Version Control : A systematic process over tools to track the changes to a file / project / any configuration identification

Version Control Tools :
i) ClearCase
ii) Subversion
iii) TFS
iv) CVS etc...

- Build : Combining the sources into a usable artifact.

Build Tools : 
i) Make
ii) ANT
iii) MS Build etc

 - Release : Providing the usable artifact by a defined process

- Deployment : Installing / injecting the artifacts into a system or application.

The above written are very few tools that are used in real world....just wiped off a drop from the ocean of Configuration Management.

**Build tools and Build Management tools are two different entities and so as the others, which am not going pitch in at this point of time. My next posts will have a bouquet of Build Management , Release Management and Deployment Management process etc.**
