Model Source Control

Implementing source and version control for your host application model files is an important consideration in a large production environment. Host Integrator does not contain any source control features. To control your model source files you should use one of the available configuration management software packages like Microsoft's Visual SourceSafe. Each host application model contains a number of files that you need to keep together in order to ensure its uniqueness.

To implement source control for a model file, save the following files and preserve the following folder structure:

Required Files
Optional Files

Note: If you want to save the settings for this model so that it will be the basis for creating other models, select Save Settings As.... The .dtool file you create can include Design Tool-specific configuration information such as window size, colors, keymapping, and preferences, as well as information about the host application and connection settings.
