Issue in VSS and Eclipse with IDE Integration


We are facing an issue after integrating VSS and Eclipse with IDE. When two different users check out a file(S-Control, Trigger…) from VSS to Eclipse working folder and after performing the changes try to check-in the file back from Eclipse working folder to VSS the eclipse gets hanged and the file doesn’t get  checked-in.


Problem Description


Suppose there are two users- User A and User B.

These two users try to update two different files say - User A Check Outs Trigger A  and User B check out Trigger B ,which are both under a common folder called unpackaged in VSS to their corresponding working folder in Eclipse.


There is package.xml file for each related folder in VSS. This file also gets checked out whenever we check out any file under the folder. It will be checked out in any user name depending on who-ever checked out a file first from VSS.


Now when both the user try checking in the Trigger A and Trigger B file back from Eclipse working folder to VSS the eclipse gets hanged and doesn’t allow to check-in because of this package.xml file being checked out.


The users have to close all applications and then do changes  one by one to solve this problem.


Is there any way that this problem can be avoided?Any pointers will be reaally helpful.
