AccuRev Review: "Great solution, poor implementation"

It is used for version control across several projects in my organization.
  • Creation of streams & workspaces are easy.
  • Easy integration with other bug tracking or tasking tools like JIRA.
  • File comparison and history is possible.
  • Project creation and setup is easy.
  • Very hard or confusing process when compared to other version control tools like TFS /Git etc.
  • More features would be definitely helpful. The UI seems a little outdated when compared to many modern tools
  • Very slow tool.
Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.

This is one of the best version control tools I have used.

User Review: "Accurev makes code merging a breeze!"

AccuRev has a unique way of showing different branches of code. I like the way code can be promoted with a drag and drop. It is great for projects with many developers were code merges can't be avoided.
  • Visual code stream view.
  • Eclipse plugin.
  • Integrated merge tool.
  • Free online training.
  • Check for new versions and auto update.
I like it for complicated merging. Since many competing tools are free I think the project needs to be medium to large and have 5+ developers to justify the cost.

Are you familiar with the Command Line? If so Git may be a better alternative.
