Source Safe Web Interface v2.0 Released

SSWI is a web based addon to Visual Source Safe that allows you to use all of the common source safe features from your favourite web browser.

SSWI also integrates with Visual Studio to enable remote access to your corporate VSS database from anywhere in the world as if you were still in the office.

It provides remote access to all the features of Visual Source Safe without the need to install software on the end user PC. SSWI is a fully web based system, that will work on any PC or MAC (OSX) with IE6+, Firefox or Safari and the Java runtime

  • Fast: Using Source Safe Web Interface can be up to 12 times faster than using VSS over a VPN or wide area network.
  • Secure: All data is encrypted so you can be sure your code is secure.
  • User Friendly: The SSWI user interface is almost identical to the actual SourceSafe client, which means your users will have no problem migrating to SSWI.
  • Cross Platform: SSWI is designed to work on Windows, Mac (OSX) and Linux.
  • Easy to Install: SSWI is packaged in a single installer and includes a Server Manager application that enables you to quickly install and configure SSWI, without the pain of configuration files and database access.
  • Minimal Client Side Requirements: SSWI is a browser based application that requires only a modern browser and the Java runtime. In most cases you will find that the end user machine already contains these prerequisites.
  • IDE Integration: Using the SSWI IDE integration you can access remote VSS databases from Visual Studio 6, 2002, 2003, 2005 and any other IDE that supports the MSSCCI interface (including Delphi 2005).
  • Cross Browser: SSWI supports Internet Explorer 6+, Firefox 1+ and Safari (Mac OSX).
  • Developers API: Using the SSWI developer API you can build source safe operations into any application or process simply by calling an XML web service.
