Where is a source code file actually placed?

Scott Stanchfield

The source is stored in a database called "the repository". There are no files.

VisualAge for Java follows a paradigm similar to what Roedy Green refers to as "Source Code in Database" (SCID). You can read about this paradigm at http://mindprod.com/scid.html

If you want to use the code outside VisualAge, you export it to a directory, as .java and/or .class files.
