How can I use CVS to check out the petstore project code from the code repository?
The recommended way to get the source code is to just download the petstore. Another way, which is for people who want a more raw view of the petstore code, is to check out the code from the public code repository. All the development of the BluePrints projects is done publicly on java.net. You can check out the source code of a project such as petstore using any cvs client, and the username “guest” and just hit return when prompted for the password, then just do a cvs checkout petstore. The cvs repository is public and can be checked out by anyone. For example, you can just first login with the guest name with “cvs -d :pserver: guest@yourcvsserver:/cvs login” and just hit return when prompted for password. Then, do a “cvs -d :pserver: guest@yourcvsserver:/cvs checkout petstore”.
