Caching for Working Directories

SCM-Manager offers commands to modify repositories on the server side. For example this is used by the Editor Plugin and the Review Plugin. Without further configuration, this is done by cloning/checking out the repository temporarily, performing the change, creating a commit and pushing the changes back to the central repository. The larger the repositories, the longer this may take.

To speed up such changes a lot, SCM-Manager offers a strategy where the local clones will be cached and reused for subsequent requests. This strategy caches up to a configurable amount of clones (but at most one per repository). To enable this strategy, add the system property scm.workingCopyPoolStrategy to the value

The maximum capacity of the cache can be set using the property scm.workingCopyPoolSize (the default is 5).
