VCM implements the publishing, finding, and reuse of components by maintaining information about
them in one or more repository databases.
Because VCM enables you to use more than one repository database, you can separate groups of
components into different repository databases based on component functionality.
VCM also supports repository databases in MS Access format or in SQL Server
format. You could use MS Access for local repository databases and SQL Server
for repository databases residing on a server. VCM therefore offers a scalable
solution to component management.
