Controlling Dev/Test/Live scenario in CVS

This may be an obvious question, so bear with me on this because I am very new to CVS and how it can be used.

Our current situation is we have an RPG source on an iSeries server controlled by Turnover so we can control what items are in Dev, Test and Prod etc. we can control what is promoted when and it's easy to cut off at a particular point to do a build.

We also have a Java front end that we use CVS for, now we only use HEAD while developing and when we do a build of a new version we tag with that build number.

Here in lies the problem, the developers promote to HEAD all day without the changes being tested but when we do a build we have to build from HEAD and there may be some changes made in HEAD that have not been tested and promoted in Turnover. So now we have to promote things in Turnover that may not have been tested, just to match the client software so we have a stable product (in theory!!).

How can CVS allow us to control the Java source in the same way as Turnover does on the iSeries?

Thanks, Andrew.
