Graham,

I don't know about NetBeans "global local repository", but it seems you are confusing the two different product's use of the word 'repository'.

Let's see, I'll bet NetBeans simply means the local folder where you keep all your working files in one place. This would actually translate to 'working copy' for Subversion. So you would need to put your local working copy into NetBeans global local repository in order for NetBeans to pick up those files.

A lot of guesswork, but hope it helps.

Dale

Subject: Local repository

I am moving from VSS to Subversion and have some queries. I'm reading
through the Subversion book (currently chapter 3), but I am getting a
little impatient so I have decided to post here.

The book keeps referring to a local repository. However is this a
repository like on the server or is this the actual project directory?

For instance: The remote store has three projects stored in it, ProjA,
ProjB and ProjC. Now I am working on ProjA which is java web app, so I
have a copy in d:\Develop\localhost\ProjA while ProjB and ProjC are
client and server java apps so they are in d:\Develop\java\Proj(B/C).

Now from what the book seems to suggest is that the local repository is
latest copy of the project. However the IDE (NetBeans) seems to want a
global local repository (that is one that is constant for all projects).

Which is it? Do I create a seperate directory "d:\SVN" and have the
projects I am working on copied there or do I have to remember to change
my local repository every time I checkout a project?

I'm confused. With VSS you simply pointed to a directory and away you
went. Very intuitive. Currently I have two conflicting models in my
head: Is the local repository my project directory or not? If so, how
does trunk etc. work when my ProjA directory has 6 subdirectories off
it's root?

Thanks, Graham.
