RE: subclipse and externals

Hi Ian,
Thanks so much for the quick reply! I am using eclipse 3.0.2, subclipse
0.9.32, and subversion 1.2.1. I did just recently upgrade eclipse from
1.1.4. I am using apache 2.0.54 and put two new svn modules into its area
after the upgrade. Maybe I didn't upgrade everything.

It's good to know, though, that it should work! Until I can get it to
work, I guess we'll have to create the alternative structures by creating
the extra dirs in the externals area of our rep.

Thanks again!

RE: subclipse and externals

Hi Rebecca,
Which version of Subclipse are you using? I submitted a patch to
Subclipse a while ago about this problem (which affects us too). I can't
remember if I see it in 0.9.32 (which was released after the patch), and
I'm afraid I can't check just ATM because I don't have access at present,
but if you're on an earlier version it's well worth upgrading. Note you
will need to upgrade your svn clients to 1.2.1 to work with 0.9.32.

Subject: subclipse and externals

Hi Ian,
Saw a post you did on haax and have a question for you, if you have a

We will be converting to subversion shortly. My question is regarding
eclipse and using externals in subversion. With other clients, defining
an external has had no impact on checking in. But if we have a
multi-directory path in the external definition, we have a problem.

The file used to set the svn:externals property for 'racm':



It appears to be necessary to place the directories with the package path
in the defn (i.e. "com/dstsytems/concorde/business...."). If we didn't do
that, then the classpath would be messed up because the valueObject and
publicAPI directories do not go under the racm directory. Is that
clear? So when we do it this way, everything checks out nicely in the
correct directory relationships, so that we can build our individual
components. Problem is with Eclipse. Now I am not a developer and
really know very little about eclipse, but from my experiments, I've found
that Eclipse does not allow those extra dirs in the externals defn. It
says that all the dirs in front of racm are not versioned, so no version
control operations that update can be performed on racm. With
TortoiseSVN and command line, no problem! Would you happen to know a way
to tell eclipse to accept these 'extra' directories?

Thanks for any help!
