RE: RE: RE: Checking out projects multiple times, problems importing a large project

Eclipse probably cheats with cvs. When you say "check out as...", it
can lookup the .project file in the repository, as it knows what to do.
With svn, it's obviously not looking for / finding it, and so has to ask
before it checks out the whole tree.


However, it is possible that subversion does not supply information
asked by eclipse. Still, it's not so hard to say that it's a java
project, especially when it's not your first check out for the project.
You're only doing this because "one's not enough".


The other consideration is that this could be nicer - you are not able
to change a project once it's be checked out (I don't know why you'd
want that though).

But why ask what type of project? I'm not going to change the type of
project...but with Subclipse I'll have to remember it.


I've got novices entering my projects every day, and it would be much
clearer if it checked it out as the same type of project in both cases.
Do I really want to check out a Java project as something else?

Well, I tried this for the first time on Saturday, and it worked
perfectly. Sure, it asked me what type of project, but it found the
.project and .classpath files and organized the project as it should.


I'm on Eclipse 3.1M5 I think.

Issue 1:


I fully appreciate the ability of Subclipse to check out projects into
an appropriate dir/project within Eclipse based on the .project files (I
assume this is how it works). However, I very often need to check out
the same project multiple times within a given workspace (for branch
management or temporarily working on a branch, for example). It seems
that the "Check out as..." functionality does not do what I would
expect...where the CVS module allows me to check out the same module
with a different name (and no prompting to specify what type of project,
etc) the Subclipse module requires me to specify it as a Java project,
set build paths, etc.


The intelligence to automatically check out /myproject/trunk and
/myproject/branch1 both as "myproject" without further intervention is
very cool...but it seems an additional option is needed for me to
specify a project name. Is this possible in the current code?


Issue 2:


I have had some trouble with Subclipse importing projects. Yesterday,
the first operation I tried with Subclipse was to import a large project
(4000+ files) into Subversion. After initially giving me an error, my
second attempt caused the Eclipse java process to just chug and chug and
chug at 100% CPU. The same CPU metric on the server was nominal. An
import using command-line CVS did not have any problems, and imported
all 4000 files fairly quickly.


I am running the most recent subclipse with JavaSVN under Eclipse 3.0
and subversion 1.1-ish on Gentoo Linux. I have been evaluating
Subversion as a possible successor to CVS at our organization, but
things like this prevent us from adopting it. We really must have
seamless Eclipse integration on par with the built-in CVS module, or
it's a no-go.
