RE: Issues with 0.9.33

Hello Eugene,
JavaSVN uses JSCH library - same as used in Eclipse CVS support. Regarding
SSH configuration (with key or password authentication) - JavaSVN uses
Subversion configuration file to fetch key and other information and it
works well for most of the users as far as I understand. Of course there may
be bugs, that eventually will be fixed.
System properties are left for compatibility with the previous versions of
JavaSVN that didn't support Subversion configuration file. And making SSH
configuration in Subclipse the same as for Eclipse CVS plugin is up to
Subclipse (I'm not part of Subclipse team), I could provide Mark with all
necessary information and help if needed.
Including JavaSVN in Subclipse is already a big step forward from what it
was before. So it is natural for next versions of Subclipse to make SSH
configuration simplier using JavaSVN-specific API.
Alexander Kitaev.


  Don't you think it would make sense to cooperate with Eclipse CVS team and
reuse their work for ssh support? The current ssh keys configuration for
JavaSVN is really pathetic.

Hello Roberto,

Thanks for detailed description of the problem.


eclipse -vmargs -Djavasvn.ssh2.key=/home/sanchezr/.ssh/id_dsa

As you're using system properties, try commenting out "ssh = ssh ..." line

in Subversion config file, that you may find at ~/.subversion/config, also

please delete ~/.subversion/auth/svn.ssh directory that may contain wrong

cached credentials and try to access your repository with key auth again.

I think there could be bug that reveals itself when both configuration file

and system properties are used to define credentials. I will investigate

this problem next week.

Forget the command line adapter, there are too many parts not

implemented. I would focus on JavaSVN and getting it to


work with your


SSH setup. Tell us what you are trying to do and what you


are seeing.


The other option is to use JavaHL. Whether you are using JavaHL or

the CLI, you *must* have the 1.2.x version of the


libraries. I would


suggest either 1.2.0 or 1.2.3. Our FAQ points to a site that had

Debian packages available.


OK. It sounds like JavaSVN is the best way to go.


In general, it shouldn't matter if your server is running 1.1.4.


OK. I thought I would just include as much detail as possible.


So stick with 0.9.33 and either lets get JavaSVN working or


make sure


you have a correct JavaHL installed.


OK. I started by upgrading 0.9.30 to 0.9.33 using the

Eclipse update manger. I then restarted eclipse and went

into Preferences -> Team -> SVN and set it to JavaSVN. I

restarted eclipse with this command line:

eclipse -vmargs -Djavasvn.ssh2.key=/home/sanchezr/.ssh/id_dsa

\ -Djavasvn.ssh2.username=roberto

I then went into the SVN Repository Exploring Perspective. I

went into the add repository dialog and specified the

repository, including my username and @ before the hostname.

I left the passwork field blank and received "svn:

Authentication cancelled" for an error in the console. The

dialog that popped up said: 'Error validating location:

"org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn:

Authentication cancelled"'. It asked me if I wanted to keep

the location. I said no and was returned to the add

repository dialog. The server also showed that the ssh

authentication was password and not key authentication, even

though I passed in the location of my key on the command line.

I then entered my password and was able to add the

repository. I found an Eclipse Java project to checkout and

selected "Checkout As Project" on the trunk folder of that

project. When I switched to the Java perspective, the

project was build and I was able to run it.

I guess the problem with not being able to access the

resources has to do with using the command line driver. That

being the case, I would like to get JavaSVN working, but I

need key authentication for some of my projects, as that

particular sever does not allow password authentication.

Thanks for the quick response and hopefully we can get this

working. I am especially interested to know why my

specification of the key file is not honored by Subclipse. I

think that may be the source of the problem.
