[Subclipse-users] Atomic commit with multiple projects

From: Andreas Krüger <Andreas.Krueger_at_eplus.de>
Date: 2006-05-30 09:41:01 CEST

A commit involving files from several Eclipse Projects, to the same SVN
repository, is split up by Subclipse into several individual commits, one
for each project.

So what should be a single commit enters the repository in a non-atomic

This is not nice. After all, "atomic commit" is one of the Good Things we
SVN users are proud of.

In our particular setup in this project, we have a "common / server /
client" - splitup of our code, and will port the whole thing from CVS to
SVN some time next month or so. I would love to be able to add "atomicity"
to my internal "subclipse advertising campaign" ;-) .

This issue had been discussed in a thread "Atomic commit with multiple
projects" back in October 2004. (If you send an email to
users-get.1430_1445@subclipse.tigris.org , that will give you those old
messages, plus a few unrelated others.)

The workaround promoted at that time: For the commit, do not use Subclipse,
but use Tortoise or another external SVN client. For this workaround to
work, it may be neccessary to have checked out a common root directory
(such as "trunc"), containing all the individual Eclipse projects.

Anyway, the discussion back in 2004 ended with Céderic's remark and

> No, I think this is possible if the projects are from the same
> Can someone add an issue ?

I don't think anybody did add that issue.

I volunteer. If I read nothing convincing to the contrary, I will add that
issue, some time next month (next week, if I get around to it).



P.S.: I have tried to post an earlier version of this message to
 , to keep the thread. But that has not worked. At least, I cannot find my
own message in the mailing list archive. On the other hand, I received no
problem notification from the mailing list software. Something did not work
as expected. - So, if the earlier version did get through and this does
produce a dupe, please excuse.
