I've been using CVS with Eclipse for years now and I need to make the
transition to eclipse for an important new project I am urgently
Unfortunately, I am not getting much gratification with information
for subclipse. Surely I don't have to read the entire book on SVN just
to get up and running in a day (given I already have experience with
I followed all the instructions and opted to use the setup.exe version
of eclipse to deploy to my Windows XP development machine (where
exlipse is also installed). I then followed the instructions to have
subclipse installed into eclipse.
All versions are the latest stable versions at the time of writing.
I followed the instructions in chapter 1 (A quick start) and created a
I even ran the following google search to try and find info for subclipse
Alas, I still am at a loss to work out how I am supposed to access
this new repository (created from "A Quick Start") using subclipse. My
repository is located at f:\SVN_repos, but when I put this into the
URL field, I get an error. OK so I managed to work out that I have to
go through the seemingly unnecessary overhead of setting some network
layer up to communicate with my local repository (booooh)
And as expected, this was gonna require a whole other layer of grief
too. Apparently the collabnet install routine I ran handily added the
following lines to
LoadModule dav_svn_module "c:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/mod_dav_svn.so"
LoadModule authz_svn_module "c:/Program Files/Subversion/bin/mod_authz_svn.so"
Which is all great, but then apache reports them as syntax errors and
refuses to start. the syntax errors go away when I comment the lines
out. According to the panacea that is Google, I am the only persion on
the Internet to ever publish the string "Syntax error on line 175 of
C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/conf/httpd.conf" (with
everything from 175 truncated) I can't figure this out, and I really
don't want to have to. Please tell me I don't have to :(
Surely subclipse can just use the local repository?
I READ THE ENTIRE FAQ at
And it was no use at all other than to say something about
"JavaSVN does not currently support the file:// protocol but there are
plans to add support for accessing fsfs repositories in the future."
I'm assuming what I want is an FSFS connection to my repository?
(FSFS looks suspciciously like it could stand for File System Filing
System which looks suspiciously like it might mean "you connect to
your repository locally - without a network layer")
I tried scanning through all the settings in Team/SVN preferences in
eclipse but there didn't seem to be a way to set it to the
command-line interface or anything useful like that.
Does anyone have a tutorial out there which shows how to get up and
running with subclipse quickly without assuming a whole bunch of
knowledge which needs to be agregated from all corners of the Intenet?
Sorry, I'm just having a really bad night. I HATE not being able to
figure stuff out after putting in so much effort. No one's fault :/
I'm sure someone will tell me how horribly stupid I've been and how I
should have done this and read that and how I should have just "known"
some particular thing, or how my approach to learning stuff if all
