Re: Accessing the SVN log from java Code

Hello Andy, Thanks for the quick reply. We are also not bothered with the checkouts. We are only bothered about the check-ins & we will also have similar DB setup. But we will do a nightly refresh of the data in DB by pulling the log data from the svn repository. However, the point of this post is the Java Code. I am not sure how I can "look up" the svn repository from the code. Was hoping if a good Samaritan would help out with a code snippet.  Also, I am unsure who Ryan Schmidt is & how do I get in touch with him. Thanks.  AJ ________________________________ From: Andy Levy <andy.levy@gmail.com> To: Arijit Datta <arijit.datta@ymail.com> Cc: "users@subversion.apache.org" <users@subversion.apache.org> Sent: Wednesday, 18 April 2012 12:45 AM Subject: Re: Accessing the SVN log from java Code On Tue, Apr 17, 2012 at 14:53, Arijit Datta <arijit.datta@ymail.com> wrote: > Hello, > > We have a requirement whereby we need to access a svn server and find the > no. of check-ins happening for each repository. > > For example the SVN is hosted at https://svnexample.net > > And there are 3 repositories on it: > > https://svnexample.net/rep/project1 > https://svnexample.net/rep/project2 > https://svnexample.net/rep/project3 > > The requirement is to connect to this server and then find out the number of > check-in / check-outs happening per project.

Ryan Schmidt has a script that can be used to parse Apache logs to collect this information. I would recommend against pulling this data from the log in realtime, but instead populate a database with the relevant data (you'll have to write something to do this for an initial population of the database using a one-time output of svn log, then have a post-commit hook which updates the database going forward), and generate your reports from queries against that database. The only instance where this would become a problem is if you regularly change revision properties, but you can have a post-revprop-change hook to perform those updates if needed. Although I don't use it to retrieve/parse log entries, I use SVNKit to interrogate my repository from within Java. http://svnkit.com/
