RE: Accessing the SVN log from java Code

You definitely NEED to read the documentation, here are some pointers so you can get started:

* Several examples: http://wiki.svnkit.com/Managing_Repository_With_SVNKit

* WIKI API: http://svnkit.com/kb/javadoc/org/tmatesoft/svn/core/wc/package-summary.html (API)

But basically it drills down to (Jython code showed, Java is VERY similar):

from org.tmatesoft.svn.core import *
from org.tmatesoft.svn.core.io import SVNRepositoryFactory
from org.tmatesoft.svn.core.internal.io.svn import SVNRepositoryFactoryImpl
from org.tmatesoft.svn.core.internal.io.dav import DAVRepositoryFactory
from org.tmatesoft.svn.core.auth import BasicAuthenticationManager
from org.tmatesoft.svn.core.wc import SVNClientManager
from org.tmatesoft.svn.core.wc import SVNRevision

durl = SVNURL.parseURIDecoded(url) // Where URL is your SVN url, that starts with http:// blah, blah
repository = SVNRepositoryFactory.create(durl)
authManager = BasicAuthenticationManager(svnuser, svnpassword)
myOptions = None
clientManager = SVNClientManager.newInstance(myOptions, authManager)
updateClient = clientManager.getUpdateClient()
dstPath = File(sandbox)
rev = updateClient.doCheckout(desturl.appendPath("/trunk", False), dstPath, SVNRevision.HEAD, SVNRevision.HEAD, True)

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.

The repository doesn't keep track of checkouts, so you cannot glean
that data from the repository. 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

Although I don't use it to retrieve/parse log entries, I use SVNKit to
interrogate my repository from within Java. http://svnkit.com/
