Howtoseclipse, linux, subclipse, svn
After wasting a lot of time myself, I thought this could serve some other people…
So here’s how I did it :
- First install the Subclipse plugin
- Run sudo eclipse (that will install plugins system-wide)
- Eclipse > Install new software > Add
- Name = “whatever”
- Location = http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.6.x
- Work with: “whatever”
- Select these to install :
- CollabNet Merge Client
- Subclipse Integration for Mylyn 3.x
- Subversion Client Adapter
- Subversion JavaHL Native Library Adapter
- Subversion Revision Graph
- If you get a “Subversion 1.6 contains a bug that causes Eclipse to crash …. GNOME keyring … we recommand … “, choose OK.
- Next install the Java bindings for SVN
- sudo apt-get install libsvn-java
- Eclipse > Window > Preferences > Team > SVN
- If that triggers a “Failed to load JavaHL Library.” error, you need to add libsvnjavahl-1 in the Eclipse path :
- Just throw a symlink into one of the path in the error message :
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libsvnjavahl-1.so /usr/lib/libsvnjavahl-1.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libsvnjavahl-1.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libsvnjavahl-1.so.0.0.0
- Restart eclipse and step 3 should be solved.
- Perhaps you want to use SVN with existing checkout project ?
- Right-click on your project in Eclipse
- Team > Share Project > svn > Validate Conneciton on Finish > Finish
of what you can do with Subclipse
Subclipse is an Eclipse plugin that provides project integration with Subversion repositories. Using Subclipse you can checkout, browse, and share code from any Subversion repository.See : SubVersion
See : Official Subclipse Home Page
See : EclipseIDE
The Chinese translation of thie article.
First of all, install the subversion package (see InstallingSoftware)
The svn/javahl version in Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty) is 1.5 so you need to install subclipse 1.4, for more info see [http://subclipse.tigris.org/wiki/JavaHL]. JavaHL is provided by the libsvn-java package, which matches the OS architecture's word size. Note that JavaHL does not install in a location that is on Eclipse's default path, so eclipse must be launched with -vmargs -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jni.
NOTE: On Ubuntu 9.10+ you may need to install the eclipse-pde package before installing Subclipse.
- Click "Add..."
and add a new Remote Site with URL:
You do not need to select the other "integration"
packages unless you have Mylyn or Mylar and plan on integrating
with them. In fact, the integration packages can break things
unless you have the packages they're intended to integrate with.
To configure Subclipse to connect to a repository open the SVN Repository Exploring perspective:
Once you've configured your repository you can check out code into a new Eclipse project. You can also create new project from Subversion repositories by:
- Select a Repository
you've already configured and click Next, or choose create
a new repository location and click
Note: Old content about javahl to this page: SubversionAndJavahl. I believe the content is rather old, so if you use javahl please feel free to update the page.
Note: this guide has been tested on Ubuntu 7.06 (Feisty Fawn) and Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), and partially tested on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx).
