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 : 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.
To install Subclipse:
You need to install the version of subclipse matching your subversion client, for example with
$ svn --version
svn, version 1.6.17 (r1128011)
the right Remote site for subclipse installation is http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.6.x For details see subclipse documentation
NOTE: On Ubuntu 9.10+ you may need to install the eclipse-pde package before installing Subclipse.
Open Eclipse, go into the menus : Help -> Install New Software...
Click "Add..." and add a new Remote Site with URL: http://subclipse.tigris.org/update Name: subclipse.tigris.org
- Select "Subclipse Plugin" and optionally "Subclipse Book"
- Next, Next, Accept license terms, Finish.
Note: 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.
- Restart Eclipse
A note on architecture
There is at least one bug forcing Eclipse 3.4 users to use 32-bit Eclipse on 64-bit Ubuntu, necessitating 32-bit compatibility Java and therefore 32-bit JavaHL (libsvn-java), which is not in the repositories. The alternative SVN implementation, SVNKit, is ill-maintained and does not properly handle SSH host key fingerprinting, so JavaHL is still recommended.
Configuring a Subversion Repository
To configure Subclipse to connect to a repository open the SVN Repository Exploring perspective:
Click on Window -> Open Perspective -> Other
Highlight SVN Repository Exploring -> click Ok
You should now have the SVN Repository view open in the right hand column. Now we can add our Subversion repository url:
Right click in the SVN Repository column -> New -> Repository Location
Enter the url of your repository -> click Ok
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:
Clicking on File -> New -> Project
Expand the SVN folder -> Checkout Projects from SVN
You can upload your code into a Subversion repository by:
Right click the project -> Team -> Share Project
Highlight SVN -> Next
Select a Repository you've already configured and click Next, or choose create a new repository location and click Next.
- Choose the folder you want to upload to and click Finish.
Once you've shared your project or checked one out you can access most common svn functions by right clicking the project and selecting an item from the Team menu.
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).
