Using SVN in Eclipse
In many projects, it is more practical to work under source control, especially if you are going to work together with other students. This also provides access to managed version of any code base we provided, and enables us to review your code and help in solving problems remotely. Our repositories are maintained in a secure SVN server.
We use Eclipse for our projects, so here we provide some tips of how to get source control to work under Eclipse:
- Install the latest version of the Subclipse plugin for Eclipse. You can do that from within your Eclipse: goto Help -> Install New Software, click "Add..." and insert the URL of the update site for the Subclipse plugin (you can get the URL for the latest release from the Subclipse download page).
- Goto Window -> Preferences -> Team -> SVN, and set the SVN Client to SVNKit (Pure Java). Click OK.
- Goto Window -> Open Perspective [ -> Other] -> SVN Repository Exploring.
- From the toolbar of the "SVN Repositories" view, click Add SVN Repository.
- Paste the URL we provide you for your project (make sure you paste the whole URL including the "svn+ssh//" prefix).
