To connect to a remote Subversion repository within Eclipse, select:
Window Open Perspective Other SVN Repository Exploring
You should see a perspective that has an SVN Repository window on the left side and an SVN Resource History at the bottom of the right-hand side of the Eclipse window.
Find (by mouse hovering on the rightmost button under the "SVN Repository" heading) and then click the "Add SVN Repository" button. Alternatively, you could right-click in the "SVN Repository" view to open a context menu, then select New - Repository Location. Enter the following as a new repository location:
You should see a representation of the repository for our project, including 'branches', 'tags', and 'trunk' directories.
Highlight the 'trunk' directory and choose "Checkout" from the context menu (raised by a right click). Install the contents as a new project, naming it "ToolRental", for example.
To perform Subversion activities such as update, commit, add, and the like, right-click on the name of the item to be updated, committed, or added and select the "Team" submenu. Choose the appropriate option.
Note that when you add a new package, class, or interface to your Eclipse project, Eclipse puts a question mark in the icon prior to the name of that package, class, or interface, indicating that it has not yet been added to the Subversion repository. Use the "Team" submenu of the context menu to "Add" the item to the repository.Copyright © 2006, 2008 Jonathan Mohr
