Differt kinds of changesets? [message #40789] Sat, 31 January 2009 17:27 Go to next message

Hello all,

I have question about the change set feature of the synchronize view in
Eclipse. I used to be able to click on a button to display changesets, but
for new synchronization actions, this functionality seems to have moved to a
submenu. The problem is, that I like the "old method" much more. I can't
find out how it gets toggled.

On http://i44.tinypic.com/s289y1.jpg you find two screenshots. The upper is
for the situation that I want, the lower is for the other situation. The
strange thing is that they both occur in the same Eclipse installation and
workspace: the "SVN (GoTravelhome)" synchronization action was created a
while ago, while the "SVN (Travelhome.nl)" action was created just now. I
can switch to the GoTravelhome view to get the upper view at this moment, I
am unable to create new views with that button. New views will automatically
have the lower view.

Can anyone shed a light on the difference between the toolbars?

Thanks in advance,

Jorrit

Hi Jorrit,

this is related to the new support for Eclipse logical models as it already exists for CVS.

See the related post "Subversive support for Java Model etc in Team Synchronizing Perspective
(ModelProvider for Change sets)" for some background.

Logical model support is in the Eclipse API since 3.2. It allows to associate logical objects
with physical objects on the filesystem. Before the relation one object = one file existed.
Now also 1:N, M:1 or even N:M relations are possible, e.g. one object = several files or one file
containing several objects.

To be honest, I continued to use the old style triangle because I felt the new "SVN Changesets"
model has some strange behaviour with regard to incoming updates. Did you notice anything?
Would be good to have a look at this and report any errors in order to help the Subversive guys to
improve the new API.

Cheers, J

Hi Jörg,

thanks for replying. There were some thing that made me like the old
situation more than the new situation. I will try to make a list of
them, perhaps it might lead to improvements. I recall that I liked the
way in which the file tree was displayed more in the old situation than
in the new situation.

But what my most important question is, is how it is possible that on
the same Eclipse installation and on the same workspace both versions of
this mechanism are available.

I only use PHP projects, which don't have special models for this
perspective. I rather use the old behaviour because of that.
