Folks,

I am used to using svn from command line as well as from Windows TortoiseSVN. I just installed subversive within Eclipse. In order to test how it works, here is what I did:

1. On the svn server, I created a brand new repository called Test.
2. I created 3 subdirectories under Test - trunk, branches, and tags.
3. Within Eclipse, under "SVN Reportory," I connected to http://mysvnsvr/svn/Test. This is working. I can see the 3 subdirectories that I created.
4. Now, I created a new "Hello World" Java application called MyNewProject using Maven quickstart archetype. This creates one main directory, MyNewProject, and two subdirdirectories - src and target.

At this point, I am struggling on how to associate this new project to my new repository. Most of the documentation I saw talks about first checking out the project from subversion. In my case, I do not have any project to check out yet.

1. How do I associate a new project to the repository using Subversive?

2. Do I need to create "MyNewProject" directory under SVN manually or will Subversive automatically create one for me?

3. Do I need to set "ignore" option on "target" directory or will Subversive automatically do it for me?

4. How about "ignore" options for other files that eclipse creates such as ".metadata."? Do I need to do it manually or will Subversive automatically take care of it?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Regards,
Peter

Hi,

Just use "Share Project..." option from the Team pop-up menu. Subversive will create directory on the SVN repository according to your guidance given by going through the "Share Project" wizard steps.
All autogenerated stuff will be automatically ignored. But still, you can check before commit if something is going wrong on this part (some autogenerated resources are proposed to be committed or something important is ignored) and perfom corresponding fixes using actions like:
Team-> Add to SVN
Team->Add to svn:ignore

P.S.
If some share Project wizard steps is unclean for you, you always can check Subversive help pages.
