Hi all,

When we use your current Subversive plug-in with Eclipse Helios its "Team" -> "Synchronize View" lists files which have no change. In consequence, we have to double-click-us-through a lot of source files in the "Synchronize View" to only discover that there is no change and that we do not have to commit a particular file into our SVN repository.

These two files do not actually have any changes.

In our project we use a self-written Eclipse plug-in which generates Java code from some configuration files. We also check-in those generated source code files into our SVN repository. After some testing we determined that only these generated source code files turn up in the "Synchronize View" without having any difference w.r.t. the already checked-in version. Note, we verified that both generated and the already checked-in file are identical by comparing their MD5 hashes.

We use two "different" ways of executing our plug-in code in Eclipse. Although the same plug-in code is executed (we verified this) in one case the generated files have the "SVN Text Status: Replaced (Not Added)" and in the other "SVN Text Status: Not Modified". If the generated files have the status "Replaced (Not Added)" they turn up in the "Synchronize View". With this, the problem boils down to the question: Why do our generated files have got the status "Replaced (Not Added)" instead of "Not Modified"?

Here are the two ways we execute our plug-in code to generate these source code files. When we fully build our project, our plug-in code is triggered. It deletes all already existing generated source code files and generates them anew. The generated files now have the status "Replaced (Not Added)". However, if we select a generated source code file, delete it and generate it by manually executing corresponding GUI actions, the generated file has the status "Not Modified". We do not understand why there is a difference between these two approaches.

An interesting side note: Generated source files are not deleted during the clean-phase, but during the full rebuild phase. We are not certain wether this might be the source of the error.

We also tested the Subclipse Eclipse plugin and found that its "Synchronize View" does not show files with the same content. However, until the synchronize view is shown, the files are also marked with status 'D'.
Moving from Subversive to Subclipse would actually solve our problem. However, we are interested in finding a solution for your plug-in.

Is this error due to the fact that files are deleted during the build phase, or is there an error in the subversive code that causes it to record those files as deleted, even if some of them are added back to the source tree without modification?

Thank you in advance.
