I've used Subversive for quite a while to check out, edit, and work with projects stored in SVN.

I'm experimenting with checking out a project from SVN from the command line, and then importing that project into Eclipse, to hopefully end up with a similarly-configured project, as if I had checked out the project in Eclipse.

With the project checked out from Subversive, it's fully connected with SVN, so it can get SVN info and history on elements.

If I check out the project from the command line and then import "Existing Projects into Workspace", the project is imported without any knowledge or connection to SVN.

I don't think the "Share Project" function is what I need here, as that seems like it wants to check in these files to SVN, but that's not what I need.

What are some reasonable options to get this done?

Hi David,

if your subversion repository is setup int the svn repository browser perspective as svn repository,
then Eclipse should detect that your project is shared after importing it in the way
you described below. We also do the initial check-out on the command line and then use "Import ...
Existing Projects into Workspace". This should work.

Cheers, Jörg

Hi David,

maybe you have to close and re-open the project and/or restart Eclipse in order to make this work.

Cheers, Jörg

i have the same problem in eclipse with Subversive:
the way File->Import->General-> "Existing Projects into Workspace" doesent work,
it sais, "No projects are found to import" when i select the root directory

i used SVN Workbench on ubuntu and now i want to continue editing that existing Project with eclipse

it seems eclipse can only import projects, that were created by eclipse before.

is there another way to import it?

If Subversive finds the SVN metadata, doing a "Share Project" just
connects the project to the repository, it doesn't check in anything.
Anyway, the reason for which you were not seeing the project
automatically connected (assuming option Windows | Preferences | Team |
SVN | General | Enable automatic project share was checked) might have
been because of https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=336689,
which has been fixed in a version not released yet.

Workaround: do any SVN-related operation and/or add your repository in
the SVN repository explorer and you should see your projects connected.

That function is to import (copy, move, link) existing Eclipse projects
into your current workspace, assuming they are in another one or in a
different folder.

If you want to create a project from sources existing in a "plain"
folder (or in a "project" created with other tools), you simply need to
create a new project in Eclipse (a Java project, for instance), set it
up as needed and than import your files using File | Import | General |
File System. However it's possible that SVN metadata are not imported in
this way.
The easiest way to create a new Eclipse project from plain files in a
SVN repository is to use the wizard File | Import | Project from SVN.

Mauro.

When I installed Eclipse 4.2 Juno and had to import my existing projects into workspace, I also had to enable the 'SVN' entry under Window > Preferences > General > Appearance > Label decorations for my projects to visually appear connected to SVN (see also Window > Preferences > Team > SVN > Label decorations > Icon decorations).
