Automatic CVS checkout after installation [message #67151] Fri, 06 May 2005 12:37 Go to next message

Hello,

first, sorry for my poor English...

I want to ask if it's possible to check out some cvs projects after "the
installation" of eclipse.

If there are a lot of clients in a network, that have to be installed with
eclipse, you have to configure the cvs repository and checkout projects
manually. This need a lot of time! You can configure a workspace with the
metadata directory, that you can distribute to all clients, that have to
be installed. So the user have a cvs repository in eclipse and only has to
change the username and password. After that the user have to checkout
some cvs modules. That's not very user-friendly.

One idea is to display a screen where the user can enter his username and
password. After this preconfigured projects are checked out automatically.
Another idea, that I have, is to check out the projects with a read-only
user by the command line but then the workspace have to be automatically
refresh the new projects. I don't know if this is possible.

Hope you can understand my idea/problems.

Thanks a lot!

Bye

Daniel

The closest I can think of is currently a project set.

If you set up an initial workspace with a single project that contains a
project set, then people can use that project set to check out whatever you
specify in it.

When they choose to import based on the project set, it asks for their
user/password to the CVS.

My company uses the projectset ui plugin (which works pretty well) so devs
can open the project set file (psf) in the editor and choose what to import
or just pick "all".

Hope this helps!

A project typically has dependencies to other projects or artifacts that
in turn have dependencies, in arbitrary depth. A mechanism that can use
this information and has the ability to materialize everything you need
into your workspace in collaboration with the team providers is
extremely useful.

A project that aims to provide this is currently being proposed to
Eclipse. Read more about it here:

Kind regards,
