Hi, I need to push or pull branches into remote branches from or to origin, I do not see how to do it, does anyone has a clue how to do this?

Also I have not been able to find a good javadoc for jgit. I would appreciate if anyone could point me to it.

regards.

Find javadoc here http://www.eclipse.org/jgit/download/
Also the maven repository should contain the javadoc for each artifact.

Hello Matthias, I still have not got an answer so I thought maybe you or anyone could redirect me to a guru if you do not know the answer yourself, I am newbee with git and I am thinking of incorporating it in our product with help of jGit,

in a scenario where a new branch is added to the origin repository we sometimes would like to get it also to our local repository, now the command git pull origin "branch_name" does the trick, or from origin one could do git push remote_rep push "branch_name"

Now just by looking at the javadoc I can not find any "set" method in the PullCommand or PushCommand that does the trick. neither can I see how the Repoisotry should be set so that the right branch is pulled or pushed.

I think this is basic functionality in Git and since JGit is pretty powerful tool it would be strange if it does not cover it.

So I would be really thankful for any kind of help or direction.
