I'm quite new to git and jgit.

I wonder how I can revert a file not yet commited.

Whith git command line I can do:
git checkout -- file


but with org.eclipse.jgit.pgm-3.2.0.201312181205-r.sh, this syntax doesn't work, as it only expects a branch name as argument, and not a filename.

Thanks in advance for any tip.

My understanding is that JGit is primarily for programatic use: If you have a Java application that needs to checkout a different version of a given file in a Git repository, the JGit jar will provide what you need to do that. The EGit plugin uses JGit in this way.

The JGit command-line script is somewhat secondary. It covers only a subset of the supported operations, and only a few variants of each. For general command-line access to a Git repository, with all the options, you should be using standard Git.

This isn't yet implemented in the command line client, the underlying porcelain API command CheckoutCommand
already supports this. I'll come up with a patch to implement this.
