red exclamation mark on folders? [message #17026] Wed, 23 April 2008 20:57 Go to next message

I took a new eclipse dynamic web project and added it to my repository.
But two folders under the web folder (the folder where WEB-INF and
META-INF live) have a red exclamation mark, the folder css, and in the
WEB-INF folder the folder classes. The classes folder has some
configuration files in it, e.g., for logging, and the css folder has my
CSS stylesheet files in it.

How can I configure subversive so that these folders and their files are
put in the subversion repository?

Thanks

Hello Rusty,


Red exclamation mean that something goes wrong with working copy
processing.

Most frequent case is using external (relatively to Eclipse IDE) build
process which make some damage to working copy. For example it can copy
svn folders from source folders into corresponding binaries folders. In
that case copied .svn folders is placed in wrong path. So, erroneous
working copy parts are marked with red exclamation.
In order to avoid this situation you can correct your build process in
order to prevent copying of .svn folders. Another one way is do not use
external builders.

Also resources can be decorated with red exclamation mark if working copy
is damaged in some way, for example it can happen when SVN
meta-information is locked by some external process in time of update,
commit etc.

In last case you need to recheckout damaged working copy parts. In first
case (if output folder is not versioned) you need to remove all .svn
folders inside output folder then refresh project in Eclipse IDE. But if
output folder is versioned you still need to resheckout this working copy
part.

Great, thanks. I removed the .svn folders and did another commit and it
looks good now.
