RE: [subversive-dev] subversive with RSE problems.

Dear Bill, 

Thank you for providing additional information. Now I see that you are using
Subclipse, but not Subversive. So, please contact Subclipse team to resolve
your problem. Official Subclipse site is

There isn't a svn client option bu I am using the SVNKit SVN  interface if
thats what you meant

Strange thing: I can't get that. When I click on details the dialog dies.
Is it saved in a log file?

1) From within the Remote System Explorer Perspective, I navigate to my
project ont he external server
2) I right click on the root folder of the project and select create
external project
3) I switch to the JAVA Perspective
4) I right click on the project and goto Team -> share project
5) I select SVN and click NEXT
6) I then get the Null Pointer Error

After getting the error once, I cannot reproduce it without removing the
external project and recreating it. Otherwise, it just wont let me select
the Next button when selecting SVN.

I'll admit, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this. But, The only links
allowed ssh are from the local eclipse machine to remote machines containing
the repository and the working code. I'm not sure how an external link from
the svn repository to the local computer would help, but its not allowed.

This is the problem. I'd like to roll up my sleeves and fix this problem. I
didn't know where it was. Eclipse should hide any noticeable differences
between a linked folder and a real folder for the plug ins. 
So I think I need to look at the eclipse core itself. Thanks for the tip. As
you can see I'm using a couple different plug ins. Its difficult to figure
out where problems actually arise from in the code.
