Hi!

I'm developing an eclipse plugin and in the course of this I want to make use of the egit plugin. On the project website of egit it is described that there is no documentation available for egit.

Does somebody know, how to get information about the use of the egit plugin (e.g. how to get the nature-id of the plugin, how to push files to the git repository, ...)?

lg.

The project is still being "bootstrapped"

There is a user guide here:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/User_Guide

In order to push files to the git repository from your code you don't
need the EGit, but the JGit only. The JGit part provides an API for
working with Git repositories. The EGit plugin is a team provider for
Eclipse on top of JGit.

Hi!

Thank you for your reply. I think JGit is all I need to do my work. Is there any documentation, or other material that describes how JGit can be used. The following link is the only useful material I found.
http://code.google.com/docreader/#p=egit&s=egit&t=JG itTutorialTreeWalk

The problem with this tutorial is, that it is not complete.

Yes, we know the JGit tutorial is incomplete. Currently closing functional gaps, improving the implementation
and writing a first user guide are higher on the list. But if you ask concrete well defined questions we may be
able to answer them before JGit documentation is ready.

Hi!

Now I have a concret question about jgit. How is it possible to commt single files?

Lets imagine, that there is a directory that contains several modified files. I want to commit only one of this files. I tried to do this with the following code:

GitProvider provider = (GitProvider)RepositoryProvider.getProvider(files[0].getProj ect());
Repository repo = provider.getData().getRepositoryMapping(files[0]).getReposit ory();

ObjectId[] id = new ObjectId[]{repo.mapCommit("HEAD").getCommitId()};
Tree tree = repo.mapTree(id[0]);

Commit commit = new Commit(repo, id);
commit.setMessage("message");
commit.setAuthor(new PersonIdent("user", "local@capslock"));
commit.setCommitter(new PersonIdent("user", "local@capslock"));
commit.setTree(tree);

commit.commit();

RefUpdate ru = repo.updateRef(Constants.HEAD);
ru.setRefLogMessage("commit", true);
ru.setNewObjectId(commit.getCommitId());
ru.setExpectedOldObjectId(id[0]);
System.out.println("ID: " + commit.getCommitId());

ru.update();


The problem is, that I do not know how to set the tree to commit a single file.

Ok, I have solved the problem. You can forget the problem desctiption in the post above.

In the course of my project I want to use EGIT nevertheless. To commit a couple of files I want to make use of the CommitAction class. This class is located in the following package:

org.eclipse.egit.ui.internal.actions

My problem is, that the CommitAction class was not exported (in the Manifest file) and so it is not possible to instantiate it (access restrictions).
Other team providers such as subclipse, or subversive also provide a CommitAction class. They exported the class and so I can use it in my project.

Is it possible to export the action classes in further versions of egit, or is there a possibility to bypass the access restrictions?

Yours truly
