Programmers can check out the latest version of the code from a repository, make their changes to the code, and then commit the files back to Subversion.
You can add the Subclipse plug-in to Eclipse by creating an update site in Eclipse and download and install Subclipse. Select the most recent Subclipse update by checking the box next to the update. 2.1.4 Check the Subversion feature that you want to install. 4.1 First you need to fill out the URL for the repository. 5.2.1 If the project had not been previously shared, Eclipse will ask if you would like to create a new repository to share the project in or if you would like to use an already existent repository to share the project in.
Choose the repository that you have already created for your project and click Next.
Switch and update are the same code paths within Subversion.
If you do not change the URL it is just behaving like update and the Switch dialog exposes all the options available.
An entire history is kept in case you make a mistake, but always pause and check your work before marking as merged.
Note: constantly updating your code from the repository helps avoid conflicts Commit....
Double-click the file to get a compare editor, and copy-paste what you need to resolve onto your local copy.
When you have the local copy finished, right-click on the file and choose Mark as Merged. Think very hard before selecting "Mark as Merged", as it will override what is in the repository.
From there you can look at your outgoing changes, and others incoming changes, and synchronize your code before committing to the repository.
Double-clicking on a file will open a side-by-side view of the file and its changes.
Or, if your are in the "Team Synchronizing" perspective, right-click on the resources and select "Commit".
