View Full Version : Subversion - Project Copied from Windows

I copied a project from Eclipse running under Windows 7 to Eclipse running under Ubuntu to prove it would work without modification under Ubuntu despite having reasonably complex graphics and being driven by a MySQL database. All worked fine.

Now I would like to check it in to a Subversion repository under Ubuntu through Subclipse. However Subclipse/Eclipse (not quite sure which) can still see the SVN repository references on the files that was used on Windows 7 and insists on trying to "share" the project back to that repository.

Does anyone know how I can ZAP that information so that I can treat it like a new project and "share" it into the Ubuntu SVN repository on my machine?

Thanks and Kind Regards
Steve

I assume you pasted the project into your eclipse workspace and went from there. It will work but you need to change some settings files etc. Too much effort. Instead, when I need to move a project from one place to another I tend to create a new project, then share with the repository and get the source. Much less pain this way.

Thanks for the reply. Here's how I went about it...

I copied the folder on Windows 7 to a network drive, then on Ubuntu copied the network folder to a local folder.

In the Eclipse workspace I create a new project. Then I imported the local folder asking Eclipse to create the required set of folders. Then I did a project Refresh and Rebuild - I changed something then changed it back again to ensure that something got built.

Later when I tried to use Subclipse, it reported that it was already sync'd with a repository and named the Windows 7 repository as that repo.

I would have thought that it would be commonplace to copy something taken from one project in one repository and make a new project in a different repository. For example: I might want to share something that I developed locally with a group out on the internet so taking it from my local repository and sharing it out on a global repository.

How would that be done I wonder?

Kind Regards
Steve

I have managed to resolve this now. For those that follow and who would like to know how...

I went to the project folder in the Eclipse workspace and renamed the .svn folder to some other name.

Then when I attempted to share the project, Subclipse reported that there appeared to be an incomplete set of SVN control files and offered to erase them all and recreate them for me.
