the command line option to force commit is:
cvs commit -m "your message" -Rf yourFile.java
any way to do this within Eclipse?

I'm not familiar with CVS command line options, but If you are trying to just force in a file, overwriting what is already there, you can use the Override and Commit option off the right click menu on the synchronize view.
This will overwrite and differences you have with CVS, with your version, without trying to merge the changes.
Is that what you mean?

nope
The file I have in my local PC is exactly the same as the one in CVS. what I want is to be able to force commit that file again, even though there are no differences between my local file and CVS. Eclipse seems to commit the file, but it doesn't do it.

exactly, but this is based on the fact that my local file is different from the one in CVS, which is not my case.
the point is: I want to create a new Revision, even though the revision will be the same as the previous one.
The command line I posted does that, but I was wondering if eclipse has this feature.
thanks
