Hi, I want to set up a CVS in Eclipse.

My server is Windows advanced server 2000, is it possible to set CVS for Eclipse ? if yes, which cvs software is better ?

Where can I find some material for Eclipse CVS setup ?

Thanks.

Eclipse does work with CVS out of the box. You just need to know the address of your CVS server.

The "best CVS" actually is called "Subversion" - for that, you will need an Eclipse plugin called Subclipse, though.

Thanks for your reply , Ilja ,

1. as Subclipse is in client side in server side , could I still use CVSNT ?

2. I install it. But I can't find anywhere to set up connection .

Thanks.

1. Subversion is a system that is an *alternative* to CVS(NT). You can use CVSNT with Eclipse as is, but then you don't need Subversion/Subclipse.

2. If you have installed Subclipse, there should be some additional options in the Team preferences, if I remember correctly. Remember that you also need to install a Subversion server.
