I have been trying to set up cvs repository in Eclipse. It gives me read only permission. I can't write a file onto cvs repository. Can anyone tell me how to get the write permission so that I can store files from Eclipse editor to cvs repository in Eclipse.
Also, is there any resource available that explains the process of versioning the files in Eclipse?
Thank you.

If you can read but not commit to cvs, that's an indication that your CVS login isn't authorized to update the CVS repository. It's not an Eclipse problem, it's a problem with how your CVS login was set up.

As far versioning as CVS and Eclipse, it's basically the same as raw CVS except that Eclipse makes it a lot friendlier. There's a (fairly old) book on Eclipse that has a chapter on CVS, but I forget its title. It's the one with the sickle moon shining through a window and a desk lamp on its cover.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

Did you take a look at the Eclipse online help?
