Hi,

I have just begun using tortoise svn and installed eclipse plugin for me. Can anyone guide me about the values that should go in Preference page dialog box ? I especially
have question about svn server and shared folder field?

Thanks & regards,

As far as I know, Tortoise doesn't plug into Eclipse. I've only used it for access to archives from the OS file browser windows. For Eclipse, I use the subclipse plugin.

I thought that to, but then I googled it yesterday and found a match. The server was down yesterday and today, so I don't kknow if it still exists.

OR... one COULD go to the actual TortoiseSVN website! Which - surprise! is tigris.org. who also bring you the Subclipse plug-in.

But the TortoiseSVN page says:

A Subversion client, implemented as a windows shell extension.


And its system requirements include Windows, IE, and the Windows Installer.

Which kind of blows it out of the water, right there, since most Eclipse plugins are OS-neutral.

Tortoise and subclipse might have some common code, but from what I can see, Tortoise and subclipse are providing services to 2 different environments and the only feature they share in common is that they both make it easier to access Subversion (also from Tigris) in their respective environments.

No, you don't use subclipse for Tortoise SVN, you use subclipse within Eclipse to access Subversion repositories. That (subclipse within Eclipse) is the way I access Subversion repositories (I gave up on Tortoise SVN several years ago).
