Eclipse - Subclipse - Unable to compare with Tag or Branch
Joined: Jan 31, 2012
I'm using Eclipse and Subclipse with my SVN repository. I'm trying to compare a tag I have checked out versus another tag so I select Compare With -> Branch (or Tag). In both instances I get the following errors:
"There are no tags for resource"
"There are no branches for resource"
Is there something in the Team preferences that I have to configure so that I can compare with other branches/tags?
At what point do you get those errors? Right after clicking "Branch/Tag", or after filling out the "Compare with" dialog?
Also, which version of Eclipse and which version of subclipse?
I can do compares even among files that don't have trunk/branches/tags in their paths in Subversion.
Yes, if you use multiple Subversion clients you must make sure that they are all at the same level, especially if using a 1.7 based client because how the .svn client database is created and managed changed dramatically in that version. (Not sure why subclipse went to version 1.8 for a Subversion 1.7 client, makes it quite confusing to keep things in sync.)
