Recipe#5: Configure Eclipse for SVN

With access to an SVN server, you need to configure your IDE to connect to available SVN repositories. In Eclipse, you'd need to install and configure the Subclipse SVN plugin:
  1. Open menu Help > Install new software ...
  2. Add the Tigris Subclipse update site http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.6.x
  3. Select the Core SVNKit library, JNA library, and Subclipse.
  4. After installation, you can further configure the plugin at Window > Preferences > Team > SVN.
To check in a project:  right-click project in Eclipse, select Team > Share Project.
To checkout a project: select menu File > Import, select SVN > Checkout Projects from SVN.
Thereafter, all version control operations (update, commit, add, etc) are available from the Team menu.
