Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219760
Eclipse doesn't handle simultaneous svn access from commandline
Last modified: 2008-05-06 13:11:31 EDT
Description of problem:
When accessing files from the commandline (such as quick ant run / test / change
/ etc), and checking them back into subversion (or even altering svn properties)
causes eclipse to have problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa | grep eclipse
Frequently. Depending on how it's done as to the results. It's annoying now, and
the solution is to ensure it's all checked in from the command line ('coz
eclipse doesn't think it's a repo anymore...), wipe the project and re-check out
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use SVN Repo exploring to checkout a project.
2. Maybe modify a file using eclipse (unsure)
3. Bring up a console in Eclipse's workspace and modify a file, or file's
properties (svn:keywords for example), and (optionally) check the file in.
A refresh (F5) or team->update of the file / directory / project causes Eclipse
to come up with something like:
"update -r HEAD /home/austin.arrowsmith/workspace/<project>/build
svn: Working copy 'build' is missing or not locked"
Or my favourite:
"svn: '/home/austin.arrowsmith/workspace/<project>/build' is not under version
For it to update it self to what is now in the repo (or file system), like the
_real_ version of Eclipse used to under FC4...
I'll provide some screen shots of some messages that it pops up. Unsure how
useful they'll be, but I'll provide them because they did pop up. Perhaps some
more information should be in the dialogs when these errors occur?

Not too brilliant in it's helpfulness for tracking down the cause, but at least
you know the problem exists.
Is this perhaps a Subclipse bug? Fedora Extras -> eclipse-subclipse
CCing Robert to get his opinion
I think this is either an upstream issue or a problem with subclipse. Moving to
Fedora Extras -> eclipse-subclipse to get Roberts opinion.
I have been unable to repeat those errors with the current eclipse-subclipse
Does the new release solves the bug?
