import - How do I check out an SVN project into Eclipse as a Java project?
add from (8)
I was trying to check out a project from SVN using Eclipse. I tried using "Checkout As" to make it into a "Java project from existing Ant script", but the project wizard requires the file to have already been downloaded. Is there a way to checkout the project into Eclipse as a Java project, without having to download it elsewhere first?
(I am using Eclipse Ganymade 3.4.1 with Subversive.)
Make sure you have the svn plugin installed see here - http://www.eclipse.org/subversive/downloads.php
- From Eclipse's File menu, choose Import to display the import manager.
- Choose Checkout Projects from SVN
- Create a new location
- Enter your repository url
- Hit finish
How to Open an Existing SVN Project in Eclipse
You'll first need to install an SVN plugin for Eclipse - check out Subclipse.
The answers to this question document the steps for checking out from an SVN repository.
You'll find the commands for SVN under the
Teamsub-menu when you right click on your project.
I've had trouble in the past when connecting to SVN repositories using the
svn+ssh://protocol - a quick fix is to change the
Window > Preferences > Team > SVN) to the pure Java option (SVNKit IIRC).
Download the SVN tortise softaware than paste the project link as it is like :
If it wasn't checked in as a Java Project, you can add the java nature as shown here.
Can anyone tell me how to download the project
It's a SVN repository. SVN is a version control system (Software used to track changes to your code etc) . You have to check out the repository using an SVN client of some sort.
check this tutorial out for using an SVN client. http://www.themememe.com/subversion-for-absolute-beginners
Since you dont want to contribute any changes back to the project, you can use simply look up the importing part. But I recommend you learn more about SVN and other version control systems such as GIT. They will really help you in any kind of software engineering.
Let us take an example.
Suppose I wish to generate a number between 5-10:
int max = 10; int min = 5; int diff = max - min; Random rn = new Random(); int i = rn.nextInt(diff + 1); i += min; System.out.print("The Random Number is " + i);
Let us understand this...
Initialize max with highest value and min with the lowest value.
Now, we need to determine how many possible values can be obtained. For this example, it would be:
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
So, count of this would be max - min + 1.
i.e. 10 - 5 + 1 = 6
The random number will generate a number between 0-5.
i.e. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Adding the min value to the random number would produce:
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Hence we obtain the desired range.
