Accessing remote SVN Repositories from Eclipse

April 30th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

When using subclipse to get a remote SVN repository, your IDE may complain as below:

RA layer request failed
svn: OPTIONS of ‘https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-samples/petclinic/trunk’: could not connect to server (https://src.springframework.org)

Here’s what I did to fix it. Change the client from JavaHL JNI to SVNKit(PureJava) option in the SVN node of your eclipse IDE’s Window | preferences. Here’s the reason.

    I am doing import on SVN from location https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-samples/
    However it is asking for userid and passord. Aren’t these samples supposed to be free!!!

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog
    before but after browsing through some of the
    posts I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly pleased I found it and I’ll
    be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!
