Yup, I said it… Eclipse hates SVN. The way I see it, Eclipse treats Subversion like a red-headed stepchild. How long has Subversion been around now? Years and years, since 2000 to be exact. Yeah, it’s been around for 8 years. And Eclipse still only does a half-ass job of supporting subverion. The Eclipse Foundation choose Subversive as their svn client/plugin of choice back in Nov 2007. Yet, to get Subversive up and running in Eclipse is a matter of pain and suffering.
Eclipse just released their yearly version, this year they’re calling it Ganymede, and it was supposed to kind of have svn/Subversive support…. but heck no. Good luck getting it working. The documentation/instructions suck at best, being fair, the instuctions are crap.
Oh, I’m so close to giving NetBeans a serious look.
