In order to use SVN in Eclipse, you need a SVN plug in, preferably Subclipse. Here's the installation guide.
- Go to Help → Install new Software. Locate the "Add" button.
- Add a new remote site using the name "Subclipse" and the URL
- Then, select all packages and click Next.
- Click through the dialog. Accept the terms of service and the warning that you install unsigned software.
- Restart Eclipse when prompted so.
Now you should have SVN integration. You can either manually add SVN repositories or define them as you go. Mostly you want to share an existing project to a new SVN repository. This is how to do that.
Manually adding repos
- Go to Window → Open Perspective → Other....
- Select "SVN Repository Exploring"
- In the left panel, right-click and select New. Here you can add your remote repositories.
Once you have added a repository, you can share a project on it.
Checking out from an existing repo
If you already have a project in SVN, you can also checkout the existing project over the SVN Explorer, if that is what you want to do.
- Right-click the repository
- Click Checkout
- Use "Check out as a project in workspace"
- Click Finish
Defining a new repo as you go
- In the main perspective, right-click the project and select Team
- This will be the main menu for all SVN actions (Committing, Branching, etc.)
- First, select Share and work through the menu, specifying your remote repository
