How to set up Eclipse with CloudForge


Eclipse is a popular IDE initally created for Java, but which now has specific builds for most popular languages including, C & C++, PHP, etc. 


Step 1: Install the Subclipse SVN plugin


Note there is also another plugin Subversive that installs in a similar way and accomplish the same goal: SVN/Eclipse integration. But this article describes how to install and setup Subclipse.

1.1 Fire up Eclipse and click on "Help" -> "Install New Software".

1.2 Add > enter a name "Subclipse" > URL: > Check Subclipse


1.3 Click "Next" and follow the steps to complete the plugin installation. Then restart Eclipse.



Now... there is 3 options.

A. You either are the first in your Team to upload the project to the repository : the repo is empty, and the code is in your machine. If that's the case... please follow this article instead.

B. Or the project is in the repo already. Someone else already uploaded it, you just need to checkout. If that's the case... please continue with this article.

C. Or the repo is empty, and you are starting from scratch - no code yet. If that's the case... please continue with this article.


Step 2: Checkout your Project.


2.1 In the SVN perspective: > In the left navigate in your repo > Find the location where your project resides in the repo > right click > Checkout


2.2 On the Checkout SVN dialog > Select to checkout as a Project in the Workspace OR with the New Project Wizard (if starting from scratch):




2.3 Enter your CloudForge credentials



2.5 Make changes and Commit : Right Click on your Project > Team > Commit > enter a commit message > OK


If the commit succeeds, at this point all your project should be in the CloudForge repositories. And other users should be able to checkout from it.
