Eclipse – Adding a SVN repository in Eclipse


I'm trying to add an SVN repository to Eclipse.

I've installed Subclipse, and it seems to be working fine. But, when I try to "add a new SVN repository", I input this, for example:

I get this:

Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: RA layer request failed
svn: OPTIONS of '': could not connect to server (
Keep location anyway?

I know that my Eclipse can connect to the Internet, because I downloaded Subclipse earlier (I had to change my proxy settings).

I get a similar message for other SVN locations I've tried to add.

What is the solution?

Best Solution

This is a dead topic, but the solution is to install a client adapter along with Subclipse.

Take a look at this, and install SVN Client Adapter, SVNKit Adapter, and SVNKit Library.

Then check under Window -> Preference -> Team -> SVN and make sure there is an entry for SVN Interface.

And for future reference, if you can connect to the repository through the command line, then it must be a problem with the IDE.
