Setting up Subversion on Ubuntu

See here:

Ading new repositories:

<code>$ sudo mkdir /home/svn
   $ cd /home/svn
   $ sudo mkdir myproject
   $ sudo chown -R www-data:subversion myproject
   $ sudo chmod -R g+rws myproject

#make repo
 $ sudo svnadmin create /home/svn/myproject

#start svn server - --foreground keeps output in foreground for debugging server activity
svnserve -d --foreground -r /home/svn

To configure access to to the new project, edit the /home/svn/myproject/conf/svnserve.conf file created by default and uncomment the password-db line. Save the file.Edit the passwd file in the same dir and add a user and password to access this project.

Start the server with the svnserve command

Once the server is started, you can connect to the repository using a SVN client in Eclipse like Subclipse. Connect to the repository using svn://address/myproject as the project URL and root.

To add a new source project from Eclipse into the repository, select Team… Share Project. ‘Add to Source Control’ for each of the dirs in the project, and then ‘Commit’ the files.

IntelliJ open sourced – Community Edition available now!

The interesting thing about IntelliJ is that people who have used all 3 major Java IDEs (Eclipse, Netbeans and IntelliJ) all swear by IntelliJ, and yet most Java developers spend all their time using either Eclipse or Netbeans. Hmm. Anything to do with them being free? Well JetBrains is coming late to the open source party, but their new Community Edition is available for download here.
