Subversion and Subclipse Troubles

938 Recognized Expert Contributor

While I know this is not strictly a Java issue I thought this would be the place to post as I know a lot of Java developers use Eclipse and most likely use SVN and Subclipse.

First up here's the error message I receive:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.   RA layer request failed
  2. svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS request for ''
Now for the details.
Server: Windows 2003, Apache 2.2, Subversion 1.6 and Tortoise SVN

Client (my laptop)
Vista, Eclipse3.4.2 Ganymede

On the server there is a Subversion repository within the svn folder of the c drive. This has been set up succesfully and I have imported the relevant source code into this.

In Eclipse I use the Subversion perspective and follow the add repository. Providing the URL I am then asked for the username and password which is according to my set up. With that provided I am met with the error listed above, and hereagain for clarity:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.clientException: RA Layer request failed
  2. svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to OPTIONS request for ''
  3. ''
  5. Keep location anyway?
If I say 'Yes' then the location is listed in the repository explorer but on trying to access I am given the message:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Folder '' does not exist remotely
I have been pulling my hair out trying to set up Subversion and Subclipse for 3 days now and thought after much Googling and ranting I should just ask for help.

Please help me, stave off my impending baldness and point me in the right direction.

Many thanks

I have a patch that allows pydoc to deal with Subversion (http://www.subversion.tigris.org) style version strings. Subversion does not do '$Revsion: num$' style tags. The closest it will get is '$Rev: num$'. So, I included a check for that type as well. It's a patch to this version of pydoc.py __version__ = "$Revision: $"

Hi, Anyone know of a good hosting company that offers both server-side Python and a subversion repository? I know of one: www.textdrive.com - they're a bit pricey, but I s'pose you gets what you pays for - they look good. Just FYI - right now I'm with sapphiresoft.co.uk. They're cheap and in my brief experience have been pretty good at responding to support

Hi, I'm trying to setup viewcvs to work with subversion 1.2.0 on Linux with Python 2.4.1. The last viewcvs (from CVS) needs subversion python bindings. I installed swig and built subversion from source with it. Everything works fine until I try to build the Python bindings. When I try "make swig-py" I get the following, Python related, error: # make swig-py

I'm trying to write a basic Subversion client because I need to integrate Subversion with a product that keeps source code in a database (so it has no notion of "working copy"). I have tried to translate the simple C examples in Garrett Rooney's book into Python, but the very clever SWIG stuff has made the Python access so different from the corresponding C that I can't do it. Example: I can create an apr array but I have no idea how...

I'm trying to get Subversion 'hook scripts' working on an Ubuntu box and the following fails. from svn import fs, repos, core, delta As far as I can tell there are two Python Subversion libraries, 'pysvn' and 'svn': 'pysvn' from http://pysvn.tigris.org/ appears to be a client side interface and isn't what I need. 'svn' appears to be a SWIG wrapper and could be what I'm looking for, but I

I’ve been using Subversion for a while to maintain the PHP web apps and sites I develop in my Windows box. But when I want to publish a new release I update the live site manually and I want to improve this process. I can’t simply export to a fresh directory and upload all files because that won’t handle renames and deletions (and the upload will take forever anyway). I typically use WinMerge to find out what files changed but there’re...
