Subject RE: Hosting new Ant2 repository with SubVersion!?!?
Date Thu, 25 Jul 2002 14:58:58 GMT
Is it really pure Java though? More often than not, Java bindings for C
libraries are auto-generated by SWIG, so one has a Java JAR (with native
methods), with a JNI .dll/.so native library in between the JAR and the
native (SVN in this case) library. It's more integrated than forking an
external binary (as is done for CVS in Ant currently), but has the potential
to corrupt the Java VM if run in process.

I know for sure than the Java bindings of the BerkeleyDB used by SVN are
that way, I just don't know about SVN... By since SVN uses WebDAV as its
protocol, I suppose that one only needs pure Java support for WebDAV to talk
to a SVN server!?!? Is this correct karl?

Thanks, --DD

Yes, but I'm not sure how up-to-date it is

Great!  Basically, the dev@subversion.tigris.org list is where all
conversation happens, so make sure to join that.
