Subject Branches how to in Eclipse
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2003 14:47:29 GMT
This is a work around to get the branches listed in Eclipses CVS 
Perspective when the "Refresh Branches" function does not work due to a 
missing .project file in CVS.

Alternatively you can use the standard method described in the Eclipse 
Workbench User Guide > Tasks > Working in the team environment > Working 
with a CVS repository > Discovering branch and version tags, to select a 
file different from .project. Read carefully.

It is assumed that you have checked out HEAD.

1. Use the Java Perspective
2. In the Navigator browse to a file that is on the branch
    (use maven.xml, project.xml, build.xml or so)
3. Right Click and select Team > Branch
4. In the dialog click the "Details" button
5. Select "Branches" and click the "Refresh From Repository" button
6. Click "Cancel" now
7. Change to the CVS Perspective
8. Open the CVS Location

Branches now contains the branches that were found on that file you 
selected above. You can check out a branch by right clicking it.

The local copy will have the branche's sticky tag.
