Description Nicolas Salguero 2015-06-03 11:33:09 CEST

In Cauldron (Mga5), subversion is built without java.  In my tests, subversion builds fine with java and I need javahl so, is it possible to re-enable java in subversion package?

Best regards,

Yes, we can do it the next time we update it, there are security updates periodically for subversion.

Just curious, what purpose does the Java part of subversion serve?

Taken from https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/subversion/bindings/javahl/README:
JavaHL provides a (mostly native, using JNI and javah) implementation of
a high level Java API for Subversion, which was originally targeted for
implementors of GUI clients and IDE plug-ins for Subversion.  JavaHL
currently provides a minimal-but-complete set of APIs which expose the
core Subversion C API to Java.  It requires a JRE 1.6+ (runtime).

In my case, I use it at work to allow eclipse to connect to svn repositories and I cannot use SVNKit: it makes eclipse freeze when trying to connect to the repositories, I do not understand why, it worked in the past.

Ahh, ok thanks.  I thought Eclipse had built-in Subversion support.
