JBoss AS Docs - subversion checkout/commit notes

This page consists of examples on how to checkout and commit changes in the project documentation svn repo.

The following is an example on how to checkout a book from the JBoss svn repo as an anonymous user:

 

svn co http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/jbossas/projects/docs/community/5/Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/
...
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/Makefile
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/pom.xml
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/gu-IN
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/gu-IN/Book_Info.po

 

Please note that as an anonymous user, you are not able to commit any changes you make in the book, including translation.

If you want to make changes, you need to have a username and password allocated by the JBoss AS project lead.

On getting a username and password, please checkout the book as follows: Please note to replace the "Book_Name" with the name of the book you are checking out from the svn repo. In this example, we are checking out the "Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide".

svn co https://svn.jboss.org/repos/jbossas/projects/docs/community/5/Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/ --username yourusername
Authentication realm: <https://svn.jboss.org:443> JBoss AS SVN Repository
Password for 'yourusername':
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/Makefile
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/pom.xml
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/gu-IN
A    Installation_And_Getting_Started_Guide/gu-IN/Book_Info.po

 

Once you are ready to commit your changes back to the svn repo you can commit your changes as follows:

 

cd Book_Name
svn commit -m "brief description of changes you made and your name"
.....
..list of files that were updated will be displayed.
...
