Installing this plugin

This plugin is in all EasyEclipse distributions. You likely do not need to download and install it separately, unless you try to install it on an non-EasyEclipse distribution, which is not really supported.

Getting started

Help is available for this plugin, in the Help > Help Contents menu in EasyEclipse.

There are two basic ways to start using CVS from Eclipse:

To check out an existing project from an existing CVS repository, select File > New > Project, then CVS > Projects from CVS, hit Next, then enter the required values for a CVS repository. Tip: you can also paste (Ctrl-c) a CVS root connection string, for example Then hit Next again, and enter the module path and name. You can also select "Use an existing module" and browse on the server. Hit Finish to check out the project. If it is not an Eclipse project, the New Project wizard will then launch, to transform this project into an valid Eclipse project (with a .project file).

To share a project that you have created locally, right-click on the project, and select Team > Share Project.

Once a project is checked out or shared, the CVS functionalities are available by right-clicking on the project in the Navigator or Package Explorer view, and selecting the Team menu.
