The next time I tried to commit changes to my repository, I got an error message something like the following: The above is actually taken straight from an article called “subversion checksum mismatch - easy workaround.” I’m glad I found the article because it helped me fix the problem.
Contrary to the title of the blog post, however, I didn’t find Chris’s instructions all that clear, so I thought I’d take a shot at explaining it in a way that is maybe a little easier to follow.
Net Beans IDE provides tight integration with Subversion client versions 1.6.x and higher.
The IDE's Subversion support is designed to help streamline the development process for groups working from a shared repository, enabling you to perform versioning tasks directly from your project system within the IDE.
By default, the Subversion executable file is installed in the provide support for creating Subversion repositories as this is not a frequently used action (In a production environment a repository is only created once, after the design of the repository layout has been determined.) and moreover it requires administrative commands.
If you would like to experiment with the IDE's support using a local repository, you can create one using the svnadmin tool, which is included in the Subversion client software.
The result is a standardized, robust system that is conveniently packaged as part of the Apache 2.0 software, supported by numerous operating systems and third-party products, and doesn't require network administrators to open up yet another custom port., it's also a bit more difficult to set up. Much of the following discussion includes references to Apache configuration directives.
Depending on your system, and whether you install the Subversion client to a non-default location, you may also need to register the path to the Subversion executable in the IDE.
Finally, you need to make sure that you have a Subversion repository to connect to. Depending on your platform however, or whether you installed the Subversion client to a different location, it may be necessary to specify the path to the executable file explicitly.
While some examples are given of the use of these directives, describing them in full is outside the scope of this chapter.
