    Default Synching Projects in Eclipse?

    I've been working on a project in Eclipse for a while. It's a group project, so I'm often committing to and updating from the repository.
    Due to a recent reorganization around here, I've been given a copy of the Project (also placed in Eclipse). I have to work on this copy to experiment with changes, and only then move that to the "main" Project.
    Question: After I make changes to the second Project, how do I transfer them to the main Project? Does Eclipse have some "synch projects" feature that I've missed, or should I use a different program to get it done?

    This is probably going to depend on the type of repository you're using. This is less of an eclipse question and more of a question for your specific repository.

    "Type of repository"? Do you mean, like SVN?

    Sure. The question isn't how to do this in eclipse, the question is how to do it in SVN.

    But let me ask a dumb question: why can't you just simply copy the files over?

    I can do it manually, sure (and hope I haven't forgotten any).
    And I suppose it's possible to use SVN to do it. But I've almost never used SVN - mostly, I rely on Eclipse to synchronize my files with the repository. I was hoping Eclipse also had a way to synchronize two Projects, but if it doesn't, I guess I'll be using SVN for it...
    Thanks for the help, regardless.

    But what repository is it?
    All Eclipse does is use the same interface to a repository that you would use writing the commands manually, for SVN, CVS, whatever other repository it is.

    So the functionality is entirely down to what you can do with SVN.

    You can merge two completely unrelated branches if need be...I've never done it, but from what I know of SVNs structure I don't think it'll care. If it encounters two files with the same name in the same location then it'll ask you to manually merge (if there is no common root). This is all in Eclipses interface as well....<right-click project>->Team->Merge.
    KevinWorkman and ourimaler like this.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Thanks for the help - Team->Merge was exactly what I was looking for.
