General Development From the beginning, Eclipse included tight integration with the Concurrent Versions System in order to provide access to change-management capabilities. Now, many projects - notably those run by the Apache Software Foundation - are using a different change-management system: Subversion. This article demonstrates how to add Subversion support to Eclipse and how to perform basic version-control activities from the IDE.

Its a Pity...

That both subversion & cvsnt are such a pain to get working on Windows.
The client side is ok but the underlying server is not so easy/clean.
It can be made to work but both don't work OOTB/after install. If this was there then the adoption of this feature would be much wider.

I don't know what problems you had, but I had no problems with getting subversion server working out of the box on Windows, then Apache to front it.

Neather I, SVS installed in about 5 steps w/o a problem, CVS by the other hand it wasn't easy at all.

I grabbed the binaries from the Subversion website and they installed easily into Apache 2 (grabbed from, naturally). For the client side on Windows, I'm using the Subversion build from Cygwin.

When I used CVS, I was using the Cygwin server via inetd, etc. and it was a bit of a pain to set up; if you Google up "Cygwin CVS" you should find a how-to about setting it up. Similarly, there's a good sshd how-to for Cygwin out there, too.
