Verify the SVN Workspace

After creating the Subversion local working copy to hold the working copies of your Package files, you can verify that it functions correctly before attempting to use it with Enterprise Architect. You need to be able to add files to Subversion, lock the files and commit changes to those files.

Select the directory you specified as the working copy, in the Subversion checkout command when preparing the SVN workspace. For example:

Create a Local Working Copy


Create a test file, such as Test.txt, containing the text Subversion Test. For example:

     C:\> echo Subversion Test > Test.txt


Execute each of these Subversion commands:

  • svn add Test.txt
  • svn commit -m"Commit comment" Test.txt
  • svn update Test.txt
  • svn lock Test.txt
  • Use your preferred editor to modify the file and save the changes
  • svn commit -m"Second commit comment" Test.txt

The commands should execute without any errors and without prompting the user for any extra input.


  • Your environment must be set up such that you can perform these operations without ever being prompted for user ID or password; for further information, please see the Caching Client Credentials topic in the official Subversion documentation
