In Debian javahl is in the standard repository, so you can just apt-get it. It's not very clear at all how to tell subversive to use the native libraries on Debian Linux. After some puzzling and looking at the source, I found the following workaround:

The JavaHLClientWrapperFactory that Subversive is using, looks into the eclipse/plugins/org.polarion.team.svn.client.javahl.win32.XXX directory, with XXX beging the highest number.

In that directory it looks for any file which either ends with .dll or .so and has "java" in its name.

So, to get it to work it did the following:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install subversion libsvn-java

cd [ECLIPSE_HOME]/plugins/org.polarion.team.svn.client.javahl.win32_1.1.3

mv libsvnjavahl-1.dll libsvnjavahl-1.dll.OLD

ln -s /usr/lib/jni/libsvnjavahl-1.so libsvnjavahl-1.so

[start eclipse]

On my system 1.1.3 was the highest version, but this can of course be different in the future. You have to create the symlink in the directory with the highest version.

If libsvnjavahl-1.so is not installed in /usr/lib/jni on your system, just "locate javahl" and try to use any other libsvnjavahl-X.so you find.

Perhaps Subversive could use a more intuitive method to load the native libraries on Linux? Especially the .win32 directory is not a very obvious location for storing the linux library ;)

Kind regards,

the symbolic link you mentioned can also be put into this directory on linux/unix systems:


...so you don't need to use the win32 directory.

Until yesterday it worked for me on to add the following to my Eclipse starter configuration (using the Debian package):

Code: Select all

-vmargs -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/jni

funnily, as of today, the library cannot be found anymore. There was a Kernel update today, and I installed Hibernate Tools (disabled it again after Subversive stopped working).

So I just tried the above solution with the symlink, but that doesn't work either. So it's SVNkit for now :roll:

Any further ideas are very welcome!

It took some time, but I finally managed to activate JavaHL again. Instead of setting the java.library.path in the desktop starter, it is much better to do it in eclipse.ini.

Anyone have a solution for this on MacOSX?
