Creating a SVN Repository using TortoiseSVN step by step explained

SVN Repository:

Subversion is the abbreviation of SVN. We can not see a single project/team without a repository. Crowdsourced projects are maintaining their codebase/repository in cloud repositories like GitHub to track the source code changes.

 

What we are going to do today ?

We are going to create a SVN repository using a TortoiseSVN. TortoiseSVN is a software which helps to create and manage the repository using user interface instead of commands.

This may be very late to post here, but still it will help a lot. Because when I googled to find how to create a repository I could not find the correct helpful tutorials. So I struggled lot to create a repository. So posting here the step by step tutorial on Creating a SVN Repository using TortoiseSVN.

 

Prerequiste:

TortoiseSVN [Download and install it first before going further.]

 

Creating a SVN Repository using TortoiseSVN step by step explained below:

D:\Javadomain_Repository

 

Step 2:

Right click on the newly created folder (Javadomain_Repository) and

select TortoiseSVN -> Create Repository here

Step 4:

Now keep your source code/Project somewhere. We are keeping the source code in

“D:\My Projects”  and my project folder name is “MyJavaProject“.

folder structure for your better understanding,

Step 5:

Now we are going to add the above project folder to our repository.

Great! We have successfully created a SVN repository using tortoiseSVN.

 

Step 6:

Now we are going to checkout the code from our repository. We have created a folder “javadomain” in D drive. [D:\javadomain].

Go into the javadomain folder and

Right click -> SVN Checkout

code checkout has been done successfully.

 

Step 7:

Now we are going to enter into the main part of the repositories. We are going to update some file and going to check in back into the repository now.

 

Original checkedout file:


public class HelloWorld {

public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Hello, World!");

}

}

 

Now I have modified it like this,


public class HelloWorld {

public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Hello, World! by Javadomain.in");

}

}

 

Once you modify the file, it will be changed like this,

Conclusion:

Today we have learnt below things,

1. What is SVN repository ?

2. Creating repository using tortoiseSVN

3. Adding projects to repository

4. Checkout the projects from repository to our folders

5. Modifying it and check in back

6. Tracking the history of the file based on the changes.
