Problem connecting SQL Developer 1.5.1 with Subversion 1.5 (win XP)

Hi I'm trying to connect the latest version of SQL Developer 1.5.1 to an svn version 1.5 repository.

I'm on a win XP machine. (svn is on Linux red hat)

The error I see is;
Testing read access for repository svn://<xxxxxxxxxxx>/var/svn...
svn: Malformed network data
svn: Malformed network data
Access refused.

I'm able to connect to other (older versions of svn) repositories.

I notice that SQL Developer uses SVNkit 1.1.6. and I have a feeling that this is not compatible with svn 1.5

Has anyone encountered this problem or has anyone successfully connected SQL DEV 1.5.1 to SVN 1.5?

Regards,
Patrick


note: the svn repository is a source code repository. (.java .class and .sql files.)
there is no DB data there, and no DB schema. (other than in the .sql files)
I'm saying this because I'm not an SQL specialist, (and even then, I'm mainly mysql!) and I seem to get the impression that source control to SQL guys might mean something slightly different. i.e. versioning a DB rather than the source code that creates a DB. If I'm wrong about this, apologies! ;)

    The problem is with svnkit. Until now sqldeveloper use version 1.1.6.
    You can fix this with svnkit 1.2. You have to download it from http://www.svnkit.com/org.tmatesoft.svn_1.2.0.standalone.zip and put some files into sqldeveloper extension directory.

    copy
    - jna.jar
    - svnkit-javahl.jar (rename into svnjavahl.jar)
    - svnkit.jar
    - svnkitsrc.zip
    - trilead.jar

    from svnkit 1.2 to

    %sqldeveloper%\jdev\extensions\oracle.jdeveloper.subversion

    It works for me.

    There are arguments both ways, but the current implementation in SQLDeveloper only supports version control on source files. IMO there needs to be a link between the vc repository, the source file you are working on and the object it creates in the database.

    As it stands, you can edit and compile a procedure in the database, but if you don't remember to extract it back to its source file, you end up with a mismatch. Similarly, if you edit the source file and forget to run it into the database you end up with a mismatch.

    Yeah, that should have been addressed right from the beginning...
    For now, you can still vote on the feature request asking to combine file and internal editor (the solution to versioning, compiling and running/debugging): http://htmldb.oracle.com/pls/otn/f?p=42626:39:2572465713320559::NO::P39_ID:3262, so you add weight for implementing sooner.

    Thanks,

    I've already voted for that and raised one of my own about the version control issues. I don't hold out much hope.

    Thanks,
    I had similiar issue. I created local SVN repository using TortoiseSVN 1.5.5 using Subversion 1.5.4
    I followed the suggestion (getting new svnkit and copying file ) and now I'm able to open this repository by SQL Developer

    I just copied/replaced/renamed files according to these instructions but only get an error message

    SEVERE     37     0     oracle.ide.IdeCore     Exception firing addinsLoaded to oracle.jdevimpl.vcs.VCSManagerImpl$7@1966070

    when I start SQL Developer. This is with SQL Developer 1.5.4 and SVNkit 1.3.0 on WinXP.

    Any suggestions?
