There are several ways to get the source for the Eclipse projects. Most developers are actually developing their own plug-ins and are interested in browsing the Eclipse source and using it during debugging. For this, you can either browse the SVN repository online or use the source included in the Eclipse SDK download. The download contains source zips which can be attached to jars in the SDK's Java tooling and used for browsing and debugging.
Anonymous SVN is available via http or by using the svnserve protocol:
- Command-line: svn co svn://dev.eclipse.org/svnroot/technology/some.repository
Committer access to SVN
Developers with commit rights have individual user ids and passwords in the Eclipse project development repository. As a committer you can use SSH (Secure SHell) to connect to the SVN repository using a subversion plugin or via the command line. Committers can use svn+ssh or https:
- svn co svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/svnroot/technology/some.repository
