Main differences between original (command line, C) Git and JGit (EGit).

  • JGit does not support any SVN bridging operations. There is a feature request discussed in bug 315264. The most common ones (svn rebase, svn fetch, svn dcommit) can be handled with external launchers.
  • JGit does not support bundles in any way - they can't be created pulled, or queried. There are no current plans to add bundle support.
  • JGit supports the merge strategies "resolve" and "recursive"
  • JGit is missing support for a number of configuration settings, including most of the ones related to merging. The list of some of them:
    • 'push.default' no supported.
  • Hooks are not currently supported.
  • Creation of light-weight and signed tags is not supported (bug 386908).
  • Creation of signed commits is not supported (bug 382212).
  • When a directory is deleted from the working set, EGit will immediately remove it from the working tree and stage the deletion of the files. If you want to undo this you must manually recreate the deleted directory first. At that point you can use standard egit tools to recover the deleted files. [this one might be obsolete]
