CVS Checkout wizard

This wizard helps you check out one or more projects from a CVS repository. It is available from the Import menu, the New > Project menu and the toolbar of the CVS Repository Exploring perspective. It is also opened when performing a Checkout As from the CVS Repositories view.

The first page of the checkout wizard allows you to choose an existing repository location or create a new one. If you choose to create a new location, the page from the New Repository Location wizard is shown.

After a repository location is selected, you can now choose one or more modules to check out. You can either enter a module path or select one or more from the list of existing modules. A dot (.) can be entered to checkout the entire contents of the repository for those rare cases where the repository represents a single project.

CVS Checkout wizard

Once one or more modules are selected, you can choose to check out one or more selected modules as a new projects or into an existing project or folder. If one module is selected and it does not contain a .project file (the Workbench project configuration file), you will also have the option to configure the project using the new project wizard (in order to make the project a Java project, for instance). The option to check out subfolders is selected by default. Also, you are given the option to add the checked out modules to a working set.

For a single project, you can configure the location of the project to be either the default location or a custom location outside the workspace. For multiple projects, you can configure the parent folder where all the projects should be located.
