After you install Netbeans 5.5 you need to download/install subversion module.
At Netbeans menu select ‘Tools’ – ‘Update Center’ to add subversion module.
If the installation finished, you will see menu Subversion on Netbeans menu.

You’ll also need to install SVN : download page here

I’m using PuTTY’s plink.exe for ssh. You can get PuTTY package here.
Extract PuTTYto a directory and add path to that directory.
How to setting enviroment variables in Windows:

  • Open System Properties (by right click ‘My Computer’ – ‘Properties or by press button ‘windows’ + ‘break’)
  • Select tab Advanced & click button ‘Environment Variables’
  • You can edit System Variable : ‘path’
  • Add path to your PuTTY directory. (don’t delete other path, just add with ‘;’ as separator)
  • OK
  • You can check whether you have correctly add PuTTY’s path by running console (cmd) and run plink.exe without fullpath.

Then open subversion configuration file at : %APPDATA%\Subversion\config
Assuming you using default folder it will be : “c:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Subversion\config”
Open file config using notepad or other text-editor.
Edit the [tunnels] section and add :

ssh = $SVN_SSH plink.exe -l <username> -pw <password>

Of course change the <username> and <password> with yours. lol.

Then save it & restart your Netbeans.
After that you should able to check out/import project via svn+ssh.

  • Select menu ‘Subversion’ – ‘Checkout…’
  • URL example : svn+ssh://100.1.1.1/opt/subv/myproject/trunk
  • Leave username & password empty
  • Click next & follow the instructions.

If there’s no errors then Congratulations 🙂
