Hi,

I'm fairly new at using Eclipse & I just came across this for the first time, googled it & couldn't find diddly about it, so I was wondering if anyone here might know what this is:
In my Eclipse package explorer, I have a couple of projects freshly checked out of CVS. Previously the project names have appeared normal but now they have a > sign before them, and a server's hostname in square brackets after, like this:

> MyProject [SomeServer]

Why is this? What's caused it & what does it mean?

The server is the one we use for CVS hosting - I don't know if that's a relevant detail or not.

Those are decorations added by the CVS plugin to indicate that thep roject has been checked out from CVS and which host it came from.

(The above is a guess - I don't use CVS - I use Subversion instead but it has similar decorations.)

You can change the decorations at Window | Preference | Team | CVS | Label Decorations.

Ah - thanks! Yes, it seems the person who used to use this PC used the CVS plugin with their Eclipse, whereas we don't have it set up on my old one. Thanks :-)
 
Seriously? That's what you're going with? I prefer this tiny ad:
